Op Shop Finds - Sweet Tablecloths

Oh my gosh I was lucky enough to find seven beautiful hand embroidered tablecloths yesterday.  Thought you might like a peek ....

I just love the one with bluebirds & grub roses.  One is yet to be finished, maybe I'll have to learn embroiderey at some time!
Have an awesome week!

New Bears

These are my latest creations.  The larger bear is made from some old velveteen I picked up at a Bear Show.  I've got fibres coming out of holes in his feet which I have then darned over.  I've tried to give him a bit of a saggy look.  The smaller bear is a Sasha Pokrass design & I've made him out of mohair.  Am yet to rough him up to look old & battered!

Brisbane Bear Show

On Sunday I attended the Doll & Bear Show in Brisbane.  This is my li'l mohair bear I made, wearing a dress I crafted from lots of vintage & antique laces.  Anyway I'm pleased to say I won the people's choice award.  

My very good friend Pam from Cloth to Creation blogspot came with me so it was a much more enjoyable time having someone to share it with & she was such a help.  We also had fun searching out lovely old laces!

Xmas Stocking Swap

Yay my lovely Xmas Stocking arrived in the mail today.  The very talented Anita from http://anitameade.typepad.com/ created this for me along with a  handcrafted card, gorgeous hand-stamped gift tags & some very yummy choccies that didn't make it to the photo shoot!

Thanks Anita. I really love it!
