At our craft group yesterday I finished Block 8 of Verandah Views and have nearly finished the cornerstone blocks as well. That means I will have to start looking out fabrics to piece it all together. I still have the label to embroider, but I can continue with that each fortnight when we sit and stitch.
I had to chuckle when I showed this block to Mick. He read it out and then added “and watch out for snakes”! He knows me too well. I’ve always got my eyes peeled, and fortunately haven’t seen any more lately.
I’ve noticed a few blogs with titles “Flea Market Finds” today and thought I might join in.
These few linens are recent purchases for next to nothing. The house is actually a tea cosy, although it has not padding. I have plans for this one.
I also have plans for this lovely embroidered doiley.
This peg apron is quite stained and worn, so is just for posterity. I seem to have
quite a few lots that I have bought “just because”. I like to think of all the use it must have had – probably for wooden dolly pegs on an old “clothes props” clothes line.
The last two came from the Australia Day Red Cross Stall.
