So, okay, I couldn't do a road trip without putting the brakes on for a few op shops along the way. This was the extent of the haul though. If I was a dealer I could've brought back much more, but I am just me, a lover of beautiful things and vintage fabric fiend. Really...three items. Well, eleven if you want to count every silver utensil. I have been looking for silverware like my Nana's for an age, so this find brought a skip to my step in Whanganui. And the fabrics...a cotton/wool blend in autumn tones with a lovely drape and this vintage cotton with a fabulous kitchen print.
I realised while I was away that I hadn't been writing or crafting for months. This is not good. And 'too busy' just won't cut it for an excuse. No creative expression makes me far too serious a person. So! The trusty Bernina Nova is out...cushions for the new couch are underway and a pile of fabrics await my perusal for the next project. It feels good to be excited about making again.
