Welcome,I hope you are all having a great day. I left for my walk this morning at twenty to nine and it was only five degrees. Boy did my fingers feel the cold. Back home an hour later and it was 12 degrees Celsius. I went inside and added some more wood to the fire and it is warm inside now. There was supposed to be rain and storms but nothing but clear skies outside. We can hope for some rain. We certainly need it,we have only had 81 mls of rain so far this year. Way below what we normally have. We celebrated Lucy's 17th Birthday on Tuesday. We both went to a local cafe called "Lucy's Tearooms" for lunch then for tea we went to the Tavern. Ian Bonnie and Ryan joined us. You always get a giant size meal at the Tavern,you certainly never leave hungry. The rose in the above photo is called "Many Happy Returns"
This month I have decided to have a "budget" month. I will be very careful what I spend on craft. I did purchase this bag of squares from a garage sale for $5.00. In it were 29 8 inch squares and 13 7 inch squares. I think that is a great price and it is all cut up for me.
Continuing on with the budget theme. I have made my own light box. We had this fish tank in the shed collecting dust. I had saved this light fitting and found it. Now I have my very own light box. Though Lucy would love to have some fish in the tank.
You may wonder what a cross stitch ,a cushion , a ladybird heat pad a bucket and some folk art boxes have in common. Well I bought these all from Vicki when she had her shop in Mundaring. Vicki's shop had the best things in there plus Vicki and her staff were so welcoming. I have yet to see that in another shop since. I always bought my candles from her as well. There were always some burning in her shop. A while back Vicki decided to shift down south so her shop closed. The good news is Vicki has decided to start a blog. Vicki also has her website set up and has some great things for you to buy. Check out her postage deals as well. Welcome to the world of blogging Vicki and have fun. Please hop over to Vicki and welcome her.
Now I better get onto some sewing, I haven't done any sewing for the last couple of days.
