Today I am happy that the late Winter bulbs are in flower.
Nothing like a vase of Jonquils on the kitchen window sil to perfume the room. I love the perfume but it is a bit strong so I open the window a bit. We bought a pot of these a few years ago from a garage sale and divided them up. It looks like after they have flowered this year further dividing will have to take place.
On Sunday Ian and I took a drive across to York for a look around and to have lunch. I was very happy to find that we have our own sock manufacturer nearby. A lovely range of socks and other woollen products all made in Australia. It is so great to find something made locally and especially that it doesn't say "Made in China" on the label. I was in love with some of the woollen blankets that are from the Tasmanian woollen mills.
I also happened upon a new craft/machine embroidery shop with a range of threads wool etc. I was very happy to see a range of West Australian embroidery designs. There are three in the range and I chose the one named "Regional Western Australia" This one included our local post office amongst them. Looking forward to embroidering these designs.
This morning I helped a friend work out how to make bias binding for a project she is working on. Always happy to pass on patchwork information.
This week I want to share my little painted stool which sits beside my chair. This was painted by the same lady who painted our house sign and a few other things I have around Kainga. Make sure you check out the other Treasure's being showcased this week at Melody's blog. You never know what you will find.
