A very belated Happy Monday to you. No time to post yesterday, Bonnie had the computer and was making dozens of discs of photo's from her trip. Hopefully it has all worked out this time. There is a big pile of discs on the printer ready to be posted to her friends. Onto what is making me happy this week. The first one would be my "instincts". I quite often have a feeling or instinct that something good is about to happen. A fortnight ago today I felt I had to go and have a look in Good Sammy's. I certainly wasn't after anything in particular or needed anything. One look in my sewing room would prove that. I walked in and went straight to the table that held the fabric,the one that said $1.00. They quite often put fabric and linen articles out for a dollar. I went around the table and saw some Toile fabric rolled up. I touched and admired and couldn't believe my luck.
I took the fabric home and rang Mum to see if she wanted something made from it. I said the material was too lovely to cut up and suggested a Doona cover. She came up the next day and said "Yes Thanks." Yesterday I got out the Over locker and Sewing Machine and whizzed up a Doona Cover for Mum and still have some of the material left over. I think I will make a table runner with that piece.
Other things Making a Happy Monday are:
A great couple of days celebrating Mother's Day. Yes not just Sunday but it was spread over a couple of days this year.
Planting Bulbs in the garden, some White Dutch Iris and Bluebells.
Seeds of the Pink and White Everlasting coming up. I did put some snail pellets nearby as they just love chomping on fresh greenery.
Watching the movie. "We bought a Zoo." Thanks Lucy for that DVD.
Reading,currently reading a book by Monica Ferris with three murder mysteries in one. They are the first Needlecraft Mysteries. Crewel World, Framed in Lace and A Stitch in Time.
Receiving my win from Sandy at Cookies & Cream Craft. A lovely kit called "Vintage Broderi Kit" by Rosalie Quinlan. Thanks Sandy.
Seeing it is Tuesday I will link this post to Melody for her Tuesday's Treasures.
