Revamped!

Goodness, another Post so soon - I should be stitching, but Browsing is so much more comfortable these days!
Do you remember me showing an old cupboard and talking of having it painted red - Blushingham - well here it is plus the canvas of My Angel - extreme? - well maybe, but I am feeling so good about my new-look dining area! Australian designer china gracing it - Robert Gordon has been stored in the shed for over 5 years!

Sorry to bring up this subject, Christine of Once Upon a Quilt ... Now, Christine is a collector of honey pots and has an amazing collection - and I have been known to collect a few antiques in my day, says she The Minimalist! I really adore this rare little antique treasure, did have a little thought of posting it to Christine, but that little thought flitted out of my mind very quickly! Maybe I should add a codicil to my Will! Hey, this is really the TRUE colour of Blushingham - very pretty!
A gorgeous day for mail today - all the way from Pink Penguin in The USA - do visit her blog and Etsy site - thank you so much, Ayumi! Gorgeous girl, if you haven't visited, please do, you will be thrilled!
A very little sneak peek for Someone Special - French General Rural Jardin Chanvre Blue arrived today - I hope you Repro Enthusiasts approve it for the background of a very special quilt! I feel sure Kathie of Inspired by Antique Quilts will aprove - what do you think, Kathie, will have a little chat one day soon? One day all will be revealed!
Not much stitching happening and I really shouldn't be showing my designing in progress - but I really feel I have achieved a long-time-wish ... let's hope it all comes up nicely in fabric - and yes, all my own work - lets not talk about Copyright issues here - I'm over it! If one has the ability, let's just share!
This is my little? hindrance - my boob is sitting on a big fat cushion built into the sling - never mind, not too long now! Happy weekend everyone!

Have you fallen in love with Rural Jardin? It's on my cutting table today (again!) and I can't get enough of it's sublime texture and aged appearance...luverly.
I'm so glad you're almost done with your sling, sweetheart. {{{hugs}}}

I know you must be frustrated, not being able to do all you like to do. But getting that cabinet painted should make your room so much brighter. Hope your quiet time goes quickly.

Kris said...

Lovely, lovely stuff Lurline! Except for the hindrance. Can't believe you haven't died of frustration with that holding you back! Well done!!!
