In My Little Corner of the World!

It seems like a little while since I've been here - quite a lot of Reading and Inspiration - very little Commenting and Replying (Sorry!). I have been trying to sew - flopped - aargh! Oh, I've been extra wicked, too -I have missed two Fat Quarter Birthday Swaps also - 'hey - that's enough, Girl - move on, no matter what!'

. One gorgeous folk art platter from Intercourse, Pennsylvania to Perth, Western Australia - love those leaves on the tree.

. Below it, a jug from Ikea - local, but simple and lovely.

. Back right - have any of you received a pressie too precious to use - just too gorgeous and made for me by Chookyblue. Ah, ha, I do use it and quite a lot, too - for little sewing tools, the odd business card I know I will use, a tiny fabric swatch I know I will need to match!

It is so lovely to get away from the real world for a little while - this is the most beautiful milk jug cover I have ever seen - see how the tiny beads are slipped on the thread and crocheted to form the star design - there could be no background design more suitable than Liberty of London!
A late lunch again, some birthday present posting (I'm so sad and sorry, Barbara, Christine and of course you too, Maree - I feel I will be blacklisted in Blogland,and here I am telling all the world about it!). Please forgive me for all my wicked ways!
