A Busy Week

It's been a slightly busy, crazy week here. My sister and niece came for a visit and the girls loved it so much they keep calling and looking for them to make sure they are not hiding somewhere in the house.
We had a massive thunderstorm here yesterday which blew the filters on the internet, which we just got fixed and completely freaked the dog and the girls out - the storm freaked them out not the lack of internet which is what completely freaked me out.
So there has been no crafting this week, but I have recieved a lovely pile of old fabric from Mum's friend Lys. Here is just a bit of it, there is bits of linen and barkcloth in there so now I am inspired to go and do a bit of sewing.

We had quite the storm up here in Kelmscott ourselves last night, first time I'd heard thunder for a while!
Have you seen Amanda's little fella yet? We went to the hospital to meet her and her hubby and the little guy. Anyway, loving your work, especially your dolls!

Don't you just love old fabric from the bottom of peoples cupboards..... Even better if you didn't have to buy them.
I too have to visit a friend on the weekend to go thru fabrics.
Stay tuned.....

What a lovely pile of fabric, just begging to be made into wonderful things. Thanks for playing the name game, sorry I missed that post - Amelia and Grace are such beautiful classic names.
