I really prefer that to op shopping don't you?
So lately, on the way to all my different jobs I've been stopping in at different op shops, Vinnie's, the Salvos. And I've been finding things!!
Mostly pillowcases:

The one on the right is a pair! for 50c! A bit faded but still rocking.

Then I found a doona cover, I really like the mustard colour.

And more pillowcases, I am loving the yellow colours at the moment.

The one on the right came in it's original package and is in perfect condition.
Thanks for all the quilt love! Thanks Jodie for sending everyone here. Thank goodness I actually had something to show when everyone was visiting! Here is the gorgeous recipient
And with me, Aunty Sel.
And a full length shot of my gorgeous vintage dress which I totally adore and have to give back to my thrifting goddess sister. She won't sell it to me!

drumroll please....

Here is my beautiful spots and stripe fabric from the eb swap.

Here are my fanshmastic vintage sheet fqs
Thanks so much Meika!

And here is Miss Izabella's quilt.

I'm not so sure I want to give it away! I still need to work on pinning though. This was fresh out of the dryer and so crinkly and perfect.

Edited to add- This quilt was made using a tutorial from the talented crazy mom quilts. (I only used block A and did white borders.


So I posted away 3 pincushions to those girls who entered my giveaway but didn't win. Strangely enough I still haven't heard from the grand prize winner (lol)...

And here is the wrap I made for Mel's gratitude swap. Although no-one can get in touch with my partner...

From her swap answers she said she loved pink and loves chocolate so I also put in my absolute fave You'll love Coles mint chocolate but because that seemed dodgy I added a block of caramel chip chocolate. I also decorated some cards and put them in, ready to use.
You win some, you lose some right?

I did receive my vintage fat quarters and had a quick peek but it's been another manic week so I will photograph them today and show you all later.

Izy's quilt is done!! In the washing machine now so hopefully I can blog that later today (*insert dancing with joy smilie*)... as long as it doesn't fall apart.
