Lovely Mail and other fun stuff


Today I received in the mail something I purchased on "Etsy" on the weekend. It is the first time I have ever purchased anything on Etsy, but this was from Mildura in Victoria, so I figured it would be great to support a local craftsperson. I found a blog which then pointed me in the direction of this lovely blog.....and so on and so forth....I just love the way it was packaged....like opening an early birthday present. So now I need to find something lovely on which to wear my new brooch....
I also made these little guys over the weekend for an ATC (Artist Trading Card) Swap group to which I belong.....the theme was "plastics from the kitchen"....so I sliced in half the little soy sauce fish thingies which you get when buying california rolls, painted them with some "Lumiere" paint, an old onion bag and some hand painted fabric and there we had my little ATC's. So I get to keep one and the rest are sent off to 5 others participating.



Oh....and an update on my long list of UFO's/WIP's....I have now completed 47 of the pinwheels for my "wedding" quilt.....only 27 to go......will post some more photos over the weekend.

How inventive you are! I love how you think of things to make from really nothing.
