Your little Girl, Your Princess, Your Angel!

I have got to stop surfing the net! I keep finding all these awesome sites. I'm beginning to really love Etsy.

I have found this new shop just for little girls! This lady makes hair accessories. No, that should say simply gorgeous hair accessories.

I have added her site to my links so you have to check it out!

Isn't this romantic

I know this has nothing to do with my vintage stuff, but i just had to show this to you.

It's called "Heart, Spirit, Love" and it is a collection of handmade things that are for sale on Etsy.

This piece was chosen by my sister. Members on the site can make lists like this one, and then if it gets enough clicks it may make it to the front page.

How cool is this? Check it out by clicking on the link.

Glorious Vintage!!

Yay, my first top is now complete! I'm sooooo excited.

Tomorrow i will have the evening dress completed as well, and during the rest of the week i am to complete my second top and also the pair of pants i purchased from "Glorious Vintage".

If you haven't checked out her site yet, please do, she has got an enormous range of clothes and patterns.

There is also a flickr section of her photos.

I have decided that Spotlight just has to be the best store in the world, apart from Bunnings, I must admit that I love that store as well!

When class starts up again i will be making a stunning suit made of a top and skirt, another Glorious Vintage pattern.

I will take a photo later and show you all.

Ciao for now.

My venture into quilting.

I have never attempted quilting before, but have always had these grand ideas about making an heirloom quilt using photos in the squares.

Getting back to reality though, i bought some country crafts books while we were in Kyneton and there is a quilt in it that you would put on your dining table.

I have decided i am going to make it. While we were in Kyneton i visited the quilt store and bought some "vintage" inspired charm squares.

Last night i decided to finally get my butt into gear and attempt to make the quilt, how hard can it be right??

So i am cutting out my little triangles and realise i don't actually have enough charm squares for the size of the quilt, so it's either going to be a smaller version or it's another trip to Kyneton!!

Me thinks Kyneton's looking like a good option!!! lol
