after a bit of a break from the sewing machine (well apart from the mending jobs) i decided a small patchwork piece was next. the fabric is mainly vintage sheets, with plenty from the FQ swap, and a couple of tea towels too.
the embroidery hoop was op-shopped way back and the beautiful yellow woollen pom-poms were a recent etsy purchase from Azalea Cottage Crafts.
i've seen some beautiful wire word art around blog-land of late so decided to try my hand at making my own. i simply folded in half and stitched a long length of bias binding and threaded through the wire. I then bent it to shape.
the pretty little milk glass bowls were op-shopped for $4.
now just to find a bare section of wall to hang it. x

a collection of my op-shop finds from the past couple of weeks..
a new Johnson design.
a few more sheets for the stash
a Cath Kidston-inspired top

slowly but surely the dated light fittings around here are being replaced with doily covered shades. the frames have all been op-shopped and the doilies have been gifted and thrifted. the shadows cast on the ceiling bring a smile to my face.
do you have a favourite doily upcycling project?
joining in with Christina's made by hand link up.
