Show and Tell Monday

Have done a lot this past week, so where to start, perhaps at the beginning. Used my embellisher for the first time and made the teddy fabric with a mohair mix wool, then appliqued and made up into a cushion.

Then I finally finished the small shelf unit I picked up at the boot fair. No excuses to loose my scissors now, must just remember to hang them up each time, lol.

On Wednesday we went to Rye in East Sussex, Rye is part of the 1066 country side, a historic cinque port, this area is steeped in English history, and has retained its historic character and charm.

This windmill is now a guest house just at the bottom end of the town, love windmills so had to photograph this one.

We went mainly for DH to visit a 60's record shop he had seen advertised, supposedly had 1000 8 tracks, he was disappointed as they only ended up with a box full, he was not a happy bunny and only walked out with one.

I on the other hand did really well, found this lovely wire mannequin for my craft fair display, thought I could fill it with the pot pourri floral puffs.

Then went to a garden center on the way home and found some pink butterfly boxes again for my display.

Further along went to 'The Glitter Pot' a delightful craft shop filled with loads of goodies, I was quite reserved here but did buy a replacement cutting ruler, sizzlit corner die and some brads.

Am still drying rose petals and will have to start mixing the orris root and rose oil to enable the petals to infuse all that beautiful scent. The linen cupboard has a lovely aroma of roses every time I walk past.


  1. I would love to have that guest house in my backyard! Entertaining post! Enjoyed!

  2. Hi Caroline. It sounds like you had such a nice trip. I love all of your great finds. I love the butterfly boxes and I always like finding the wire dress forms. BUT I love, love, love the teddy bear pin cushion. Thats just adorable. Great job.
