I designed this little camera case a while back for Daughter No.2. Well No.1 requested one for her holiday and I needed one for my camera too of course. So I got sewing the other evening and I'd forgotten just how quick and easy they are. Of course I had to use my favourite fabrics for mine. And one of Aunty Liz's precious French antique buttons. Well it just wouldn't be complete without one!
And now I can enjoy my favourite things anytime I wish now.
And just look what I picked up at the charity shop yesterday. I think the woman thought I was a little mad not wanting the whole box of threads. I explained in the end that I was only interested in the wooden spools. Of course the silky thread will be lovely to use, if only most of them weren't purple! Still they are looking lovely on my buffet in one of my rose bowls.
And then there were three! Yes little Rosie was born on Sunday night. She's preparing to leave the burrow already sadly. A certain little niece will be receiving her for her birthday. Thank you all so much for your kind comments regarding my little bunnies. I even have a bunny swap lined up now with the lovely Amanda from Amanda Makes! Several of you have suggested I make a pattern to sell. We'll certainly think about that!
Yesterday our weather was the best in months. Summer really has been here for a couple of days. We even visited the beach in the afternoon. What a treat to have the sand between our toes once more and the warmth of the sun on our skin. May it continue for the rest of these school holidays.
There is something very special about a beautiful day. It really gets you going and puts a smile on everyone's faces. I hope you had a great day where you are too.
