sunday finds.

hello! popped over to the markets this morning for a wander and i managed to pick up a few fabric treats. have been cross stitching and watching friends for most of the day, sitting as close to the fan as possible. it's sweltering here in brisbane and my british blood does not handle these temps so well. also had a lovely chat with mama in sf, where it's rainy and cold...when's the next flight? i've been a bit of a homebody this weekend but after the first week back at work, i felt i really needed it. with a few things planned this week, i'm excited to be back on my game. happy sunday all.

delicious fabric placemats, found 3 of the yellow floral, 1 of the blue floral. love an eclectic mix.

love the texture, love the colours.

cannot get enough of aqua lately.

pretty florals continue in this lovely find.

gorgeous summer dress, looking forward to layering it with tights and coat in winter though.

orange and green florals are yum. little tablecloth that i'll use for a new project.

never been much of a holly hobbie fan, but this gorgeous single duvet cover was an absolute bargain at $1! think it needs to go into the glory box.

Ergh. My British blood is truly struggling too. It's still hot and it's night time!

Thanks for visiting my blog, and your lovely comment. Grandma's truly are the best people. My lovely Nanny Olga only passed away last week, so it's feeling very raw still. She had a good long (90 yrs) life though and I'm sure she's loving catching up with everyone. I love the photo of Kit and Nancy on here. So sweet!
