I wanted to say a huge thank you to Tina from The Quiet Home who very kindly flagged up my blog to her readers. I have just began to understand what a lovely unique community I am entering. I have been able to read some fabulous blogs and pick up some useful tips as well. When I started my blog I really didn't expect anyone to read it so the comments have been wonderful, thank you all so much.
Writing my blog has also opened up my eyes to the amount of work and commitment involved. I have been reading blogs for quite a while now and I am ashamed to say that, for most of that time, I have been a 'secret follower'. There was a reason for this which was that I didn't feel that I had much to offer as I was new to crafting. Having feedback on my blog has helped me to understand how important feedback really is and this weekend has been especially nice because of the special comments I have received so a big thanks once again to you all.
The other little point I wanted to say was that I have read over my posts once again and been horrified by the number of typos I have made. I am able to touch type but this can a hindrance sometimes as I do miss errors so sorry to everyone. I must do better in future!!
As you know I do love anything vintage and have wanted an old kitchen unit for years, much to the amusement of my husband. I have lusted over the many magazines showing the cupboards, thinking I would never find one. Well lovely readers I found one and have just picked it up.

I also picked up this lovely embroidered piece of linen for £4 at a charity shop over the weekend. I adore crinoline ladies and am always on the lookout for old embroidered pieces. I thought I would try and put a small lining with some ties to make a cushion. This will be my next project along with my crochet cushion.
I hope to see you all very soon, do call in any time you are all more than welcome.
