Things that make me smile...

Small people who think a washing basket is for 'row, row, rowing' the boat.

Gifts made by Grandma that are an instant hit.

Mum made each of the girls a little patchwork blanket using stretch scraps left over from making PJ's for her seven grandkids. The blankets were immediately wrapped around 'baby' and tucked under their arms ready for an adventure.

She also modified one large footy scarf to make two very sweet small ones. What can I say, I'm brainwashing them early to be Bulldogs fans, the same as Dad did to me!

It also goes without saying that I love fabric - perhaps even more when it's on sale!

Amitie is a lovely place to hang out and breathe in all the fabric loveliness, even if you can only take a small portion of it home with you.

Hope something in your week has made you smile.

Your post made me smile! I love the shot of your girls in the laundry basket - what a couple of sweethearts. Thanks too for the fabric eye candy! You've been quite busy making some beautiful clothes and I've no doubt some more wonders will result from your latest fabric finds. Enjoy!
