a quick make

If you do go to Spotlight and want to make something quick and easy buy a bit of this also.
I think it is called Minkie - will show you later in the week involves buttons also

Two days in a row!!!

My learning curve is increasing on this relatively new Apple Mac. quite a few differences from the older HP desktop but photo opportunities are certainly expanded enormously.

First of all, if anyone is interested in making the Dr.Seuss cushion or in fact anything else from this fabric get along to Spotlight quick, they currently have 40% off this range which brings it down from around $25.00 a metre to $15.00 and you certainly do not need a whole metre of all the fabrics in the range just small amounts of each. Download the tutorial from the wonderful Nova flitter of :- and away you go.

The Tutorial is called Peek-a-boo bunting tutorial.

Buttons are also one of my favourite items and I collect far too many. However the Bentleigh Market on a Sunday morning often has the Button Lady stall where there is  fascinating range of buttons very reasonably priced. She is next there on June 30th so if you are in the are check it out.
