Revamped

After all that veiled whingeing I did on my last post, the delivery company finally found my missing table top (yes, they...and I....lost it for five days) and winged it over to our place yesterday, toot sweet! Phew!

But before I give you the "reveal"....can I just say that I had one of the best swap packages land on my front door this morning from Louise!

Get a load of the "geezer" pic........


.....a heap of scrap fabrics in my colours and a beautiful dragonfly-embroidered needle book (the inside lining has fun dragonfly print all over it)............


....and *squeal* a lovely twirly skirt for the bub! How cute!


I love every piece of this package. Thank you very much, Louise, from me and the bub! And thank you, Belinda and Kate, for hosting!

And without further ado....here's the right leg....


......the left leg.....


....and the revamped table top.


All is well in the world again!................and it's back to sewing for me.

well, now that you look so organised I expect plenty of craft 'porn' photos for us of all your inspiring work.

It looks amazing and as for that Louise and her swap packages - she is one clever girl. Love the dragon fly.

Your sewing space looks so nice. I am so jealous of your new table. Perhaps I will need to find a nice white one to replace the old one. I love the dragonfly purse and the skirt too, just adorable.

Oh oh, have a look at my blog & new studio area, it looked so lovely in the images . . . now it's actually in production & piles of fabric get shuffled about, not so neat now. Love the desk, happy sewing, love Posie
