As it has been so extremely hot the last week, I havn't been able to get out into the garden. So I went through my sewing room cupboards again sorting into piles of to do's and to throw etc: I came across my rag doll I made a few years back but she still hadn't been dressed. Well now Miss Daisy has a new identity and she looks so pretty in her daisy dress and apron. I even used up some little crocheted doilies for pockets and some buttons from the button jar. I just love ric rac braid and found some in my vintage box. The white daisy lace came from a vintage wedding dress train. With the left over yellow fabric I made two cushion covers with daisies.

We have suspected we might have a mouse in the house for some time as the house next door has been empty for eighteen months. Yesterday we bought mousetraps and placed them in front of the stove.

After reading Astara's latest post I remembered a collection of sea urchin shells I picked up on the beach at Cabowie on the York Peninsula a couple of years ago.

I thought I would sort through my stash of old fabrics today and came accross some nice colour ways. I turned some into simple cushions with ties on the back or maybe the front. Anyway I was quite pleased with the result. Now where do I put them thats all I need another cushion. ha ha.
