Love Fridays

Today I'm lovin' Friday just because it's not 34 degrees and humid!



I'm also lovin' all these Golden Hands magazines that Belinda gave me on Wednesday. They finally made it out of the car today!


My mum has been down to the country this week to help my sister out with some gardening.
The stash above is what she bought back from the oppy for me....

I popped into an oppy on the way home from pulmonary rehab today to find my myself some shorts for summer. I've lost a bit of weight so everything I own is falling down and I'm getting really sick and tired of hitching up my pants.

I found the peacock pillowcase above, all of the fabric below, a pair of shorts, and a skirt for $10.
So much for decluttering the house and the fabric stash.

Now that's definitely a reason to Love Friday....

.....and if you haven't been over to visit Big Cat today, then you definitely should, because there's a fantastic suprise in store!

Wow the peacocks!! I just had a little giggle as I had a visual of the peacocks pecking you on the ear whilst you are asleep! tee hee.. :)

Hope you like the retro flower sheet, I thought it might be good for panels on the handbags??
That Peacock pillowcase reminds me of the peacocks at Penshurst or Hamilton someone we knew had? Was the male named Andrew like the politician??

It's a darn good thing I never find anything near as cool as those peacocks when *I* go thrifting. I would be so frozen by indecision on which perfect thing to make with it, that it would sit in my stash for years and years.

Yepp, that was me trying to stifle insane jealousy. :p

Oh, btw, the button came!! Thank you SO SO much!! :D

Nice additions to the stash there. You've got a bit of reading to keep you going too.

You always manage to find the best stuff at the oppy. What an excellent haul for $10!

The stash is great. And YAH! for losing weight. Op shops are good for the downsize slide. I lost 20 kg a couple of years ago and did all my downsize slide shopping at op shops. (pretty easy when you do almost ALL your clothes shopping at op shops).

I'd never heard of Golden Hands until recently I was given a whole pile too - there's no way I'm giving mine away!
