I still haven't seen the movie

So I was browsing around and found this great blog called Toy-a-day. The guy who writes the blog created a basic template and will create a new toy every day for a year. He offers the basic template as a free PDF file as well as almost all of his toy creations. He's done some really amazing cute characters. Besides these two one of my other favorites was the grumpy old man from UP.

I haven't seen the movie Where the Wild Things Are but it is one of my favorite childhood books. I made these to put in my niece's room I think they are an easy fun and cute project to do with kids AND adults :)

I heart thrifting

I love treasure hunting! That's what I call thrifting, cause really it's sort of a treasure hunt. Here is my found treasure.

found a stash of 21 vintage zippers...I think I pretty much hit the jackpot with these.

I also love embroidered linens...these are so pretty.

I think this is one of the best finds lately, it has a lot of good information. I have The Complete Guide to Needlework already and I can say even though these books were printed in the 1980's the information is so useful.

Buttons who doesn't love buttons!

aaand this is not a thrift find, I made it and I'm thinking I like it so much I might make these Christmas presents.

Ok off to do some more work cutting and prepping before the procrastination bug hits me!
