No Comment :( but Winner Allright!

So you are all a little shy out there, Nobody left any comments for my Giveaway but I noticed in my Stats that there was more traffic coming from some blogs, so with some detective work I found that I had been mentioned and linked from these Blogs so I thank you for that. Penny over at Back Valley Seasons is the winner of the polka dot purse, I'm putting it in the post today and it will be on its way to Australia. I love to get a present in the post so Penny I hope it cheers you up.

Some sewing & Free Give Away

I could not resist buying some lovely fabric last week in The Quilt Shop, Tuam. But I'm always at a loss how to use it. I have enough patchwork cushions and half made quilts, I like projects that I can complete in one sitting. So I make some I-Pad covers, they will be useful Christmas gifts. My sewing is not perfect but I think the design is pretty and original.



And while I had the sewing machine out I make some purses too,


It has been a while since I had a give away. So leave a comment and maybe link/mention my blog on yours and one of you will receive this very handmade polka dot zipper purse.

Antique Apothecary Drawer Run

I got a hugh response and had much interest in the antique drawer run I featured here earlier in the summer. I promised to keep you posted re. my restoration progress. I'm happy to report that I am almost there, many many hours later and much hard work I am delighted with the results. I need to thank Tom of Dowd Furniture for his sensitive craftsmanship, he repaired the broken drawers and now they all function as they should. I also got materials, expert historical advice and a Master class on staining and finishing the piece from Audrey (the daughter) of Adams and daughter, the best in the business. so just a little sneak preview here.

 I'm missing a knob, any suggestions where I might get a replacement? I still a few drawers to finish and wax and when that's done Ill show you the piece in its entirety so "Watch this space".
