What I made

I have finally got organised and taken photos of the purse that I made at GDITC at Nundle in March.

I really enjoyed making the purse as I've never made one before.
I thought it would be really hard to sew the clasp on but once you got it started it proved quite easy to sew on.

This is the beautiful pin cushion that I received in the swap from Josie from Inverell (no blog).
It is one of Annie's designs and I really love it.

Tuesday's Treasures

Last weekend Treasure and I went to Tweed Heads, NSW for the weekend.
We saw Brian Cadd and Russell Morris at Twin Towns on the Sat night. They were really good.

I had to go to work on the Saturday (about 45 minutes from where we were staying) to attend a course.
While I was gone Treasure had a lovely relaxing day reading.
He also went to a large Antique Shop.
He wanted to buy some brass for his collection but instead he bought me 3 miniature sewing machines to add to my collection.

This one is silver and is a thimble.
We think it is over 100 years old but are not sure. It does have a hallmark on it which we will have to research to find out it's age and history.
It is really gorgeous.

This one is a Singer 1940 lead miniature sewing machine.

This one is a pencil sharpener and looks like it may be a form of a spinning wheel.
