A little sewing

I have been having a little play in the sewing room
here is a little dolly I made she is made from a doily and some buttons
I have also put some lavender in her stuffing she smells so nice now here are some little hearts I made I have lavender in them as well I think I like the cream one the best

I have had an ok day until this afternoon when hubby came in from the shed and told me he had cut his finger and we needed a trip to the hospital, some super glue and a tetnis shot and we are home so all turned out ok he will have a sore finger for a few days
I have been sewing a small table runner to donate to our local lodge`s social commity
I hope to get it quilted and bound this week
k I will be of now I need to finish cooking dinner

Ok here are the pics I was trying to post today the first one is a beautiful cup and saucer I am trying to get myself a crazy tea set together and I found this at a thrift shop for 20 cents . and here are some treasures I got for $4 a good buy I think
and here is my new chair I have been looking at this chair in one of the thrift shops in town for a few weeks now and the more I saw it the more I wanted it then today I just decided to go see if it was still there it was so I was got it for only$25 a bargain I think.

I was feeling a bit guilty you see we only had 3 chairs in our lounge room and with 4 of us living in the house someone got the floor but now I have my new chair we all get a seat I am happy

thank you for looking
will be back again soon

I am so lucky

look what I was given today.she is so beautiful and in good nick
she just needs an oil a new belt and a bulb and then I can have a play But
does anybody know anything about her she is a H G Palmer princess
she was made for the HG palmer store in Brisbane the couple who gave her to me brought her around 45 to 48 years ago she does not sew and when they heard I love to sew they wanted to give her to me
I would love to find out more about this brand I am thinking she may be a rebadged singer
can anybody give me any info ????

I am of now to have another look at her
hugs Beth
