I found a little treasure in a second-hand store a week or so ago, and although she was only $2, I was umming and ahhing about the purchase because my house is so full of “stuff” that I wondered where I’d house her! But she brought back too many happy childhood memories, so the gold coin was exchanged and home she came!
Do you remember???
The sweet little Holly Hobbie?
This doll is an original 1970s version complete with printed patchwork dress and the cutest little plastic boots!
I found a home for her… right next to my craft desk… I’m looking at her right now as I type and am so glad I scooped her up!
For more Tuesday’sTreasures head on over to Clare’s Craft Room! :-)
A LITTLE BIRDIE TOLD ME!
If you have a love of pincushions and have not yet headed over to Among the Gum Trees this week, then you’ll be in for a lovely surprise when you do! Us girls did a pincushion swap with the leftover fabrics from the quilt we made for Fresh Hope. I shared the pincushion I made on the blog yesterday and Jenny gave the final instalment today!
I based my design on the Fresh Hope logo, it was so fitting seeing as we’d used the fabrics to make the quilt for this wonderful charity. You can read more about it here. In the meantime I’ll leave you with a few pictures of the little birdie. I was so happy with the way she turned out, and she has now taken up perch with the lovely Dawn! :-)
Until next time – happy stitching!! Hugs! Vikki xx
