Post-hospital, I've been feeling a little Meh the past week. No motivation to do much more than veg on the couch and watch old episodes of Gimore Girls (season 6, just in case you're interested).

My major crafting achievement for the week was making a pile of fabric-covered buttons, which are destined to become magnets in time for my next market. I love how focusing on a tiny bit of a pattern makes the fabric look so different! There is some Bliss and Ruby tucked in there, and even a sneaky Cat in the Hat.

I went for a wander around the shops yesterday and stumbled on this gorgeous box/tray; I think its new but made to look old, but it's perfect for keeping sewing notions in, or for displaying fabrics at markets. It was on sale too which is always a plus.

Another one of my lucky finds this weekend; a canvas print of the Brooklyn Bridge for the tidy sum of $5! It's now hanging in my room as motivation for another trip to The Big Apple.

I'm off to do a little sewing; a cot quilt which I hope to sell....I'm dipping my toes in those waters again.
