ABOVE:  Really pretty Eh?  This is how far I got on the carry bag/cover for my cutting board last night... It's going to be a really lovely cover for it... and it's a great way to use up small scraps of fabric too!

Today:  back to the Hospice shop again... wonder if I'll find any treasures today?

When I get home from there I will continue working on that carry bag/cover. 

ABOVE: until I get back... I'll leave you with this picture of Teddy and Coco, sleeping together ... awwww they are so cute.
ABOVE:   the BIG news of the day is:  Amanda and Andrew are having A BABY GIRL!!!  I am thrilled to bits!  She is due late February...congrats A & A.

Today at Hospice I did my job very well.. I helped up the grand total of money made!  I found some real treasures... and will show you all later after I've had me lunch.... 

Right, today's treasures:

ABOVE: Jam jars!  Cos I want to make jam one day!

ABOVE: this cute picture.. well HELL... it had a lighthouse AND a boat AND a seagull!  I had to buy it!

 ABOVE:  THREE .. I mean THREE SHADOW BOX pictures, with REAL  sand in them!   And they look just like some fabric I have with beach huts!  How bloody awesome are they???  (Hmmm... just have to decide if I want to keep them, or give them away as gifts???)  It's gunna be hard to decide.

ABOVE:  and lastly, a really nice shirt for me Mum, a cute top for Brylee and more baby booties.... and now that we know what No#7 grandbaby is I shall have to start hunting for PINK ones!

End of Day:  and I have finished the cutting board bag/cover.   It looks neat.  I'm very happy with it.... cos it will not only be great to carry my cutting board to patchwork class, but it can also be for all the other 'flat' things too.  I need to get some snap type fastners for the top but in essence it's finished.  I will show you  tomorrow.  AND don't forget, tomorrow is my 4th year Blogoversary and I'm having a GIVEAWAY!  nite nite.
