I did have a go at making myself some button brooches from the artsycraftybabe blog. They turned out ok - not as good as hers though. Em decided to claim the yellow one & has hidden it in her room somewhere so I will have to track it down (it would be my favourite of the 2 as well).
I have also bought a Newlook pattern to make a long sleeve top for me. I will be making the white style top, but making it shorter. I am going to make it with this red spot cotton with embroidery all over (bargain from spotlight - end of roll had about 4m on for $10).
Tonight I cut out a vintage wrap skirt pattern from a fab green & yellow floral vintage sheet for me, so I am getting there!
Today I did get some smurf fabric to make Liam some pants - I have been after it for a while, but usually sells for a mint on ebay. I found this drill print from 1980 at a local retro type store for more than you would pay in an opshop, but much cheaper than ebay, so I was rather happy.
A couple of weeks back I stumbled across a thrift store that was selling out someones stash of mags they had donated & got this lot for 10c a pop - so I bought about 20 - they are just lovely to look at (esp when hiding from kids in toilet !!) if nothing else.

Mr Quarantine had it all this time - I honestly think he wanted the yummy looking chicken chocolates!!
SO THANK YOU SO MUCH MON!!!
There are some crochet flowers (I was so excited - I can't crochet, but I love to add these as embellishments) tied with gorgeous spotty ribbon. An egg jigsaw, egg decoration (fab craft to do with the kids!!) Some 3d Scrapbooking pics & last of all these GORGEOUS chicken chocolates which I have miraculously kept hidden from the children!!

As you can probably tell from most of my pictures I do not have the photographic skill gene! But I suppose they give you the general idea!
I am at my Dads place at the moment in a little place outside Orange (in NSW) and will have to post a pic later of some of my opshop finds. I also visited "The Home Patch" in Bathurst (Annie Downes patchwork store) which was just lovely - oh to have had endless money to spend (and no children with me while I shopped!!!).
