This Weeks Finds....

I've had such a busy week this week - working, op shopping and learning Photoshop! I've downloaded the free trial for a month and have been feverishly watching tutorials on you tube etc. Phew...lots to learn. Fortunately, a friend at work is a photoshop whizz and came and gave me some tips at home yesterday which speeded things up. It's amazing how long you can spend nutting something like that out yourself, then someone with experience comes along and bam - you've learnt more in 1 hour than you have all week!
The sun's still shining here in Dunedin but there's been a definite cooling down in the last week...hello winter.


Cute Japanese tecups...






plates, plates and more plates....



cushion covers....



7m of furnishing fabric....yum










a large cane sewing basket...





I have a huge pile of early "Stitchcraft" magazines so these will be added...


bingo?...






Tinker!


This reminded me of my Dad as he had one of these that he used for weighing fish....

  5. A lot of great finds! Yes I see we both brought home cute little scales. I too am trying to learn how to make better photos. I bought a great new camera and have been using PicMonkey (a free online program).

    1. I'm probably going to use Gimp which does 90% of what Photoshop does but it's free! It was just that a friend at work new Photoshop so I figure if I learn on that I should be able to transfer those skills to Gimp....here's hoping!
