Coffee and places to drink it

Did you know I love a great cup of coffee? Not the ones that have so much milk in it that you might as well be drinking milk....

At one of my favourite Coffee places at Brighton Eclectea they also sell vintage stuff and when I say stuff I mean stuff.

Vintage, retro furniture, retro clothes, cups saucer you get the picture.
While there last week they had this lovely Cami hanging there, well not not for me as it isn't my style or size,grin but check out the suffolk puffs on it.

A-mart All Sports

Well i needed new walking shoes as the ones i had did not fit right.

I went to A-mart All Sports and a lovely young man took pitty on me and helped me decide on this great pair of shoes.
Yes the price tag was right up there, but with a 25% discount i survived the checkout.

They are Asics and Gel Kayano 19, i have a bad knee and need good support and I can walk easy 7klm at this stage.

As you know I am getting ready for the End Women's Cancer walk at the end of October and we then will have to walk 60 klm over two days.

I have reached my half way mark raising the $ 2000 for me to walk.


The link will take you to my site if you care to have a look.

The large one is hand applique and hand quilted and she is asking $800

The smaller one is also hand applique but has been quilted by a longarm quilter and asking price is $400

Both quilts are beautiful.

Scrap Basket Sunday

I have decided to join Kim for the Scrap Basket Sunday and the reason being is that I need to finish a challenge made from scraps given to me.

As I have challenged 11 others to work with 500g of my scraps I thought it would only be fair that I work with some of theirs, I am going to auction the quilts in October for charity.

This is what I have made so far....

I am going to do a little more applique this afternoon.
Happy stitching
