Today I have been very busy cutting up a vintage tablecloth, in fact I have cut no less than 360 CROCHET CIRCLES!!~~

Over the past weekend, I cut the cloth up into three sections..
dyeing one lot PINK...
the other green...
leaving the rest its natural cream colour..

I especially love the little extra "raised" bits on the centre of each circle, so that adds to their appeal for ladies who use them for crafting purposes..

Now I am about to list them on ebay , but their grouped together display on my cupcake holder looks like some kind of "gelati" cupcake fest!!

I also received the latest edition of Jeanne Darc magazine, so in between cutting (and may I add my tennis lesson), I have been distracted by the never ending GORGEOUS photos/ideas in this edition..

Ohh!! to wrap a rustic loaf of bread in some burlap/lace/string & give as a gift for a luncheon???
OR to makeover wonderful dressmakers' dummies...
JUST some of the lovely ideas featured..

PLUS not to mention the LATEST ARTFUL BLOGGING magazine arrived from the USA..

& MOLLIE MAKES from the UK..
so I am in MAGAZINE heaven....

ps..sorry about pictures..I still cannot get my camera to focus properly (is on some kids & pets setting which I have NO idea how to fix!!~~
