latest Handmade purchases

I am so busy sewing but I have time for a quick post to show you my latest Handmade purchases. These three items are from some new additions to Handmade Heaven

This notebook holder from Finki uses the original images from 50's, 60's and 70's patterns and books. No scanners or photocopiers involved ...! A 100% one of a kind. I love Finki items and have quite a few in my collection now, you could say I nearly have a full set!

Lots of you will recognise these things from Curlypops, I always love her choice of fabrics in her projects and this glass case is an example of one of my fave fabrics.
I used it on the weekend too and let me tell you, it's not hard to find in your handbag! The heart brooch...what can I say, I'm so into hearts and having a flower brooch of curlypops, I already love the way these are done. Lots of stiffening and a great conversation starter. I have never NOT had a comment wearing a curlypops brooch...I love them.
Thanks goodness Liesa is selling these two great artists work in Handmade Heaven.

thanks Miriam, I'm so glad you like ( :
I actually have all those three items you purchased in my stash too.
I have a brown and green floral note book holder, a pink and green curlypops glasses holder that I bought last week and the heart was one of my first brooches I ever bought from Curly her stuff.
What great taste you have Jay xx

Hi Miriam. Guess who had a visit from the postman today? Thank you so much for my bag of goodies. I see a lovely button necklace for myself, maybe some yoyo brooches, the crochet doiley (spelling??) is going to enhance a cake stand with crochet cup cakes in shop window...
Oh so many possibilties, I love it.

Awwww thanks Miriam! The fabric I used on that sunnies case is the same one that I have stretched over a canvas on my loungeroom wall. I absolutely love it - it was a vintage bedspread that I found in mint condition.
Thanks so much for your support.
