Seeing double

Ahem. Linda came back from Hitchin today with a flea market purchase.
Mary with sacred heart.....
......oh, now it's Jesus.
A fabulous 'lenticular' double image picture in home made mosaic frame. Lordy, Lordy, Linda's divine bargain buy will have to remain at Jolie for the forseeable future.

Sew special

Kathleen, who follows our blog from Spain, sent us this picture of her beautiful prizewinning quilt exhibited at The Sitges Quilt Show in Spain. Pictured here with her daughter Helen, Kathleen only discovered she had won second prize in the traditional category when she visited the exhibition with her two daughters. The quilt took five years to make and is a stunning work of art. Well worthy of a prize we think.

Ooh, a fox terrier (aka Teddy) and a Jolie lamb, both Steiff 'Button in Ear' have come to live at Jolie.

Ann's cushion

Ann brought in her pretty crochet cushion all finished today. She is now working on an equally lovely crochet blanket.

Postcard from Hellie

Sent from Hellie over in Paris. Apparently 'Robbie has finally got the hang of it'. Wonderful.

Hopping mad

Aaaah, a new delivery of woodland rabbits. These bunny night lights are so cute and really effective in the dark, creating a cosy glow. A lovely Easter gift too (£6.95 each).
Oops, ended up in the haberdashery cupboard with the toadstool night light (£4.95).
