Yey, my quilt is all done!!! I finished it on Wednesday night, but have only just got round to blogging about it. I worked on it Friday night, Saturday, Tuesday and finished it Wednesday and I am so proud of it, I have always wanted a quilt and now I have one, yey!!!! I took a few piccies as it was progressing, want to see?…

Pinned together, ready for sewing wadding in..

The basting part was the most tedious part, but it is essential to quilting…

Sewing it…

Finished, yey!!!! I love it…

Most of the fabric I used were old sheets, quilting is fab for recycling!…

A closer look, so snuggly! …

Ok, some of my stitches are a bit wonky..

But hey, this is my first attempt at quilting….

Phew!! Time for a cuppa me thinks!!!

Today I bought this gorgeous skirt. I never wear skirts, I’m a jeans girl, but for a long time now I have been wanting to wear a skirt, and I saw this and I just had to have it. I wanted a 1950′s looking skirt, this is pretty 1950′s dont you think? Anyway, I love it, I just hope I feel comfortable wearing it. Speaking of the 1950′s, I have been doing loads of research online about 1950′s housewives, 1950′s home decor, 1950′s dress style, hair and make up. I found quite a few interesting articles and some fab piccies, but I was wanting to know, do any of you ladies know of any really good 1950′s websites, where I can get loads of info from? Also, I am wanting to decorate our home in a 1950′s type style, any suggestions on how I can acheive this? I have bought this book, I’m just waiting for it to be delivered, I’m sure I’ll get some good ideas from this. Here are some piccies from the book herehere and here. That is the kind of 1950′s decor that I love, any idea’s how I can achieve this look? Also, any idea’s on how I can achieve the 1950′s look, my dress, hair and make up? And still on about the 1950′s, can you think of any good films and tv shows that were made in the 1950′s, and ones that are set in the 1950′s? Obviously, top of my list is The Darling Buds Of May, can you think of any others? And books, books set in the 1950′s? Sorry for asking so many questions, lol. :)

I am going to attempt sewing a 1950′s style pinny now, then continue crocheting the blanket for my Mother In Laws Mothers Day pressie, and of course, watch The Darling Buds Of May.

Have a lovely weekend girls, I’m happily listening to Dreamcoats and Petticoats while typing this.:)
