Cottage Journal - Simple pleasures

I don't know about anyone else but a box of $2 crayons always makes me happy.

The sachets were shop brought but homemade decorations were added. I used colouring pencils and brushed over the top with fabric medium to help set the coloured pencils.

I've always enjoyed creating cards, it's such a simple activity or it can be as complicated as you like with scraps of paper and such. I made some watercolour cards with inspiring quotes and a touch of ribbon. I think I'd like to make some more eventually.

We've had on and off rain. Good weather for curried apricot chicken. And working on my crazy quilt. I ended up re-patching this section, cutting out long strips of fabric and adding in smaller pieces.  I hand appliquéd the smaller pieces in.

I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.


  1. Shiralee your sachets look great. Isn't the cooler weather nice? Can't say the same about the weeds growing though :-)

  2. Hi Shiralee,that Curry looks so yummy 🍜. Your crazy quilt is amazingly beautiful with all the hand stitches you have added. I hope your having a great week. Pat
