It's Being A Good Day So Far ...

Hello my dear friends,

so far today is a good day and I hope it will last all day.
Why, is it a good day. Well even though it is yet again raining, things are good!

My fabric dyeing attempts have turned out to be successful!

The colors of the old linen and seam binding match very nicely, better than I had hoped really.
I have a little picture in my head of what I am going to do with them.

My lily of the valley is blooming so beautifully this year in our garden and there are so much more of it this time which makes me very happy. I do love nature so much!

I took this photograph just after it had stopped raining earlier.

And last but not least ...

... the mailman was here!

He brought me the the first one of two parcels I was waiting for ...

... and I am so buzzed with what it inside it! ~ Just take a look! ...

... Lovely old pocket watch casings!

Oh, how I love old pieces like this ~ I just can't seem to get enough of them!

Some of them are going to become one of my favorite things that I just love to create. 
That is the reason why I needed the seam binding and linen in shades of blue. I am sure that a few of you already know what I am going to be making in the next few days.

 So whenever you have a few spare moments, stop by and visit me here at Todolwen and see what I have been up too.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a  peaceful and creative day.

  6. Pocket watch casing - I had no idea that they were even still available. I know you will do wonders with these and I can't wait to see how the blue pretties you dyed will feature in your new creations.
