On my desk

To use a phrase coined by Argy and/or Bargy of Hoppo Bumpo fame my desk is showing the progress of my Bib-o-rama!

All bibs are now sewn together by machine and hand and ready for ironing, topstitching (eek!) and velcroing. It has taken me a bit longer than I thought it would.

I really love the 3 floral prints which are right next to the army men bib.

Also on my desk is a pretty cool Freecycle find, the first 39 issues of Golden Hands magazine. I have been intrigued about said magazines since reading this post by the lovely Thornberry in late May. To date I had not find any at my local oppies.

Yet the Golden Hands gods were smiling on me earlier in the week when I snaffled them via my friend Freecycle. The trip to collect was traumatic to say the least - reading the Melways has never been my forte - but very worth it. I have flicked through, there are some lovely sewing projects and importantly they are described in a great instructional style. Makes me think I need to take up knitting and crocheting to get the full benefit of them.

Do head over to Kirsty's blog to see who else might be playing along.

The bibs look fabulous....I love them all but I think the sweet little lions are my fave.

Yay, great find! Go freecycle. Although some of the Golden Hands projects are very much of their time, most are easily adaptable to today, and the instructions are great!

Argy and Bargy would approve! The bibs look fantastic. Good luck with the top stitching and have fun with those Golden Hands!
