I have just found this site"Antique Pattern Library" that look very interesting what a lovely thing to do, share books that are not longer available with such nice patterns.And also this one "Casamia in Italia"love the free designs here.

Today I have done some sewing for the "hugs swap" the designs for this are sooo nice I have really enjoy myself stitching the mug hug , you still have time to join this, go and have a look the two girls who are runing this swap are so talented all their work is beautiful.

Miren lo que encontre en mis paseos por "cyber space". Casamia in Italia tienen un patrones de punto cruz, gratis hermosos y tambien un lugar donde hay libros antiguos,de bordado, crochet,etc,todos los libros son gratis para bajar "Antique Pattern Library".

Here they are in all their glory!!!
Love them , please don't forget any suggestion of what to do with them will be most welcome

Aqui estan los famosos botones, como pueden ver son unos cuantos!!!

The girls left yesterday , the house is so quiet,I spoke to them this morning and they are all happy to be home.

To keep me busy yesterday after I took them to the airport I went shopping,what a great time I had bought some lovely bits and pieces all toys for myself (LOL).

Some fabrics,there is not Quilting shops in here so all one can do is look for nice pure cotton fabrics, they do make up for the lack of fabrics with beautiful threads, silks, beads and the buttons!! fell in love with some mother of pearl ones, the only problem was that I did have to buy them all, (VG) I will have to find something to do with them, any suggestion will be most welcome.

Se acabaron las vacaciones para mi hija y nietas, regresaron ayer a Inglaterra,a mi aun me quedan 6 semanas aqui.
Ayer luego de ir a dejarlas , para pasar la pena me fui de compras.
Aqui no hay tiendas de quilting,asi que lo que se encuentra en telas es limitado, en cambio hilos, cintas, botones hay muchos y lindos, me enamore de unos de nacar, el problema fue que o los compraba todos o nada , los compre !!!! ahora a pensar que hago con ellos.

What a lovely day we have had, went swimming with Hannah and after that we hit the town, bought some lovely things for the girls and a very nice little black dress for myself .VG
came back home tired but happy, I should really be in bed is quite late here, but the blog bug is hit me and I am trying to learn a little more about it every day.
This is one of the loveliest BOM patterns, I have found on my "walks " in ciber space, and now Vicki from Tozz's corner has created her first comercial pattern (is beautiful) and is offering the chance to win one, I think you should all go and check it !!!
