Those bad, bad bunnies. These two are in time out, please don't pay attention to them, they'll just get worse. They wouldn't co-operate for the face painting session. As for pink bunny, she had a nasty accident and I'm afraid she didn't survive but it's ok because she was a donor bunny and her limbs were saved for a transplant.
Maybe if they behave (and I don't have another craft fail), I can let them pose for you at a later time.

Pattern is in the latest Homespun magazine, No.82 vol 11.3 See them sitting on the chair on the bottom left of the cover.
I did say Mr Q and I went on a day trip, to Berrima down the south coast. I love visiting one of the old antique shops there. The owner buys container loads of goods from mostly England and sells a lot for props in movies. I do happen to know that the fur coats in the Narnia movies came from here. I'm sorry I can't remember the name of the store but I took lots of photos to share.
Edit: I just found the name, its Peppergreen Antiques.
It seemed like everything they had, there was a lot of it. Buttons not only in containers but drawers and big plastic bins of them. I loved the scissors and cringed at the antique irons used in olden times.
Lots of French bakeware, containers filled with rolling pins, antique fishing reels and rods, cut throat razors. You name it, they probably had it.
And this collage is for the klosje enthusaists.
A whole wall of antique and vintage quilts and eiderdowns. These would be classified in the cutter category but I believe the owner has her own special collection. A lot were from the 30's to 60's I'm guessing.
A whole room was dedicated to textiles, linens and clothing. I just loved these vintage cloths.
From the patchwork shop, I picked up some bling for zippers.
We went to a Patisserie where we had coffe and bought these hot cross brioche, no spice but delicious cut and toasted on one side with lashings of butter. I'll be making my own spice ones this week.
I did do some other sewing in the weekend but it's getting washed and dried so next time I'll show and tell.
