Introducing Audrey

Happy February my friends! Can you even believe how fast January passed by..it seems we were just taking down Christmas lights!

Now that the new year has been well established, I thought it a good time to introduce you to my new studio assistant.  Any one that has visited here, for any length of time, knows all too well that I have grand(iose) plans and ideas that don't always come to fruition.  Miss Distraction stops by for a visit way to often..uninvited I might add, and shortly after that, all plans are lost.

The Mister set about to find a nice lady to keep me on the straight and narrow and after interviewing several prospects, decided on this nice, straight forward helper.



I am pleased to introduce to you, the lovely Audrey.  She has already been busy sorting and organizing the studio and has three boxes ready for donation.  I must say, "Is that the light at the end of the tunnel"?

In the future, you will be seeing more of Audrey and the projects that we will be doing together.


I wanted to share this thrift find from last week. 

  


A container of old thimbles at a good price of $2.00.  :)


And...look at this unusual one with a moving part.  I looked around the Internet and found that it is a thread cutter.  It looks to me like it might be something else also...Any guesses?

Have a lovely Monday.  xo

Well, isn't Audrey just lovely? I think she is quite comely.
That thimble thing? Not sure- does it have a measuring capability? Or is it a seam/stitch ripper? xo Diana

Audrey has good taste in her clothing. She looks like she's ready for Spring!
I can not think of any other use for your unusual thimble. I'm very curious now!!

And I LOVE your thimbles, it just reminds me of my grandmother who is a seamstress.

I adore the thimbles you found. What a great deal and I've never seen the thread cutter one before. Interesting! Audrey looks bright and cheerful and oh, so helpful.
