I am slowly getting some goodies into my Christmas box stash. Remember these ?? Well they have now been transformed into

these.... they are jewellery pouches

This is what they look like inside, there are 8 little pockets to put jewellery into. I have been using one for years which I keep in my hand bag. I think I will shout myself a new one along with friends for Christmas.

I have made 5 and think I will be making a few more.

My Tuesday treasure today is to share the photos I took of Her Majesty yesterday.

The Queen visited our beautiful city yesterday, I work at the Riverside Centre in Brisbane CBD, for those of you who don't know the building is actually "riverside", I walked down to the Riverside Centre City Cat Terminal waiting for Her Majesty to arrive AND she was late, late late, there were lots of people along the board walk. This is not the first time I have seen the Queen in our city but I am sure it will be the last. They brought the boat so close to the boardwalk, we all had a lovely view of her.

The Queen is on the top deck wearing the green outfit.

..... and then she was gone, thankyou Queen Elizabeth for visiting and making a memorable day for us.
Pop on over to Mel's and see who else is sharing treasures today.

Here they are....

Some lovely wine themed fabrics

Co-ordinated spots and flowers in pinks and blues

Red themed with flowers

Roses themed fabrics, just cannot have enough roses fabrics :-)

Lovely Paris

This one is a panel for a Christmas tree skirt and some baubles for the Christmas tree

So this concludes my fabric buying for a loooooong time.

Today I would like to show you this cushion cover I made several years ago, well I should say started several years ago and finished 3 years ago, it is all hand pieced with individual embroidered faces. I love it and am very happy how it turned out BUT it will be a one of, it was very time consuming.

I've been very bad and shopping at the Fat Quarter Shop again, I can't help myself when I look in the sale section. This LARGE box arrived this morning.
AND this is what was inside, all these packages

This is material for quilt top and pattern with a finished size of 63" by 63".

These are the materials, I particularly like the piece with the house for the centre of the quilt.

I purchased this piece for the back of the quilt pack I purchased.

AND then they sent me a good customer voucher for 20% off the next purchase BUT it had to be used within a week of this purchase, what was I to do. I know I should have stopped I have so many materials at home and I really don't know where they will go. So many things were going through my mind, plus I hate to miss out on a 20% discount, and then...... my addictive personality took over and there I was buying more and more fabric which will be arriving next week. Wait for the next installment of fabrics next week..... LOL

Dawn from As Sweet As Cinnamon is having a fun contest, pop on over and read all about it.

My BLOG name is very simple really, all my friends call me "Crafty", when I started my BLOG I had no idea what to name it and then it came to me - Crafty Kaylee seems to rhyme (doesn't it?), so I just changed the "C" to a "K" and there it is - "KRAFTY KAYLEE".
