Another Patchwork

This is the little patchwork I was working on during my travels through Portugal recently.

 There are other things new to the Gift Shop, the stand and jug I bought at the fair in Fuengirola, the bowl of pot pourri is a wooden bowl I painted and filled with real pot pourri, chopped very small and glued in.
A gift box I made with a roll of matching gift wrap.

Lastly, along with other junk in my workroom I have a lot of coloured pens without tops! The pens were very cheap and I cut off the ends of the lids to make these summery drinking glasses!
I hope you're all having a good weekend,
