mum......your bag!

my mum ( hi ma )wanted a bag that she could use for day & night. does this qualify?
the outer is the last piece left from "the tea towel"

and purses.......

what a fabric find! i recently bought a 13 pack of tea towels & this was one of them. i thought it was far to gorgous to dry my dishes with. so instead it became 4 lil zip purses. 2 have red corduroy lining ( i have already given away ) another with green & this one with my nanas new vintage pillow case.

YES! my craft is kind of random, but thats what keeps my creative life interesting....i am always making something!

cushions are coming

aubergine curtains

today my studio is filled with 15mtrs of aubergine cotton drill fabric. i am making curtains for MYSTIC TURTLE in mentone. i have redesigned their shop front, now the fun part sewing up curtains, actually i find it quite boring, straight stitching for about 100 metres in the same colour.
next we will be doing the window decals which is very stressful cos it only gets done once. the new paint colours i have chosen for the frontage are dulcet violet & army issue by dulux. so much fun............

a budding young artist at work

nina stopped us in our tracks to look at the glowing red DALI. it is underneath one of the walkways, amazing how kids seem to see everything. we sat there for ages looking through the holes in the mesh floor.

nina v's salvador dali

today we had a fabulous day at the NGV (national gallery of victoria) they have had a kids program running for the last couple of weeks where the lil ones can get involved & experiment with SALVADOR DALI style of artistry. today nina took on the challenge and did a still life picture in pencil of a grasshopper. nonna & i were super impressed!!! photos of the day still to come. (i left mine at home. have to wait til the happy snaps get passed onto me)

her signed art work!!!!

this is the first time i have ever seen her write her name without any instruction, we got an i & a n - not bad for a 3 yr old. if you get the chance take your kidikins to play & explore the kids space at the gallery, heaps of fun & its free.

(thanks nonna for a fab day x)

harlequin skirt

nina loves her new pure wool harlequin skirt. the last one shrank in the wash- i'm too lazy to hand wash. the fabric was a fab find at a warehouse clearance sale & lucky me bought the whole 10 metres. so there will more coming soon!!!

orange crush

this is my new lamp with its shade, its not the original fabric i chose, which as it turned out the pattern ran the wrong way, so i HAd to buy new fabric - what a pity. so the original linen bird print is to be a cushion. i must admit i have a bit of an orange crush thing goin on at the moment. my home decor used to be greens now it all seems to be reds & oranges. in the world of chakra therapy- this would say that instead of being in tune with my heart (green) i am now more into the base & sacral chakras of reds & oranges. which would suggest that i am needing be grounded!
