Last year my cousin asked me to make her a runner for a table her hubby made her. When asked about style, colour etc her response was "surprise me". How scary is that. It was the first time I had been to her home so had a quick look around to try to absorb her style.
Just before Christmas I sent her pics of the finished top and she was thrilled. She said I had got her colours just right. (Phew!!!!!)
RC472007035HKDress up night at Scouts tonight. They weren't keen for Halloween costumes so we have a Ninja and a pirate. The pirate cape was a rushed sewing job this afternoon. Now the Ninja would like a cape too.
Some of the reupholstering projects I have worked on lately. The child's armchair and the footstools have sold in our Eclect.chic store. The dolls Cradle has a mattress and pillow as well as the reversible quilt.
I have also been using some of our small vintage doileys to make needlebooks. The top shows a closed needlebook, and at the bottom is one which is opened up. They are quick to make and look so sweet. I will be hunting out some more small doileys so as to make more of these.
It is Back to School day for these two gorgeous boys - off to their new school only 5 mins away instead of the 35 minutes of last year. Have a wonderful year Kai and Charlie. You look awesome in your new uniforms.
They are in the same classroom this year, a Year 2er and a Year 3er. They are growing up so quickly. The school is brand new and small at this stage, in a beautiful setting on the outskirts of town. Below is the whole school as enrolled on day 1.
Grandie No 6 started pre prep today. These little ones grow up so quickly. Enjoy, Harry.
Grandie no 5, Sammy will be starting school in Year 1 tomorrow at his new school back in Sydney.
Faeries in my Garden start their much awaited for sale on Australia Day and continue it for a week. On arrival the bolts of fabric sat invitingly waiting for the keen customers to come and claim them. Within an hour those tables were looking very depleted.
It is such a beautiful shop, well worth checking out if you are visiting the Brisbane area.
