Mexican Stand Off ?

My sister tells me I'm having a Mexican stand off with my blog. Or maybe I told her I was having a Mexican stand off with my blog. Anyway, she wants my blogging to return pronto! Here is my pronto.

Here is a beautiful felted bag that I recently bought from a very talented customer. It is made from Noro Kureyon yarn and lined in a gorgeous lilac Liberty. It has a fabulous purple vintage button and I love it, a whole lot! I will attempt to take a photo that does it a whole lot more justice - it really is gorgeous.

Ages ago I mentioned the Oliver + S dress that I made for the shop . I made it in Liberty - Betsy in fact. This gorgeous fabric teamed with this really sweet, sweet pattern makes a real cute dress. If you do make any of these patterns be sure to check out their errata page before you start anything

So, there, stand off over. Now to bed. Boys all went to Sydney today, baby in bed with tonsillitis. Poor baby.

Hexagons, Parties, Anything....

This boy is holding up only 5 fingers, but he actually turned 8 this week. Yo, yo, bling, bling!

This is the little visitor we had this past week. I think they are butterfly watching. Cute.

This is what's up on my design wall at the moment. Big hexagons with lots of Garden Party by Anna Maria Horner and some Kaffe and a fair bit of Kei red honeycomb.

My latest love. I spotted something similar on a gorgeous Japanese girl in the shop a few months back. I couldn't stop looking at the beautiful creation that her mother in Japan - who owns a quilt shop - had made for her. She had her Mum make me one too. I love it. All vintage feedsack fabrics. Can you see the fabric that Denise Schmidt must have got her inspiration from?
