Recent Makes

Hi there lovely ones,

Hope you are all well. Im good. Im cold but Im good. Ive been a bit quiet recently sorry, as we ran out of internet data and Ive also been busy with mothering a toddler and sending off the very last issues of Hundreds and Thousands magazine. We have sold out of our issue one and its quite unbelievable.

Anyway, Im here now, and I thought Id share with you some of the things ive been making recently. Some for gifts, some for me, some to eat and some for my next market stall at The Fitzroy Market the 17th may.

I made myself a new dress out of one of my most favourite pieces of vintage opshopped fabric I own!

Ive started to crochet tea cosys to sell.

I made myself a pair of easter knickers inspired by Mezz's handmade undies

I crochet these fingerless gloves for my richmond mad nephew for his birthday.

Framed a much loved piece of fabric I bought in Japan, keeping it on display rather than hidden.

Making and eating The Whole Pantry chocolate mousse fudge tart

I was given the fab book Home, by Beci Orpin, and inside was a tutorial on how to paint your own plates. These are some of what my hubby (spot his!!) and myself have done. Its quite addictive.

You can never have enough bunting, so a new one is hanging on our lounge wall. Spot the picture frame..its from our latest issue of Hundreds and Thousands magazine!!

So as you can see Ive been busy, so hopefully that's a good enough reason for my silence. I do have a few more blog posts lined up, so I will be back soon, I promise!

Would love to hear from you..
