sew crazy

I borrowed my sister's sewing machine (thanks sis!) and have been busting to get back into some sewing - something I haven't done since I was in uni. I thought I'd start with some easy projects, so I sewed up a couple of bibs for some friends who have recently had a gorgeous bubba. We're meeting her for the first time on Saturday and I can't wait for cuddles! But after I'd sewn up her bibs, I just couldn't stop, so I did a few more... and now I'm scouring Etsy for cute japanese fabrics to make more... I think this could be the start of an addiction happening! I just have to attach some snaps and they are done. I think I might even get adventurous and try adding some bias binding around the edges now that I have my sewing confidence back. SEW much fun hehe! Oh and if you'd like the pattern I found it at Chickpea Sewing Studio here.

Hi all! Just a quick post today to share some more happy news - my lovely agent has featured me in the latest edition of Progressive Greetings magazine - yippee!

Wheee - happy news! I've just sold my first three designs through my wonderful agent in the UK! My Rainbow Bunnies, Garden Club and Rainy Day designs have found a home (though I'm not sure where yet) - hooray! Think I'll celebrate with a hot chocolate :) Hope you are all having a fabulous evening.

out my window

Here's what yesterday morning looked like - in fact every morning this week! Cloud covering the top of the ridge and the autumn colours are starting to put on a bit of a show.

Here's what it looks like in spring - green and lush and lots of pretty flowers.

Happy weekend! Do you have anything nice planned? I'm looking forward to a lovely lunch at my dad's place today - my little brother is a very talented cook and he's cooking us up a yummy Indonesian feast, can't wait! Thought I'd share a little piece of my place with you all today. This is the view out my lounge room window... we are so lucky, I still feel like I'm on holiday when I have the time to sit with a nice cuppa and gaze out :) Enjoy your weekends everyone!

what's cookin?

Hello! How is your week shaping up? I hope you are having a good one :) Wow it's been so chilly here this week. Autumn has finally decided to arrive properly! Up here in the hills it's been magical with mist and low clouds hanging round all day and the rain dripping off the beautifully coloured autumn foliage. I love it! Anyway I thought I'd share my new Super Food Ideas illo with you today... an article about pressure cookers vs. slow cookers. Have a lovely Thursday!

new pillow covers

Gooooood morning! Wow where is this week going already? Wednesday? Where did Monday and Tuesday go?! Just a little note to let you all know I have two new pillow cover designs available for purchase in my envelop store. You can visit my store here. It's such good fun designing stuff for textile products, something a bit different to anything I've done before. A big thanks to any of you who have made purchases in my envelop store already, you are fantastic!

feelin festive

Happy Monday - I hope you all had fab weekends! Last week I was lucky enough to have a lot of time to myself, so I got some folio work done - yay! Here are a couple of Christmas patterns... yeah it's a strange time of year to be thinking about Christmas, but I thought my folio was lacking Christmassy content! I hope your Monday is going great :)
