28 March 2011


Well it has been some time, 22 days in fact. I took a little unplanned break from the wonderful blog land and have discovered this may be the first of many to come. You see, we are about to embark on the huge task of building a house- owner builder style. It has been 3 years of planning and we are now getting down to the business end of things which requires a big level of commitment on our part. I've decided that rather than drive myself crazy trying to keep up with all the things I love to dabble in, I have to except that there is only one of me and I can only do what I can do! I'll still be creating things along the way and working towards ticking off my Twenty Elevens, only at a more leisurely pace.
There's nothing like a spot of fabric shopping to get you back into the swing of things and that's exactly what I have just done. I was rummaging through a fabric store and to my surprise I stumbled across a roll of this beautiful Black & White Step by Step fabric. I originally purchased this fabric online and could only get hold of 3 fat quarters at the time, imagine my delight when I came to the realisation that I could buy more and at about the quarter of the price. Oh how I love a bargain and how such a little surprise can make my day!

Crafty Creations: Cushion for Max

Cushions, Cushions, Cushions.... I'm cushion crazy again at the moment, I've got a great little production line of cushions happening and on my way to building a good sample stock pile. In amongst all this cushion craziness, I have been commissioned by my gorgeous and ever so supportive husband to make a special cushion for his work buddy's new bubs, Max or shall I say 'Pepsi Max' as he calls him. Not only did he put in a special request, he accompanied me to choose all the fabric and put his 2 bobs worth in on the design. I never imagined that I would ever get to collaborate on a creative project with my husband, but it appears life is full of surprises - even if it was just a teeny little project for a tiny little tot!

Ohh so traditional boyish, primary colours & flying machines
