Reversible Skirt



Just a wee skirt I whipped up for my little princess.  It's been a while... infact I made 2.  One for her little friend as well.  I feel a tutorial coming on!

My Creative Space: Fabric and Do Up.



These are the beautiful fabrics I bought from Lindy at her beautiful new shop 'Stitchbird'.  It was so lovely to finally meet you.  Sorry we didn't come and see you at the market's the next day but we were a bit worse for wear and plus what horrible stormy weather that day had.

If you are ever in Wellington I recommend dropping buy.  Lindy is ever so lovely and ohh what to choose from.  I could of bought the whole shop!

The 2 on the right are destined for cushions but at the moment they are sitting with my forever growing pile of cushion fabric.  The first one I think I will save for a dress in Summer for my youngest girl, so I have a few months up my sleeve to make that one!



Now what I am really working on, is these old drawers which are stored in the garage.  I have almost finished painting them but now realise I want them to be much darker.  I will have them finished by the weekend and reveal all there glory.  I hope they will look good for what I want to use them for but I will leave that as a surprise!

Here's to all the other creative spaces out there!


The Things they Say!

The phone rings.  I am down the other end of the house.  My 6 year old answers.


Hello, who's speaking please?


No he's not here at the moment.


Meanwhile I am screaming at her to give me the phone.  Emma totally ignoring me and then I heard her say (obviously he asked if she could take a message)


Oh no,  I can't do that.... because I am a  CHILD  and then hangs up the phone.




Who knows what he thought,  probably thought here is a child home alone looking after herself!
