A few days away

I returned on Thursday from a lovely few days visiting friends who live in Bright.  The weather was stunning and it was lovely to catch up with special friends.  I especially enjoyed walking around their garden and was inspired to do some work at my place.  Here are just a couple of the myriad photos I took.


This last photo is one I took when I decided to take drive to Mount Hotham.  Unfortunately there was quite a lot of cloud cover which meant I was unable to get any decent shots from the summit....it was also about 20 degrees colder than Bright...and there a small amount of snow still on the ground.

Apologies to readers

Hi all, My apologies to anyone who has tried to look at my blog in the past week or so...it seems I may have had a bug....I had a widget/gadget thingy on my side bar and it seems that whenever I tried to look at my blog, this other thing popped up....it wasn't until I managed to get into my settings and remove the offending thing that I can now read my blog...so hopefully you can too..Sorry for my ramblings!!! 

I have been busy with lots of things.  One piece of news is that I am hoping to set up my own Etsy shop in the next little while so stay tuned for news about this.   I am really excited about this new development in my life.  
I am also going to have a small market stall next month and I have been busy making things for that.  Here is a little sneak peak of what I am going to be selling on my Etsy shop...until next time.....Lisa

Indigo

On Saturday I attended an Indigo Dyeing workshop at Kraftkolour....a supplier here in Melbourne of all things related to fabric dyeing.  Because I love anything blue and white, I bought some indigo supplies earlier in the year and had a go at indigo dyeing myself.  It was such fun yesterday to get together with others to share the experience.  It was like opening presents each time we withdrew the fabric out of the dye vats and opened them up to see what results our folding, tying and pressing came out like.
Here are a few of my favourites.

New things around the house


I have been changing things around the house in recent weeks.....trying to throw out some surplus things, minimize and rearrange.  I have bought a new chair....which my cats have been enjoying and also rearranged a few things in the lounge room.


I am really loving this little vignette and minor minimizing

More Sewing!!!

I have had a productive couple of days making a couple of things for a friend....the first a sewing bag and one of my favourites to make, the pear pincushion....I am also really loving the colour combinations.  Just a shame that my "stitching" is a bit on the wonky side.

Makings

My niece and nephew came for a sleepover last weekend and whilst Tom was playing "Minecraft" Kate and I set to work on choosing some fabric and making this....Kate did most of the sewing, with me giving a guiding hand...she did a great job!
