bobbies bob up

Wow it's hard to find the time to make stuff and then photograph it and then get it online, amongst all the feeding and cuddling and face pulling. I have a new admiration for all you wahm's! Anyhow, these bobbies and some other goodies are winging their way to my awesome and talented friend Laura's little gallery in Mitchell, Queensland. Worth a look if you're out that way.

baby Roy

This is why I've been so quiet recently - but it's not so quiet around here! Baby Roy is now 7 weeks old and we're so lucky that he's arrived safely and so gorgeous! So this blog will still be quiet for a while...

Vinyl plurbit - pattern from the Softies book. Although the 130% pattern enlargement consisted of me drawing it freehand which is why she might be a little asymmetrical - don't blame the pattern. Quick to whip up, especially because you can machine sew the opening closed - but the vinyl made it a bit hard to stuff the little legs and arms. The pattern recommends felt. Great for using up little bits and pieces from the stash. I made three.

A friend gave me her fabric stash, as in her entire lifetime's worth of collected fabrics. She said she's realised she's moved on from sewing, she's much more into printmaking and etching and so forth. So 15 boxes of fabric later, much of it linen and silk and other lovely stuff, I found this simple patchwork piece... So I made it into a tote bag and gave it back to her.

Last weekend we caught the train down to Spring Bluff. As far as local tourist attractions go, it's not bad. We saw lovely flowers, a big band and an elderly gent dancing along. We ate ice creams, and cake, and sat on the grass in the shade - a fine Sunday afternoon indeed. And we saw the mayor working the crowd, shaking hands and such. He's very tall. He doesn't look that tall on tv.
