Yesterday I also planted some snakebeans, cooked a silverbeet dish that was actually tasty (lots of spices) and cleaned out my second drawer down (''cause not everything was fitting in there any more -any Tripod fans out there?) The weirdest thing I found in there was a "Good morning" stamp for your toast. With a forcibly cheery sun on it. I think if that toast came at me too early it could just put me in a bad mood for the rest of the day. Not saying I'm not a morning person, I'm just more human once I've had a cup of tea and some quiet time.
Enough rambling. Before I tell the story of that awful trip to the Falls Festival where Tripod were almost the only good thing, go check out edward and lilly's Saturday shopping list. edward and lilly make fabulous things, like this chic boots zipper pouch - speaking of boots - and one of my velvet cuffs was lucky enough to feature in this Saturday's shopping list.

Softies book 1. I only just restrained myself from buying book 2 when I spotted it the other day, on the grounds that I've only made two softies from book one. But they're so cute and adorable! Sensible vs cute. My sensible side won, that day. But not today. I ignored the pile of dirty dishes and the floor that needs mopping - how cute are these bugs? My mum said "what's that, a fish?", I said "no it's got legs" but she still didn't get to beetle. I think maybe they should have six legs? That would be more of a clue...

And, a big shout out to Chrisy of sophism press who featured one of my brooches in a recent post on garment reuse/upcycling (alchemy?) crafting. I got a kick out of being mentioned alongside Lori Marsha and Gary Harvey.
