I made this pinafore from a ladies linen shirt and I took it to Brisbane when the Botanique sale was on ….. Ula spotted it when we were unpacking she decide then and there that it would be her’s I had to make a couple of adjustments and must admit it looks great on her slim square frame.I have been playing with the new camera on my phone….. very funky arty shots
Well a year has flown by and I am in a quandary over the Etsy dilemma…. so I have tried to produce an item that I can reproduce easily and not have to keep updating with new photos etc… etc …. anyone with an Etsy store will now what I am talking about. So this is my start in that direction hand made silk string ( taught to me by India Flint) with aged pegs with the help of Lisa Jordan to ……”peg up your dreams and affirmations ” PS they are now in store
I love my birthday surprises some are great and some not so but as a Mother you do have to be excited. One may have dropped one hundred hints but you cannot make them buy what you want…. I have come to terms with that over the years and I can tell you I have had some doosies…. So this year with a child on each side in bed these are my surprises ! Have I told you all how much I love Copper !
The Tawny Frogmouth was returned and has fledged after a couple of hick ups…. We had to home him our Chicken pen during the day as he was being pestered by Magpies, had his Mother feed him enough? so it was a scramble to find a moth of similar and of course carry it to the pen, It was used to the human hand but Mum turned up every night and then he was gone ….
The Open Studio Trail in the Scenic Rim Shire kicks off May /June 2014 I have gone out on my own this year … with my lovely neighbour Nik she is in my blog roll ( Nicole Crosswell ) we will blitz Beechmont with our creativity at the Beechmont Community Centre. For those who wish to have a play I will run a simple introduction to Bundle Dying , and will have the big pot onsite both days .
I have a Christmas Bazaar coming up at The Botanic Gardens in Brisbane, I just need to label and deliver and pay a % to the organizer, I do this with my stock at Binna Burra too. The Gig is the Botanique Christmas Bazaar at the Botanic Gardens (21st November to 24th November) This is leading me to the silk/lycra mix with its sheen and lovely feel I have made two gilets with big arm holes easy to wear over t-shirts or similar. I wanted to try a shibori style but I am a bit of a random soul so I do actually find this a bit challenging! But with my trusty bits of copper I have succeeded ! the other silk has a lurex thread through it but has been bundled in my regular fashion.
