A few quick things...


The winner from my little applique giveaway is number 6 and that is Eva. Minnie picked the number from a list but also love the tip. My mother is a brilliant sewer but sometimes drives me crazy when she finds it hard to deviate from a pattern. She could sew anything but really loves a pattern! Eva, please send me your details via email and I will send your little applique pack. Would love to see what you make!

I have closed my Etsy shop for a month or so as we are buying a house! We are still in the initial stages but we are so excited and want it now! But as many of your know buying a house and moving is a big job. Managing a husband that works overseas a bit and a crazy 2 year old while focusing on lawyers, banks, builders, fencers, removalists, and estate agents! Goodness... Plus the cat is still neurotic. I could go on but I would start sounding like the cat.

The house is wonderful. Its old (hence the builders), sits on hill, has sweeping verandas, views to the distant ocean and lakes, lovely garden with citrus trees and herbs and loads of potential. We are currently in a brand new place but we cannot wait to get into this place that is full of character. However, still a long way to go... Fingers crossed. I will show more photo's once it really is ours.

The last part of the tutorial is on its way, please be patient. I am just being pulled in 10 directions at once.

But its all so much fun!
