I hope you had a beautiful weekend with your lovely ones around you. I spent the entire weekend home trying to get well with my lovely ones coming and going. While I was in rest mode ( which doesn't happen very often) I had a little crafty fun. Ohh its so good to be makin. Want to see?
An old t-shirt that I left wet in the laundry basket was found moldy all over the front but this t-shirt was a comfy one & I didn't want to throw yet another laundry disaster away so I sewed a piece of fabric over the top of the mold and had some drawing fun with the sewing machine.
This was so fun and so easy I'll be playing around with this again soon for sure. Once I had the fabric scraps drawer open I started playing with making a little picture. I don't know what this will be maybe a wall hanging, I might add some writing, or it could get left in the come back-to pile. While I was fiddling with the fabric and arranging pieces here and there my 5yo asked for one just the same except no pink and a little bird added so I'll be making one of these again soon, its his birthday in 9 days perhaps a birthday present?
And two favourite things right now- a dress for little Bluebell from Lazy Bones in Bangalow (its a good thing its 2 hours away-the vintage quilts are delicous and though I can resist every 6 months when I visit if I saw it over & over well I'm sure I'd grow weak and convince myself one of us needs a quilt just like that) and this cushion with hand painted flowers. Pretty hey?
Oh and I finally got around to changing the banner-the days are cooling down, the skys are blue with breezes blowing, lorikeets visiting and afternoons spent outside reading, crafting, tea-drinking and biscuit dunking. I love Autumn. Warm, yet soft and breezy.
This week I'm going to be posting a bit on our project learning and some wonderful things I'm learning from Lori's blog at Camp Creek. If you drop in please say hi I'd love to meet you!
