Close up detail of Nana bag.

Blue lobster tea dress with navy & white back....size 8yrs -10yrs girls. In my shop as well can you believe it!

Thought I'd throw this photo in as I love it & feel the colours & light capture the essence of Australian summer. A gorgeous friend & terrific photographer Lisa Haymes snapped these sean-the-prawn dresses & hat out on the balcony outside Mooch Inside.
School starts back tomorrow after 6 weeks summer holidays. We have had lots of fun as a family, spending much time at the local beach with both of the kids mastering boogie boarding on the waves... even my little 3yr old daughter, loving it. I'm looking forward to getting out the sewing machine & really focusing on sean-the-prawn this year. Hmmm I hate to say it but i feel some sort of routine might be called for this year if I'm ever going to get productive....maybe I should do some exercise too.

get this blogging year off & running

Rosella cushion from all upcycled vintage bed linen & tablecloth.

Hi Everyone, Happy 2011!!
I believe it is going to be a great year for all of us, although we are not off to a great start here in Australia. A large percentage of our country has been flooded & my thoughts are with the thousands of people who's homes & businesses have been destroyed, but my heart goes out to the poor people who have lost the lives of their family & friends.
Yes, I have had a very slow start to the blogging year. It has been a super busy time, what with going away to Albury for Christmas to spend time with my husband's family & with my beautiful children being on six weeks school summer holidays. It has been great catching up with family & friends, with more friends arriving in town this friday. Blogging & making has been very much on the back burner but, Hey, it is now time to get serious!! I have been reading your postings & have really been loving seeing all your creations & hearing what you been up to.
Before I went away for for Christmas I had a mega sewing fest for a couple of days with my machine working overtime getting a few items together to go into MoochInside over the holiday period. Check out my work in the soft focus photos...really must check that the lense on my iphone is grime free before I point & shoot. Just imagine a world through cataract eyes.

Sweet as... little girls carry bags from Japanese craft fabric, boutique screen printed fabric & yellow linen gingham with red hand stitching. Fully lined with calico & calico straps with red gingham trim.
