Dreamcatcher Lane

Wed 3rd or Wed 10th of July your kids can take a trip with me down Dreamcatcher Lane as I present a Sew & Sews creative workshop for ages 7-14yrs in which they can design & create their very own Dreamcatcher to take home.
Take a look at the beautiful Dreamcatcher inspiration that follows.

Exciting times on the horizon

I've started a new business venture named Sew & Sews! I'll be teaching sewing & crafting from my home studio. I'm launching this enterprise by running school holiday creative workshops for kids aged 7-14yrs.
Eventually I plan to be teaching sewing to small groups during after school hours. I've been thinking about this for a long time now & after visiting the Sydney Quilt & Craft Show last weekend I came home bursting with ideas & renewed energy which was all I needed to ignore the fear of failure & dive right on in.
I've started a new blog for Sew & Sews which you may like to check out from time to time.

Winter gold

It is so hard to believe that it is winter when this is the view outside my front door. Every June our wattle tree blooms with the most iridescent golden little balls of fluff. Looking at it puts an instant smile on my dial, the bees love it too buzzing like crazy collecting all that nectar.

I had a busy week putting together a whole new collection of cushions.I'm loving all the combinations in such vibrant colours, also some cosy woollen plaids with super cute birds.
I'll be revamping my Etsy shop soon so keep checking for new stock.

We just had a three day weekend here in Australia for the Queens Birthday, it isn't the Queen's actual birthday but hey who's to complain when there is a holiday on offer. The family & I went on a rather lightning trip up to Forster for a couple of days. It was great to get away even though we probably spent as much time travelling there & back as we did at our destination. The weather was warm & sunny, the water the most stunning aqua colour & we even jumped in the rather icy ocean. Very nice.
