What about the sewing?

When you have a family, sometimes you give so much that there is no time for the sewing.


Little Miss turns 7, and this is the Mermaid Venus de Milo.


I was at the $2 shop looking for a statue that ended up costing $6 (hahahaha), and looking at an entire wall of tiny statues... I said to lil man who is now 2 1/2, we need to find a mermaid, where is the mermaid, where are you mermaid? And out of the entire wall he picks up the only mermaid figurine.

I don't think he even knew what a mermaid was! But somehow, he has the intuition!

I used the wilton piping tips, butter icing, and sprinkled with hologrammatic edible glitter....

 Honestly, this turned out beautifully......

Here is the evidence that I created it myself...

And.... how did I know to make this a mermaid cake and not a unicorn? Because my little girl asked me for a mermaid quilt next time... ohhh yes! *fistpump*

Rainbow butterfly and rainbow mandala

Woohoo! I started this Very Hungry Caterpillar quilt in February 2012, and finally it's finished!
 

 Thank you Mum for quilting it on the longarm with rainbow multicolour caterpillars.


I gave this quilt away, because Mum had already given my 2 1/2 year old a quilt with this guy on, (caterpittar quilt Mummy).

This quilt has gone to Archie who turned 3 on the day it arrived in the mail.
 It's cold in Melbourne, so he will enjoy it.



And sometimes you start and finish something in one day.....
This gorgeous tote is perfect for rolling up and storing in the handbag. Especially now that Spotlight has stopped giving out plastic bags, and the supermarkets are lining up to do that too.

There are going to be lots of totes on here.

Mermaids and oracles

I am loving creating special bags to accompany different oracle card decks.

This bag features the goddess in mermaid form, with a beautiful spirally detail on her body, seaweed fabric, and a triple goddess charm.
I love it....

Follow Your Dreams

I made this stunning cushion using some special fabrics.



Check out the way the Emerald City shimmers with the variegation in the fabric.

I painted lots of gold glitter on the road, red glitter onto the shoes, green glitter on the City... there is a rainbow in the sky... 

I think I am going to love making a few of these. This one is a gift, and I am going to need at least one for me!!
