lovely parcel arrived. Look at the beautiful wrapping - a sweet thrifted button with some twine and a pretty tag. Everyone in my family loves this fabric, and it's to be made into some cushions for our tired old chairs on the verandah (where we intend eating every meal this whole Summer). I'm planning on using our black hemp as the backing - hmmmmm. Those colours will pop! Love love love being able to sew using all organic fabrics.
Lots of other cushions will under the machine today - some birthday present making for my niece + newphew.
More creative spaces over here (unfortunately no time to visit them all today, for me, as I know I'll be too distracted!).
*Mishi has turned into a puppy dog these past weeks, she needs a leash tied around her tummy and her daddy/owner (Ari) walks her around the house. She's a very good puppy, and does excellent tricks too.
**thought I'd better put this note in here, seeing as how this blog is somehow meant to be a sort-of rememberance of the kids' childhood. We rushed Mishi to the emergency room last weekend, blood gushing from her little chin. She'd slipped over on the tiles in the bathroom. Big brother Ari called out, and we came running. Luckily my sister was here (helping me do some screen printing), as I don't cope too well with the whole blood and hospital thing. She's all okay now - very brave girl. They glued her up with special magic fairy glue; they don't do stitches anymore.
