The Past Week

The hat was finished and found it's way to a beautiful little girl who has recently got a part in a musical.
I see lots of cold days in rehearsal ahead for her.
They are exactly her colours and she looked divine.

A few jars of olives have already found other homes too and I'm thinking these make wonderful gifts.

Sleep patterns have a bit disturbed with adjustments to Craig's work schedule.
I've had a birthday which is always exciting
and Mother has arrived home after three months abroad.

I have made a couple of cushions from some vintage bark cloth and fine linen.
They are now in the shop Resurekt.

I adore linen and it was a joy to sew.

Also another apron, completely reversible and in size M
also available at Resurekt.

It looks bluish but the contrast is actually a vibrant purple and also has purple gingham.
I just had to dress the pocket with the selvage information edge.
Again a gorgeous fabric.

A big week.....


  1. Yowsers Tanya, you have been busy whipping up some wonderful things.....

    Gorgeous barkcloth and the colours in the apron, just stunning.

    The pattern for that hat looks quite tricky, it's very cute, reminds me of the gumnut babies with their little pointy gumnut hats. I'm sure it will be well worn and appreciated with this cold snap.

    Hope you are staying warm and toasty.......

  5. P.S. I knew there was something important I forgot to say..........

    "Hippo Birdie Two Ewes, Hippo Birdy Two Ewes"

    Hope you had a lovely day and were thoroughly spoilt.
