my goodness only a week until easter. feel like i have been chasing my tail this term and only just managing to squeeze in sewing time. hopefully over easter and the holidays i will be able to catch up on some projects...that chair in the garage still awaits.
no girl friday on good friday so see you in a couple of weeks...
i made this week's tea cosy from a fabric i recently fell in love with. too cute. love the moose walking by casually and the bear coming up for a friendly scare. will be making more so each animal gets a chance to shine...that red fox is just itching to get into centre frame.

i made this bunting for my little girl's room, out of an old book i had when i was little. the book was well loved and had the odd pencil scribble added to it however i managed to selvage most of it. i love its bold illustrations and the square format ended up looking great as bunting.
one of my favourite sewing projects is finding wool or leather coats from op-shops and restyling them. i bought this coat in an op-shop last year and have only finished re-styling it now! just shows you how long it can get some projects finished with kids around...anyway am now loving its cropped sleeves and new buttons.
also just purchased this great 'our hearts beat for kokako' badge from chalkydigit's online shop. visit www.chalkydigits.co.nz/shop/help+our+kokako.html to find out how chalkydigits are supporting new zealand birdlife. i am super pleased with it and well worth $20!
