Long time no post!

Sorry for such a long absence, my sewing mojo seems to be missing and I felt that I had nothing of interest to share. I have been doing a bit of crochet over the last few months

I finished off my pink and white crochet chevron blanket

And last weekend it turned really cold so I whipped up a crochet beanie, I also made one up in cream
A cream crochet scarf, I also made one in blue for a friend

And this is my latest new bike! Lol! I recently upgraded my bike and have been bike riding everyday now for 78 days! And the bonus is I've also lost a few kilos doing something I really enjoy and feel so much healthier!

Hope to return again soon:)

Sew Serendipity dress

Very quiet here on the sewing front, I did make myself a dress from Kay Whitts Sew Serendipity book a couple of weeks back

I love vintage fabrics, so much nicer to sew with

It really is hard doing selfies, but here I am modelling my new dress, so comfortable and I already have plans to make another

Thought it looked better with my butterfly necklace

Here's a few vintage fabrics that arrived in the post on Friday...they are so pretty!

Bye For Now

Macarons and a bit of sewing!

I have been trying to think what I have to share since my last post, I have been busy but not with much sewing! I did however spend some time in my sewing room this arvo...which was so enjoyable! I made my first lot of Macarons earlier this week and they were a huge success! Chocolate and Chai...yum!

A very quick project this morning was to add some floral trim to some hand towels...gotta love such a easy quick project:)

And completed this afternoon was my July stitchalong project...Natalie Birds designs are such a joy to make!

Now to start August I had better get busy!

Bye For Now

This week I have been busy stitching the hexagons for my July Stitch A Long project, which is a cute Natalie Bird bag...I am late but still not giving up:)

My Cream Mink Protea flowered this year, so I'm enjoying it on my bench along with my other Proteas

AND pretty excited last week to have my new √Āracauna lay their first blue egg...I was like an excited child and came running fom the chook yard to show everyone!!!lol! 

Now I have lots of hexies to join tonight, so I had better get busy!

And while I'm on a roll here as this new posting app is so easy, here's some non eating baking done during the week...can you guess from my drawing what it's for?

Trying to perfect my Gnocchi, third attempt with this one as it was delicious!


Trying out a new posting app on my iPad...Hope it works out! This little box I had put away for some herbs to go in on my kitchen bench, but I have decided its much better with a few pretty fabrics in my sewing room!

I have also been enjoying some time in the kitchen trying out a new Banana cake was so yumm!

I also splurged on a LynetteAnderson designed iPhone case...pretty cute, couldn't resist the one with a chook!

Bye For Now
