I'm back and shops reopen

It was a good holiday, wonderful to meet family and friends again, and it makes me feel more grateful for having them in my life. Catching up in person is definitely better than chatting online or through whatssapp. That said, I am also happy to retreat back into my little caccoon here in New Zealand. 



Both my Etsy and Felt shops are now reopen. Still lots to tidy up in there, relist some expired items and to make more books and fill up the shops. Due time. 

After a month being away, I came home to a very tired looking garden.
The zucchinis are composting right there on the patch.  

Parsley has gone to seed.

So has the coriander. 

The spiders have found use in them :)

The pot marigold has also self seeded. The basil is looking better, will be making pesto with those soon. 

Strawberries are due for replanting too. I diverted all the runners back into their own pots, just a quick solution before I left for the holidays. 

Looks like it is going to be busy for a couple of weekends in the garden. I am looking forward to it. 

Have a lovely weekend!

Going on a little break

Completed the last journal before my little break.

The stitched up denim and fabric scraps journal. A fun little hippie book to make,  I'll be making more of these when I come back as I still have loads of scrap fabrics.

That is all from me for now. Both my Etsy and Felt shops will be closed from 12 February till 22 March 2017. I am looking forward for my little break, and come back re-freshed to making and creating again.



See you sometime end of March or April :)

Hello February

Summer is finally here, after much waiting and whining from kiwis. Kiwis do love their summer :)

I've been working in the studio as usual, made some books and listed them on Etsy. I do love making these "cushiony books" as one friend refered them as, they do make nice little pillows.



A yellow floral vintage fabric journal with lace wrap closure.


A "tardis" blue journal.


And of course I have to make a shibori fabric journal.




I'm working on an upcycled journal at the moment, using fabric scraps that have been pilling up, I'm sewing them together to form a bigger piece, enough to make a book. Hopefully I can complete this one next week.

Last weekend's wandering... tramping at Mokoroa Falls Track.













The steps that keep going up, that's the way to go home, no turning back. After much huffing and puffing, we made it back to the car park.

The weather forecast says it'll be another sunny weekend, so we're off for another adventure.

Hope you'll have a wonderful weekend!
