Birdy Bag

I'm not really that good at sewing, but I LOVE it, so that's what matters the most! Here is a pic of today's 2 hour project. Bits and bobs of old ribbon and fabric, turned into a fancy shopping bag! If I can make this in a few hours, then anyone can!!

Shrunken cashmere

I like to pride myself in my washing skills, it is afterall, one of my most favourite past times. But sometimes I mess it up, and ofcourse, it wasn't a rubbish old tea towel that I ruined, but Simon's fave cashmere tank top. BUT, one to never waste a crafty opportunity, I have made it into a cute cushion for our friend's new baby boy, Freddy. I wanted to keep it, but it's constant reminder of better times as a tank top were too much for Si to take.

Wendy's Secret Garden

Created by the widow of Brett Whitely after he passed away, this gorgeous secret oasis is just along from Lunar Park in Lavender Bay. It made me feel like a small child as I walked thru all the beautiful deep greens ferns and huge native plants. There are kooky seats and random objects amongst all the flora and fauna. Don't tell too many people, but do try it out on a hot day for a fabulous, cool picnic. It's just sublime.
