I love fairies especially naive fairies! just like Felicity Wishes. I am always on the lookout for fabric with this kind of fairy, I find it something I just HAVE to have, without any particular project in mind. Here are some snaps of a gorgeous pop up book of Felicity Wishes that Bel bought for herself with some xmas gift vouchers from Angus and Robertson Book Store. I just had to share (even though I found it hard to get good photos of it)
cakes coming out of the oven...
top floor balcony.....very glittery with flower pots
you get quite a few fairies with it too.....
goodies set up for a fairy party......
another shot of the washing just because I love it...... I think I should try and get some better photos of it later for you, these really don't do it any justice.
here is mini moopy 2. I cut out moopy months ago when I made the first one for Bel and this one was just left in my work basket while I made other projects, got through xmas and school holidays. Zoe has been very patient waiting for her to be finished. moopy 1 came out to greet her sister but was a little distressed to see the state of her....limbs everywhere
so she thought she would get to work and help put her together!!
I've had a bit of a fabric fix this week! I felt the need to buy some pretty stuff, I felt in a pink mood as you can see! With a little of that lovely green I like thrown in. I don't know how to describe the green except to say it looks like a lime milkshake. So it is 'lime milkshake green' from now on. The pink japanese one on top came from the internet but the rest was from....yes you guessed it....Spotlight. Sometimes a girl doesn't have a choice, but I must say the staff have been much friendlier lately but sometimes there is still a wait to be served long enough for me to want to pass out! On more than one occasion I just about have and have had to leave. Recently I left hubby holding the fabric and had to rush to the car to sit down! the one below I took a close up of because I think it is so beautiful it is a wonderful thick woven fabric and was reduced from $12.99 per metre to $2.00 per metre. What a bargain, it is always worth checking out the clearance table. I liked it sooo much at that price I bought 5 metres of it!! The weather has finaly turned to a more civilised autumn weather so I have been washing fabrics and started a softie I cut out literally months ago. I also have another bag in my head. I want to mix a whole lot of fabrics together for it so am hoping that works out. The official autumnal equinox is on the 20th March so I am counting the days, although like I said the weather is quite tolerable now. Much more suitable for sewing...and maybe even more attempts at knitting...we'll see, don't want to get toooo excited! :o)
here is the bag I made for the One Hour Craft Bag Swap. My swap partner was Lisa who lives in Atlanta. Lisa doesn't have a blog so I can't put up a link. We both are right into recycling so we decided we had to make our bags from fabric we already had in our stash and/or from recycling clothing. I decided to do both in the end. I had fabric left from the bag I made my sister last month and also fabric left from a Pointy Kitty I made months ago. The pocket on the front is from a skirt that was Zoe's and she grew out of a couple of years ago. I have always kept it to use as I loooove the fabric. I am REALLY loving the colour combination of pink green and white.
we have had relentless heat for weeks and last night we were able to actually sleep without fans on and the doona over us yippeeeeeee I hope the autumn weather kicks in very soon. If it does I will be able to sew more and even blog more :)
