Secret Monkey Sheriff

Giving the Ooshka pattern another whirl... I think the fabrics match up better in this one, and I'm pleased I got to put scraps of two of my favourite fabric designs to appropriate use.

Upmarket Dollface

I went to the Perth Upmarket yesterday. It's held at Winthrop and Hackett Halls at the University of Western Australia, and is packed with local handicrafters. Nothing there is cheap, but everything is gorgeous.

Hat for a Boy!

Here's what I decided on for some of the glorious 'boy' fabric I bought at the Quilt Fair: a hat.

Choo choo!

The train has been applied, and it was a hit. :-)

The shirt has since been covered in all manner of slime. Funny how that happens..

It's Numberwang!

Here's a softie I made a while back for the wee little one from the 'cosmonaut devil' pattern in this book.

Guess who went to the Craft Fair?

When I first went to the Perth Craft and Quilt Fair a few years ago I was relieved I was only interested in paper craft and beadwork at the time. I thought there were so many lovely things for knitters and sewers (an unfortunate word if there ever was one) you could spend a small fortune on pretty things. Then I took up knitting again, but at least I didn't sew. Now (sigh) I do.

Cart before the Horse

One day there will be photos here, and everyone will say "Ooooh!" and "Fancy that!" and go all giddy with whimsy and delight.

One day.
