The vegie garden was looking so lush and had ginormous zuchinis growing.

This morning while it was still raining, I made these bloomers for my niece's first birthday. I used a Bettsy Kingston pattern I bought online through Funky Fabrix here, though I only did two ruffles and modified how I attached the top ruffle. The material I used is from a pretty floral salvaged sheet from the op shop. I can't stop looking at them, I love the ruffles and think they turned out well for a first attempt and without an overlocker. I hope they fit her!
There was a giant hail storm in melbourne yesterday afternoon after a 27c degree sunny morning. I was at the races at Flemington to witness some huge hail that covered the ground like snow! It was amazing. We walked up some stairs in the grandstand that had a flood of water pouring down them, it was very The Goonies!
The races were cancelled, and after sitting out the worst of the rain I walked home, and found one way back blocked by a flooded road. It didn't stop this cyclist riding though knee deep water!

these are some cool tassie cushions made from the same 100% linen souvenir tablecloth found at Savers. I love the touch of floral motif to go with the tourist hotspots, though i am not sure how much of a tourist attraction the casino in Hobart is! They are in my etsy shop.
Meanwhile its been a gorgeous day here, and some local bees have adopted my water bowl in my tiny front yard. I love to watch them busy buzzing getting water for their hive. I asked the local honey maker from urban honey if they were his bees, but he didn't think so as they stay close to their hive for water. So i wonder if they are native wild bees or someones backyard hive. I still love the idea they are busy making honey! Tried a pic, but the bees are flying blurs!
