pink poppy

finally got some sewing mojo back and made this pink poppy bag for my etsy shop using a gorgeous opshop floral tablecloth in soft caramel with a contrasting pink poppy.  I lined it with a soft salvaged white pillowcase that has similar pinks but in daffodils.  I was going to make a few more bags today but my friend dropped in so we ended up at the Happy River Cafe for lunch. yum!

big happy weekend

it was a big happy weekend this last one.  my gorgeous friend got married, i sold some sweet tea towel cushions and i bought an apartment!  they say things happen in threes.  so there are some big changes ahead for me as i am downsizing on the road to financial independence.  i know i'll miss my little house but i'm ready for a change.

meanwhile today i made this tea towel nz wildflower cushion for an old friend who wanted one from my shop that got snapped up before i could reserve it.  i hope she likes it.

my friends wedding was brilliant on saturday, she looked beautiful, lovely service, the reception at a port melbourne pub was great - excellent food, stunning flowers, great speeches and some 80's dancing!  here are some of the flowers I have dismantled from one of the centrepieces, they were stunning all combined together but my cat ate all the tuilps!

Happy Easter lovely people!  I hope you enjoyed a break and lots of yummy chocolate.  I had toasted hot cross buns with real butter for breakkie each day.  Yum.

And look at this little fellow I found lurking in my tiny lemon tree.  I love finding insects like this in the garden as it makes me think the tiny eco system I have created must be doing okay.
