Been painting!!

As you might have noticed, I am sorry to say the sewing has been taking a bit of a back seat this year. I have been attempting to learn how to paint. I have spent a lot of time working on a portrait of a friend. Whilst this painting will never grace the walls of any gallery, it is my first attempt at a portrait and I feel quite proud of the fact that I have finally had the courage….(push) I needed to actually attempt something as complicated as a portrait.Image

I went shopping for a family birthday present, on the weekend. This consisted of a stop in rural victoria at a fabulous market in Castlemaine. It probably comes as no surprise to you that the shopping trip resulted in the discovery of yet another very talented crafter with so many things I liked that I just had to buy myself a present instead.

The very foxy lady who made this item has a stall on Etsy with only a very small sample of what fabulous treasures she had on display in her market stall.

ImageOh yes and as you can see her shop is called Fox & Co Travelling band

While you are on Etsy you just have to pop over and Check out Radish and Ruth with her fabulous felted creations. 

I received another parcel today. This time from my Mum.

It is so fantastic, I just love it!

Hold the mayo!

She will be listing them for sale on her Made it site next week so keep a look out for it if you want to own your very own crochet sandwich! They would make a wonderful gift for a little girl to encourage imaginary play skills. I’ll put a link in next week when they are listed.

Keep crafting everyone!
