It's been a looooong week. Jack has been sick which means we've been confined to the house for most of the week and he can't socialise with other kids. I'm not sure who it's been harder on.

We did however have a trip to the zoo over the weekend which is always fun. Jack was particularly fond of a small wooden thai sculpture in the trail of the elephants enclosure. So much so he went up and gave it a hug....cute!

In between that I have managed to get a few more button bits and pieces finished. Here's some new brooches and lapel pins. I really, really, really love the light green and red fabric...I'm not sure if that one will make it out of the house

so proud

Well I'm a little cranky after my late night so to cheer myself up here's a picture of my son's first drawing. I think it's a masterpiece of course - straight to the fridge!

late one....

It's late...well late for me. My significant other is having a poker night and I don't like going to bed alone. So to delay I've been cleaning....yes I was desperate! I've re-organised all my crafty bits and pieces..much more orderly. I fear it won't last long though. Once I'm creating I tend to shove first and worry about it later.

Not much doing for the weekend.....just trying to survive a rainy day with a toodler is work enough!

Here they are...I'm rapt with them.

birds on the brain

I bought some lovely fabric from pippijoe last week. I also bought some embroidary hoops from Spotlight. I can't wait for the fabric to arrive so I can make some wall hangings...stay tuned!

2 for the price of 1

I recently found these combo brooch/bails. They were exactly what I was looking for...Don't you love it when that happens? So you get a brooch and a necklace all in one! These button necklaces are 4.5cm wide and hung on a wire choker. The brooch/bail back is hidden so the pendant looks like it's floating on the wire.

I've been trying for 3 days to post these...something keeps getting in the way (Refer to photo below) Some new brooches. These are 3.8cm round. Not too big, not too small

New rings. Some are quiet big. I want to wear them all


This is why I haven't posted all week....seems someone is jealous of the computer
