I spent an hour and two book vouchers in Whitcoulls recently and this is what I got. Fashion Quarterly came with a free facial too so doubly great. That little one you can't see properly is New Zealand Gardener.
This little bookshelf was $20 at the Masterton Family Store and the perfect size and style for our tiny spare room. I like to think visitors will enjoy reading in bed.
Pauline - a lovely blog reader sent me some Frida fabric after reading my recent post asking where to buy it. I feel so lucky and have to think hard about what to sew.
Pauline - of the image above - also sent a Frida badge. Yay! Lets hope old ladies can tell this time that it's not me. The two parrots on the shoulder should give it away...
Sewed it 'til my fingers bleed - was the winter of 2010... bags lined up and ready to roll out at Craft 2.0 on Saturday 12 June. Since they're in my studio everything has a slightly green tinge from the walls.
