things i'm loving
Cath Kidston Book "Sew" and made her bag. Took the big leap and learnt how to do a button hole on the machine and put in a lining. Don't look too closely my stitching is a bit wonky and I just could not for the life of me work out how to do the roueaux loop for the front button to fasten with. So I did the buttonhole stitch loop instead but still with some difficulty. Maybe I could make a bunting for this up coming swap.
But here is a true artist at work. How beautiful are these ceramics. I love their delicate form and the earthy colours. Made by my sister in law Anne. Check her out here.
We have been here in Broken Hill for about half our time now. Just this weekend I have started to feel a bit lonely and so far away from everyone. Seeing photos of friends and old work mates on facebook reminds me that I often isolate myself trying to always achieve, achieve.
A lovely workmate and fabulous person has her own blog.http://cate-b.blogspot.com/ Cate is an amazing cook and her blog is filled with warm hearted thoughts and yummy recipes. Please visit and say hello.
Peace to you
