Back to our normal programming...

Well! Doesn't take long to get back to normal does it, even with school holidays!!

Had a lovely time in Castlemaine despite the non-stop rain (So welcome but restricting for 4 & 7 y.o. boys), thankyou to everyone for their good wishes :)

I have found some wonderful treasures to show you when I get around to photographing them for you. Since I returned I have had a creative spurt. I came accross Softies at Mirabels and was so inspired by the idea of creating soft toys for children who have suffered from some kind of Trauma I sat down and began designing my own little softies to send on.

A page from my little sketch book and my first softie design ready to be made into a pattern. I have used vintage fabrics from my stash to create her and here she is enjoying her first day birthday. No name yet. Some things I would change next time (if) around but each will be unique and totally from my imagination. So however they are born from my hands is how they want to be...
Welcome...
Time to relax...


...and enjoy the spring flowers... ...and check out whats happenning where...

Life is good.


Hope you are having a wonderful week too.


Warm wishes, Irene x

Your softie is very cute! For some reason I am calling her "B".
