Do you read the blog JustB?  Pop over and have a little look, lots of great pieces to read across many different topics - craft, cooking and other newsy bits and pieces.  The very wonderful & super talented Kirsty of Kootooyo is one of their contributors and recently came to Sydney to photograph some creative spaces for her Creative Space Tour that features on the JustB blog.  Kirsty's photography is superb.  She is very clever at capturing the very essence of her subject in the most minute of details.  And she writes really nice things too.  Go have a little look.

And that up there is the start of my new quilt.  They are the first four blocks.  I'll keep you posted as I move along. Happy Friday!

peace please

as we approach the end of our trading year I thought it best to pop our holiday break schedule here to be seen:

close 5pm saturday 22nd december, re-open 10am thursday 3rd january

Mosman Park
close 5pm saturday 22nd december, re-open 9.30am thursday 3rd january

this silly duffer is hobbling around with a sprained ankle - just in time for the christmas festivities.
I know I had been given many messages to slow down and because I didn't listen a wonky ankle was in order, forcing the issue.

please don't wait for such an eventuality...  try to relax, treat yourselves to a cuppa and spend time making and creating. 
let's keep this christmas season real, maybe ditching some of the excessive expectation and make choices that work for you and your closest loved ones.
tif fussell's (dotti angel) got it right here:
'do feel a little crafty at least twice a day'

inoui for christmas?

beautiful inoui scarves are back in store...
just in time for Christmas!

(thanks lexi and scout, gorgeous)

Mrs Smith will be receiving our book package as the winner of our christmas crafting competition.
we were all wooed into a melancholy moment with her simple handmade christmas gift desire...

"I am not sure it counts as homemade, but my longed for gift is a love letter. My best friend's husband writes her a letter filled with love every Christmas and I think that is the best gift anyone could give."

thank you to all who gave us contributions
