Style Interior

Saw a link on Penny's blog and thought it looked interesting...perfect interiors, yeah right! I have 3 children and am not the tidiest most organised of people! But I do like what I see in the magazine cover :-)

Check out your style here.

Colours & Words, Week 6.

vote for your fave this week at Aussie Scrap Source.
I found this weeks colour palette really hard to work with...but think I got there with a lot of help from 3 Bugs & the slice with a little cosmo cricket.

Earthquake last night shook us all up a bit...was busy playing Settlers of Catan (board game) with my Parents in-law and I felt like I was just kept going so we all got under door frames in the hallway (including the kids who had been sleeping soundly till we woke them). Eventually it stopped, then started, then stopped, then started...then stopped. It was 7.8 on the Richter scale. The kids took a while to get back to sleep. Was a rolling quake rather than a short sharp shift.

Term Break almost over.

cool 100th post giveaway...

Check out Clare's blog for info!
Love the frog & I've been eyeing up the homesewn mag for a while...

Crochet hat

I came up with this pattern by following a pattern but doing my own thing very typical, sometimes it works.
I used a possum merino wool from the Milton Woolen Mill so it's really soft!
Thanks for the papers Kim, will get this in the post to you.

Queenstown Scrap Retreat Competition

for early bird registrations...not one, not two but three of the handmade bags that were part of the giveaways at the Winter Fest Retreat....get your reg form and deposit paid by July 31st for a chance to win all three of the different colour ways.

See the Queenstown Spring Scrap Retreat Blog for further info.

I'm currently working on workshops for the retreat...any suggestions are welcome! I'm thinking that lots of gift ideas would go down a treat in November. I wonder what the chef will come up with to delight us for the A La Carte dinner on the Saturday night this time???
