I'm Going...

To the Etsy Success Sydney event! 

Thanks to a fantastic giveaway from another Newcastle blog written by Heidi Adnum, I won tickets to the event! I am so excited to go, there are some fantastic speakers and workshops that should be excellent to go to. It's going to be a massive day for me, but I believe its going to be worth it! 

You can find out more about the event here or here

Weekend Wrap Up

This weekend I

-Spent some time designing and sewing. So many projects to work on, so little time!
-Made a yummy chicken salad and some mini toasted muesli muffins
-Wore a maxi skirt and boots at least twice! Definitely getting colder now.
-Spent some time working with some favourite materials. I am hoping to finish some new bags for the shop this week but I do have a few other things to do so that might be a tad optimistic!

Hot Stuff

Sometimes all you need is a full hot water bottle and a cup of tea on a chilly afternoon. Just a little present from Mum (thanks!) and the cover is really cute! I can't believe how much warmer they make you.

Simple Heart DIY

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3! Simply cut the hearts (or any other shape you wish), sew in desired pattern and hang as you wish. Perfect for prettying up rooms and bring a smile to your face! I am planning to make a few more of these in different hanging patterns for different parts of the house.

Motivation has returned and if finished off some new bags for the shop! I'm currently working on some new ideas that I am excited about. My fabric has been reorganised and I can see all of it now which is making me want to sew, sew, sew!

Weekend Wrap Up!

The past weekend I spent road tripping up to visit the family and I took a special someone up with me to meet some new people and explore the area.

We spent time trying out some of my favourite places to eat at home and some new places that I haven’t had a chance to see yet. Once of these was a cafĂ© on the top of North Brother mountain, it was so nice and it has the best view of the area. There was also a Mother’s Day breakfast which (most) of the family came too so it was great to catch up with everyone.

I also had to introduce all the animals, and Dudley has definitely found a new favourite person. Some games of fetch were played but mostly he was content to lay in the afternoon sun with us. The cows and other animals are so much bigger than when I last saw them and their winter coats have come in so they are all woolly.

Overall it was such a great weekend. The weather was so fantastic and warm, it was lovely! We even stopped for a short picnic on the drive home which was perfect. I couldn't ask for a better weekend!

A Walk Around Newcastle

It has been beautiful weather in the last few days and the sunshine has been lovely! Yesterday I was surprised with a nice walk around the beaches in Newcastle. It was the perfect day for it and it was a very nice way to spend the afternoon.

Weekend + Studio Peeks

This weekend I:

-Spent time in the sun with my legs uncovered, possibly for the last time before winter. It has been very cold since then and now I'm all rugged up!

-Socialised with friends and went out for lunches and dinners.

-Exchanged some more music which I'm excited to start listening too!

-Seriously cleaned/tidied and organised my studio and sewing spaces as well as the rest of the house in preparation of our first house inspection.

-Took some photographs to share my studio space. It's no where near finished, there is still some things I would like to add and change, but I like where it is at now. Enjoy the photos!
