Mikes Mirabel does eBay

Go forth and buy softies, for a cause, on eBay people! Yay for Mikes, yay for Mirabel.

In other non-news, I must be having some sort of winter thing going on - haven't been making anything lately. Nothing. Nix. Have taken some photos, that's about it. Yep, it's just cold here. Perhaps I'm hibernating.

It's a cushion!

OK, finished my log cabin-type cushion ages ago but am only now getting around to taking a snap of it. It's very bright and colourful and doesn't fit in that well with the muted colours of our other cushions, but looks rather fancy atop a bed covered in white sheets/doona/pillow cases etc.

Brrrr need a log cabin cushion

It was sooo cold tonight and I stupidly went out with footless tights on, ie: bare ankles, and I had no beanie. This combined with a bicycle and speeding around & some rain = a lot of freezingness. So when I got home I decided I needed to turn the heater up and make a log cabin cushion cover (or something like a log cabin cushion cover - can't remember exactly what they're supposed to look like...) while eating Lindt dark chocolate.

That's a shot of all the cut bits stuck next to each other...which looks rather unimpressive compared to the pillow's current status - all the bits sewn together...but you get the idea. The fabric is a combination of random polka dots and bits and pieces and then lots of fabric from Auntie Cookie, Lotta Jansdotter & stuff that I've screen printed. Can't wait to get it all sewn up tomorrow and fingers crossed it will look half as good as the brilliant ones Lisa Congdon has made.

Shopping is fun

Bought a few fabulous fabrics online recently - finally got a PataPri 'apples' teatowel before they sold out - lovely. Don't think it will be used for dishes...it would be better in a frame. And a bag full of Lotta Jansdotter fabric remnants - brilliant! Will have to pull the sewing machine out.

It's raining today

It doesn't rain that much here in Melbourne, and when it does I seem to want/have to make little illustrations inspired by the rain. I can't really explain it...perhaps it's something to do with being a Pisces. This pic includes apple pips (can you tell?), something I was thinking of using for a pattern to screenprint.
