At the moment I'm encouraging myself to learn to sew by surrounding myself with sewing supplies and gorgeous fabrics. Think that might work? I've been a huge fan of Anna Maria Horner fabric for quite some time and finally got my hands on my own little pile of fat quarters (love that sewing term) in some very gay hues. Also added some assorted buttons from Etsy seller Kellwood though I think my primary motivation in this case might have been to introduce my boy to the joy of buttons. Like everyone, I loved playing with my mum's button collection!

The fantastic quilted blanket is from Etsian RaggedyOwl, very good for picnics in the garden and hiding under in the living room.

These pennants from Adorablefiend are awesome and are the inspiration for my first ever sewing project! I wonder what mine will turn out like?? Yikes!

Does anyone sew out there? Any tips for someone embarking on finding the bestest, most inexpensive sewing machine suitable for a person who hasn't sewn since high school?

June G I V E A W A Y still on. Scroll to post below.


I'm starting to get the impression that warm weather and spending time near water are my least favourable conditions for keeping up with blog entries.. June has been very blad indeed. But the month is not quite over - we can still fit in the June GIVEAWAY! It's a print I'm particularly fond of and I think it sums up where my head is at the moment. Ahhhh summer....

Leave a comment to be entered in the draw for "Best Time of the Day." Draw date: in about a week. Cheers!
