We're in for a few days of camp beds, open fires, motorbiking (the boys), fishing and hopefully being able to bury my head in a good book (well fingers crossed anyway!).

This week has been busy but ill have lots to share when i get back!

a fabric obsession...

i really cant help myself when it comes to gorgeous fabric and a sale! i told myself that i wouldn't buy any more fabric until i had used this big stash of yummy fabrics

but alas i was browsing etsy last week and came across the Fabric Closet having a moving sale and had all fabric on sale....

and these happen to jump into my shopping basket....

WHOOPS.....(but secretly i LOVE it!)

maybe i should spent more time sewing and less time browsing haha!

thanks for stopping by!

Birthday celebrations...

Well Little miss and i headed up to Handmade Heaven today, both to drop off some stock and have a poke around the shop. Liesa went all out and the place looked GREAT - balloons and facepainting, cupcakes and the shop jam-packed with handmade loveliness. Little Miss of course went straight for the balloons and kept changing her mind on what colour balloon she wanted - pink, no brown, no PINK! (we finally settled on pink - no suprises!) she got her face painted 'like a princess' while mummy got 5 minutes of peaceful browsing without making sure she wasn't pulling 'all the pretties' off the shelves at her height!

i recently set myself up a little space downstairs and although it is wonderful and a great work space, it is lacking in a little creative look. So i just couldn't help myself when i saw this wall hanging made by Lilly Cottage. Perfect for the bare wall in the studio - LOVE IT!

hanging on the wall in the studio....

Now im off i have a date with my recliner, a hot cuppa and our flat screen to watch the Maroons make it 5 straight series against the blues!

Thanks for stopping by!

Well i have been spoilt this week in celebration of my birthday

i received these lovely goodies from my friends and family....

i have wanted a bread maker for a while now and thanks to my ever s0 practical hubby i now have one of my own! As a kid my mum always used to make her own bread and i used to love waking up in the morning to the delicious smell of a hot loaf of bread on the table! so i've been cooking up a storm this week - Mr JK keeps coming home to loaves of EVERYWHERE.

i also got these...

i was banned from the kitchen for the night while Mr JK cooked me a fabulous dinner and a BIG chocolate cake YUM!

But what i am most excited about is still coming in the post and i just cant wait for it to arrive.....

Now i don't own any sewing books (i'd love some recommendations?), so i am excited to get me hands on this one! I can't wait to get sewing and share some of these projects! It looks so delicious, so excited!

thanks for stopping by!
