... a beanbag ...

In a promise to my daughter that I would 'renovate' her bedroom, this is my starting point, a beanbag and floor cushion.

It has taken me two (that's right 2) whole days to put together a bean bag for my daughter, it is very generous, I drafted the pattern from one at home and somehow made it twice as big. Couldn't get my inner bean bag in and had to unpick the side and sew it back up again. I have visions of her jumping on it and splitting the seams.

Also made a round floor cushion, which is ok, not really happy with how the base turned out, and the cushion is pretty lumpy. But I have a very happy 10 year old customer who is delighted that I am finally getting around to doing her room.

I am going to leave the homewares to the girls from Mookah, and continue to concentrate on my gorgeous range of accessories and clothing!!

always time for a coffee

After dropping my parents off at the airport last weekend at a very early hour, I treated myself to a coffee at Brunetti's. I must admitt the place has changed significantly since I was at Melbourne Uni and I used to ride my bike past the window and gaze longingly at the amazing cakes, however it does still remind me of breaks between lectures, morning tea in the woodwork studio and my husband.

In fact I sent this photo to him ...
