It's nice to be back in the city after a few days away. The colder weather back here is not too much of a shock, and it was lovely to see family and friends again, and eat as many feijoas as possible. I also did a bit of supplies-shopping while I was there and feel like lots of new ideas came to me- that hasn't happened in a while. I hope you had a great week too.
I had some scraps of this beautiful stripy linen left- so I worked some small stitches on them, inspired by a few paper clippings from my scrapbook. While I was down south I had to buy some local dried lavender at the market, so I backed the pieces of embroidery with Liberty lawn and filled up the little pockets with the dried buds. It's such an amazing scent.
While I was away I was surprised and thrilled to be included in this event again- The Handmade Olympics, this time in event 2: favourite handmade item for kids. You can go here to see the work on offer (there are some very cool things) and vote. Thank you for your support!
Happy new weekend ahead! I'll have friends visiting, a dinner party and hopefully a new knitting project to get stuck into- hooray. Enjoy yours.
