Evelyn Rose

This is the rose Evie is named after, smells beautiful, just like a rose should.

Show and tell

Here are my new "Moo" business cards, with Lara Cameron designs on them. I like the little cards, they have the new name Evie & Liv on them.
And some random sewing I've been doing...dresses and skirts that will be up on Etsy in early March.

On another note, my bum is feeling a little better, thanks :) It has a nice dark bruise on it, as does my arm, where the car hit me the other day.

A is for...

Apple. My apple dress is in another apple treasury today! Very appropriate for this hemisphere at the moment, with apples starting to ripen, yum!

I have a few things to blog about soon, but can't sit for too long as my bum is sore! We got hit by a car this morning (nothing too serious), but we were reversed into when we were crossing the road in town, which knocked me down holding Liv, and I knocked Evie down as I went over, so we had 2 screaming girls who got a hell of a fright. Poor Andrew who tried to stop it from happening but couldn't. We're all ok though.

It's been a hot week here, now we're having a thunder storm, and it's bucketing down with rain, inside activities have been called for this week. We've been playing around with making doll dresses and skirts. Hannah above has a new cherry dress, I drafted a pattern yesterday. Very fiddly around the arm holes!
Sparrow has a new mermaid dress
And my chest of drawers has a new runner, made from Lara Cameron's ginkgo print in green, from Habitat Textiles, thanks Amber! And I'm showing off my 'new' jewellery box, it's an essential oil box my Pa made for me when I was in my late teens out of walnut wood. It took him ages, as he figured out the dovetail joins. I wasn't using it much as an oil box anymore as I buy bigger sizes bottles these days for massage and soap making, and the jewellery box I had just wasn't doing it for me anymore. So voila, a freshen up of my dressing table, with some handcrafted items.

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup pecans

Mix wet ingredients, add dry ingredients, pour into 2 loaf tins, bake at 180 degrees celcius for 1 hour. (pop one in the freezer for later).
