Slowly but surely getting there. I tried my hand at grouting today, got half a wall done. Not a fun job!

What en exciting way to spend your Easter weekend- renovating your bathroom! It was high time to pull out the terrazzo, in favour of something shiny and new (and waterproof!) You can see above the newly installed bath some dark areas where water was damaging the walls, through to the kitchen on the other side. We'll be tiling up to the window level, so there should be no chance of that happening again. This bathroom seems to be original to the 1953 build of the house. I'll pop up a before pic soon.

Just a few items I've been making over the last few weeks, finally had some time and nice weather to photograph and upload to Etsy. I had to have a play with my favourites from the new Echino range, and I've sold a few pairs of upcycled pants lately, so I need to make a few more pairs. Evie thinks she'd like to keep all 3 items she modelled for me, I guess we have similar taste!

I like this sort of recycling/upcycling- free, good quality old wooden chair + carbon neutral hand screen printed local fabric, which is designed to last.

And I picked up this mohair scarf yesterday in an op shop for $3. It's a pink/pale blue combo that I might turn into a vest for Evie, though she likes it as a scarf. She likes the rose fabric on the chair above too.
