A couple of nice things to share with you this week

My 'new' rose 'Lavender Pinocchio' which I've planted
next to my 'new' studio, so that I can look out of my lovely french
doors and be inspired by its beauty.

My inspiration wall next to my sewing desk..xo
Hope your all having a nice week.
If your in the Manawatu this weekend, pop into the crosshills
country fair in Kimbolton.

My girlfriend Debs popped in last weeekend.
A fleeting visit full of inspiration, drooling and cups of tea.
It was lovely.
Debs is an amazing artist, and for the past few years has been producing
the most amazing mixed!

I was 'blog cruising' the other day and came across this lady
using this very nifty tool
I can't remember the blog now but I went on the prowl the
next day for the nifty tool!
It is a bias binding thingy. You feed the fabric through and press it
with the iron as it comes out the other side and
it's all folded and ready to go! So today as I started doing
some sewing, an order for one of my pinny tops, and I didn't have the right coloured tape, I suddenly remembered my 'nifty tool thingy'
and went 'yay'!
Here is my beautiful binding. I love bias binding but anything other than plain coloures costs you a fortune. My nifty tool was $17 (not exactly 'cheap') shall get loads of use.
The brand is clover and I got it down at the local patch work shop.

And the lovely model baby looks so grown up. ..
When did that happen?
