April Wallpaper - let's sleep through Winter!

I'd almost forgotten about next month's wallpaper and in Melbourne, the cold is starting to bite although we're still in Autumn.  I really don't like the cold...I'm one of those people who enjoys basking in 40 degrees heat!  The last few days, it's been cold and I've just wanted to stay in my warm bed all day...looking at this photos is exactly what I would like to do all through Winter...hybernate like the bears...
Please find below April's Wallpaper, hope you like it! :D 
Just visit my Flickr account for a larger pic here:


🐰🐰🐰 Miss Bunny Easter! 🐰🐰🐰

Daniel's Easter Hat Parade at school just finished...I had almost forgotten all about it but thankfully I had a week to make a hat for my boy.  
After shopping for everything I needed, I have to say I had a of fun creating Daniel's Easter hat, almost getting the feel of what it would be like to be a costume designer! What an awesome job that would be, especially creating the costume and set for the new release Beauty and the Beast movie! Well, here is the hat so far...the spec according to Daniel is no chicks and just one big egg!! I managed to get some gold feathers in there! Just love them! Am really happy with how it's turned out so far...but I think it needs a bow tie at the front...

Ta da!  I think he loved yet, especially the real easter egg which he'll get to eat after the parade!! :)

Since Daniel's Easter hat was a priority on the weekend, I didn't get to finish my bunny but here she is....please meet my sweet miss bunny ready to celebrate Easter!! 🐣 

and she comes with her little bag, she's a bit of a girly girl this one!  Miss Bunny Easter is has just been listed in my Etsy shop:

Feel free to email me if you have any question regarding my new Bunny.   
School holidays has just started and I'm hoping I'll get more JLB done..which reminds me, I'm running late for April's wallpaper!!! Will get right on it! eeeek

The day is just too short when I'm in the my sewing room! ~

I had such an awesome day yesterday, not needing to go to work and spending the most of the day in my sewing room!! I received these beautiful quilt fabrics by Liberty of London a while ago and now am at the stage of putting the wadding and backing together.  This is for my Blythe Belle's bed, she's been waiting way too long and Winter is coming she keeps telling me! :D  

I think it's coming along nicely, I absolutely love the combination of fabrics!  

I also managed to work on my bunny...I made little adjustments to my pattern and used this cutesy Japanese fabric for her inner ears.  Am really hoping she'll be ready to celebrate Easter! :D

She is Saraphine...❤️

I don't recall where I'd heard that name before but Saraphine is stuck in my head whilst trying to think of a name for this little girl.  So I googled the definition and this came up:Top Definition - Saraphine. An abnormal person that is often recongized as weird or special. She is a saraphine...well this little girl is pretty special to me!! So Saraphine it new girl!  hope you like her.   I shall have more photos of her on my website and she'll be available in my Etsy shop planned for tomorrow.  Thank you always for stopping by and taking the time to read my posts.Hugs,xx

Every Day Is A Journey...

hey what's this? two posts in one day???  hehe..yes I got a day off work and I told myself, this day is going to be all about my bears and dolls..before my boy comes home from school! :D

It was such a great day today with a brilliant (literally) start to the morning!   It went by way too quickly...that is always the case when I'm working on my bears or dolls but I'm so pleased it was a strike on my "good day" column and I managed to get my new girl finished.

The first thing I did after hubby took our son to school, I ran, yes literally ran into my sewing room and got cracking on my new Blythe's backplate. I love seeing the backplate art by other artists but I don't do it myself.  I'm still contemplating if I will but I think its best I allow where the creativity and most times, where the girls will take me.  :D

I do however, like to put a little inspirational quote on there for each of my girls :) I hope this too will give hope and inspiration to their new mums too!  This is what I did this morning..

Now my girl is finally finished and ready to be put back together.  I'm still trying to think of a name for her but nothing has come to mind as yet...maybe when she's all dressed up, she'll let me know what her name is. :D

I received a lovely handkerchief from one of my purchases as a gift.  It was a lovely handkerchief and as soon as I saw it, I knew I was going to use it to make a dress for this little girl.

Still a little bit of touch up here and there and she'll be ready to be properly photographed however, for now, that's all for today from me, time to get dinner ready ( lasagne tonight 😋 ) and can't wait for my boy to come home from school!! Have a super fab day everyone, especially to those who's day has just begun.


Best way to wake up!

Love waking up to the warm glow of sunrise coming through my bedroom window. 

The best way to wake up to the world besides being showered with kisses by my little boy! This morning was extremely bright and orange and all so amazing!! 

I had to jump out of bed (at 6:30) to take pics..and for those who know me well knows I'm so not a morning person at all but this was way too awesome to miss and stay in bed...

.....and an hour later, it's raining!!  

I'm ok with that, what do I expect right, I live in Melbourne! Besides, I have a whole day to myself to spend in my sewing room!!! yeah, now lets see what I can get done today...
