not a huge one, but I love that it has given the hankies a new lease on life. Lavender sachets but I bet you thought they were going to become pincushions. For more creative spaces…get yourself over to Koo’s

I don’t often get the chance to shop, let only op shop but with the eldest at daycare and Alfie quite content with goods from the bakery, I popped into the local oppy. Given that I am all about cross stitch this week, imagine my absolute delight when I stumbled upon these two beauties. Quite […]

I’m the sort of girl that is always looking forward to something, so when I saw this post by Buttons by LouLou I knew that I would have to join in. It’s Tuesday and I can’t wait for…my Mum’s Biggest Morning Tea, which is actually being held this Saturday afternoon so I guess it’s Mum’s […]


Lasso Quilt

by Kate on May 5, 2009

I was fortunate enough to receive the Meet Me At Mike’s craft book for my birthday back in March. As the book was given to me by one of the contributors – the very talented Alison of 6.5 stitches – I thought it only appropriate that her project be the first one I complete. The […]
