mum came to visit me on saturday and brought these pretty little numbers.
aren't they pretty?
then, dropping ollie off to kindy this morning, the head teacher let me go through some fabric that had been dropped off. she thought there were some pieces that were my taste, and she was right!
i have plans for some of the pieces,the rest will just be lovingly added to my rather large fabric stash.
oh, yeah and there was these too! the cutest half apron and two hand embroidered doilies. love.
check out that pocket
ps. i do feel a wee bit bad taking from things that were heading for the kindy fabric scrap bin, but i can assure you i donate PLENTY of fabric, wool, time etc to that place. so it kind of works out perfectly. plus, how could i let kids cut that fabric up?!

saturday night was child free for me so i went along to a very rainy and wet marchfest , an awesome festival that is a yearly event here in nelson to mark the end of the hop season. it's pretty much beer, food and good music. this year's line-up was again amazing with the immigrants , the drab doo-riffs, john cooper clarke, and alabama 3. check them out!
(sorry about the shoddy band pictures, but that's what happens when you're trying to dance in suctiony mud and take a picture all at the same time.)

So my plans for today are: tidy the house, vacuum said house, cleaning ollie's room, baking, dvd's and jigsaw's with ollie, and dealing with some pesky aphids that are all around my computer...
not a very good picture, but he's there, in my hand
so if I get rid of the aphids, would you like a small tour of some of the corners of my home? (again, sorry about the pictures, it is raining after all...)
in the jar are the most amazing rock candies from my friends wedding a few weekends ago

after a bit of lunch, i sat with my book on the beach while ollie played, dug holes and drove his dump truck around.
how did you spend your saturday?
it seems like forever ago that I stumbled across my very first blog. it was full of amazing pictures, creative crafting and interesting snippets from the author and her family's life. now, a few years on, she is one of my closest and dearest friends, and after some gentle nudging and encouragement from her, I have decided to write my own blog.
so here it is. it may need some tweaking, my posts my not be the most unsightful things you will read, and my apologies if I become rather sporadic with my updates, but I say welcome to my life and thank you for having me here with you. xx
