Weekend bliss

Recently we had a trip to the city gardens
We walked, rode and scootered across the foot bridge over the river
to the gardens

We watched ducks being fed and water dragons lazing in the Autumn sun

We pondered mirrored sculptures

And were amazed at how green and nurturing this little sanctuary is in the middle of the city

Pincushion Swap

This my mushroom pincushion for this months sewing challenge in my Facebook sewing group.
I love the tiny fairy door and glittery purple felt, there are tiny flowers and vines growing up the sides too.
All handsewn and stuffed firmly with wool. I got the pattern from The little house by the sea , and although we used the same pattern mine looks very different to hers! I can't wait to make more and next time I'll be using the sewing machine to do the seams! It might not take half a day then, I'm so slow at handstitching anything!

The smallest mermaid

Here is gorgeous Jory by Veelana at Veelana's Design wearing his shiny blue mermaid fins made by me :-) He has a tiny little body with jointed arms, super soft wisps of hair and a cute pixie like face. He is much more adorable in real life. When my Amber saw him she squealed in delight. So the first thing I made him were some mermaid fins, cos we are very much in love with mermaids in our house. I love how they turned out too, especially since in the past I have found sewing satin pretty challenging. Now I'm dreaming of creating mermaid fins in colours of the rainbow :-)

Old Texas Town

Four hours drive from home is a country town called Texas

A place of adventures in nature

A family property with a creek running slowly through it

Hopeful fishermen


A long abandoned main street of shops claimed by flood waters

A patient husband


If only I'd had boots I would have been inside exploring

A new moved main street

Family of fellow land lovers

Amazing sunrises and sunsets
