A suitable day

While in Hong Kong, BM got a suit made and fitted. I went along for the experience and got a bit snap happy - oh the fabrics! We went into the tailors at 10am and choose fabrics and BM got measured. We returned at 3pm for a fitting and the final suit will get mailed home.

Fitting of one of the shirts and the trousers.

This is the semi-finished suit.

Hong Kong I

Tall buildings (in a single bound)

Incense in a temple


And more temples

Boxes and buttons

I've been carefully storing storage containers for a while and in my effort to sort my craft room this is one of those containers with a memory attached. A Valentine's box from BM. He's a sweetie!

Quigley the cat toy

I made one of these from fabric scraps from a skirt I have yet to even pretend to blog about and one of my friends just got a new cat (there's photos of the cat and the toy online somewhere which I need to track down to post!). I dosed it with a lot of catnip and filled it with more fabric scraps, used up old gold thread and a bouncy string that was clogging up my sewing bag for a while.

Quigley is a clever though, he made it into the cupboard!

Slowly organising my crafting space

I'm enjoying organising my crafting room - way more than is healthy for a young lady.

More creations from my old PJs (ssssssssshh! Don't tell the receipents!). This time an owl from scratch.

It turned out really well and I'll be making more of these -definitely!


I'm nearly finished the first three balls of wool and will soon have to start thinking about the next set of colours!
