I love organisation although many who know me think I dont. But I really do.

For so long i have been keeping my floss in a large pencil case. This was a nightmare, they all got tangled up and it was a mess. 

Thats where my new found organisation has come from. I bought myself this lovely box from the $2 shop and floss cards from spotlight and I am now on my way to embroidery floss organisational heaven!

It already looks so damn good.

How do you organise your embroidery floss?

Project Life - Week 1

Over the last few months I have discovered this amazing thing called project life. Many people use the idea of project life in their own ways. But the point of project life for me is to document my life with a picture a day. Hopefully this will be a regular thing on my blog. Finding the time to blog is getting harder.

September 30 - October 1

Fancy family dinner, feels like Christmas.


Spring is just around the corner and so is my vegie garden.


Beautiful white cherry blossoms. I really love these trees


My ferocious feline.


More fabric! start of a new project. More of this to come.

Its been a while since I have posted anything. That being because I have hardly had time to sew. We have had family from Ireland staying with us for the last month so the sewing room was turned into a spare room and my house has been turned upside down!

But that doesnt mean I can't stash!!

Look at this yummy bundle of flannely goodness I gave in to!
I still don't know what i am going to do with it, but it will be cozy for sure.

May have went a little crazy at spotlight.


How can anyone resists these!

Went to the Brisbane Art Gallery and had a look at the Quilts 1700 - 1945 collection currently in its last few days. It was very interesting and amazing to see that things haven't really changed that much.

Picked up these books that I have been eyeing off for years.

And lastly I made this little pouch. I am very addicted to making these now they are so easy. 

But for now thats all i have to share. 

Till next week when i get my house back and i am on holidays for three weeks. Let the sewing begin!!
