What I have been up to.

Holey scarf in Pilgrim colourway with tissue silk.

Bowl with hand dyed scrim/ muslin nuno-ed.

Bowl with hand stitching. circles were cut from prefelt ( oops felt), applied as last layer.

Looking more washed out than it is- same kind of bowl with chain stitch as embellishment using Mulberry Silks silk thread which is a dream- supplied by The Thread Studio.

Well, a lot it seems to me! As promised- photos of the cake for Madelen's 21st. We didn't cut it after all. She liked it so much, she took it home with her intact for the next nights celebration with her friends. Most of them seem to be Stargate fans as well. Bri helped enormously in making the cake and I got to pass on some of the things I had learnt about cake decorating from my Mother. That was kind of nice too. I only got one photo of Madelen opening her Stargate figurines I found in a shop in Tasmania. She squealed so I think that meant she liked them.
The little felt bowls were samples I played with in Tasmania. I like making them but love using them. I always have little bits of everything that need to be put somewhere!
The weekend is shaping up to be hellish. Belle's dance concert is tomorrow night and I have to be a helper- what do I know about sequins? Bri has her best friend's 16th party to go to. Next night is her formal and after party, Saturday is extra kids over.....And worst of all.....I am out of decent coffee. I need a little lie down....


  1. Get more coffee. Sew sequins on with Nymo beading thread or something equally strong so that they don't pop off at inopportune moments. Lovely little bowls :)

  2. Wow, awesome cake, beautiful scarf and wonderful bowls!!

  3. The last one of bowl is typically beautiful. Love the color so much.

  4. Thanks ladies,
    Concert went well, now for the formal!

  5. Jacinta, the cake is beautiful!!! Congratulations to your daughter, and you of course.......LOL..... I adore the felted bowls and scarf. How much is left in that bottle of Tequila [one tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor.....???] Sounds like you have been extremely busy, but this is the silly season is it not.. Take care, happy holidays.
