The Owls are back in town....................hoot hoot!

Every year due to popular demand
I do a range of Owl purses.

This years Owl Purse's have just been finished.

I must confess I really enjoyed making these wise, colourful owls.

They are now all loaded in my online store

Last years Pixie making class was so successful that I have decided to do another one this year with help from my lovely friend Kate.

The details are:
Thursday the 24th of October from 7 to 9pm I will take a Pixie making class at the Grey Lynn Community Centre in the Oval room.
The cost will be $45.00 and will include all the supplies.
All you will need to bring is scissors.

Do not worry if you have very basic sewing skills. 
The lovely Kate will sit with the first time sewers to  help provide any extra guidance needed.

If you would like to do this class can you please email me to book a spot on:

If you have a preference as to what colour pixie you wish to make can you please let me know in your email. You can do pretty much any colour in the rainbow. 
I will have extra colours cut out on the night if you want to change your chosen colour. 
This is just a guide to help me cut out as many of the right colour shades as possible.

The Oval Room is nice and cosy so there will be a limit of 15 spaces for this class. 
Please note I will only be doing the one class this year, so do get in quick.

Art Fusion

I have spent the last few weeks working
on designs for "Art Fusion"

I feel that I have made some of my nicest cushions.
I dropped them all off at Art Fusion on Sunday.

The lovely ladies from Carmel Collage are now getting everything ready for the 
big weekend this weekend.
They have some work by amazing artists and crafters.

So if you live in Auckland and are free do go take a peak,
you will see some beautiful things.
It is a gold coin donation to go on Saturday or Sunday.

Here are all the details.

Here are some pictures of a few of the cushions.

I have had so much on in the past few weeks that I have not
had a chance to go looking for blankets.

So I asked my lovely parents who are retired to go hunting in
the op shops for blankets for me.

I gave them a list of colours I would like and told them what to
look for in a good blanket.

My mother rang 24 hours later to say they had found some wonderful
.......................................................PURPLE blankets.

I hardly ever work with purple as it is not a colour I am drawn to at all.
But my mother pointed out to me that maybe she found purple blankets
for a reason and that maybe I was meant to work with purple.

I ended up being really pleasantly surprised.
What do you think?

All the above creations are off to
