Ooo - spring is here, hubby has the barby out and all nicely cleaned, the patio heater has been put away until next winter, and the pool is looking blue.

I put out my new oilcloth tablecloth - nice and bright and ready for the ketchup and bbq sauce.

We have some gorgeous oilcloth vinyls for tablecloths in store,  pop in and take a look, and they dont cost the earth and we can cut the length you require to the nearest 10cms.

Marimekko Wall Art - Sunny Sunday

This is what sundays are made of - nippers first thing in the morning, a gynastics gala in the afternoon, and then the movies, what more can you do in a day i ask myself.

Well, our renovations have just started so im taking all my canvases off the wall and putting them away, so the dust doesnt get them.   Although if the electricians work is anything to go by, I think I might go into storage aswell......

My lovely Marimekko canvas in sunshine orange and yellow is going into storage upstairs, it will be so nice to get it back out in the new year and I will run up some bright new cushions in Mini Marimekko to match.

Heres to a good week of work, cleaning and sewing loads of cushions

Giveaway - Early Christmas Present Time


Choose an apron and it could be yours, for entry conditions see below.....

Girly Hibiscus Apron, with pretty grossgrain ties

Ships and Lighthouses, make cooking and painting fun

Now heres a great chance to win one of these gorgeous kiddies aprons. (Size for 6yr old)

The pink is Hibiscus Mexican Oilcloth and the apron below is Nautical Oilcloth.  Both beautifully hand made by me.  I had a sewing frenzy last week, as I hadnt sewn for a couple of days.  Its too hazardous getting the sewing machine switched on with my boys around.  Although, having said that, the little fella is quite steady for a left hander, not the easiest when it comes to scissors and things.  But i gave him some striped fabric, so he had lines to follow and he did really well.

Any way back to the GIVEAWAY.  Easy Peasy - heres how to win one -

1.   Leave a comment on which one you would like to win.
2.   Follow my blog, but not compulsory of course.
3.   Have a tweet about the giveaway, for a second entry.

The winner will be randomly drawn on the 1st November.

Both aprons are now listed in my store, I also have the pattern listed in haberdashery.

Thank you for entering, in advance.

Marimekko lamp cover ~ a creative weekend

Well, apart from being a seriously busy weekend, a short BBQ event, a night out to see Hale and Pace at Twin Towns, where i almost split my sides with laughter, i have had time to cover my old lamp with some Mini Marimekko in the stunning blue/white colourway.

I must say im really pleaseed with the result. We had deocorated a while back and as usual I never get round to finishing what I start. So for some reason, this weekend was the one.

It was so easy to do and didnt take more than about 45 mins from beginning to end. Well had to pop to Bunnings of course to get some PVA glue, as the kiddies had some how used all the previous 2 litre bottle I was secretly hiding for a rainy day.

I cut and measured and rolled the drum over the fabric and glued on the inside flap and hey, a new lap. Quite pleased with it I must say.

All I need now is a canvas and some cushions to match and a new sofa, and nice new shiney rug and..............................................................................................

Have a fabulous creative week.
