Missing in action

It has been a couple of weeks since I last posted. Kids' illnesses have set me back a bit but hopefully we can get back on track now that everyone is (mostly!) better.

Gret from the lovely little red ribbon has a giveaway on her blog at the moment - a sweet little coin purse handcrafted from linen and vintage embroidery. Head over here and leave a comment, and it could be yours!

One for the birds

Not only do I have a thing for trees at the moment... and anything red.... but also birds. Sometimes I like to combine all three. Right now I'm wearing a cord necklace with a red metal bird on a gate motif - found last week at the National Portrait Gallery shop (the BEST shop for gifts in Canberra, surely?). Made by Elk. Their jewellery is delicious. I could easily take it all home.

Something else I've found - Indiefixx Feed Your Soul, a great art site with free downloadable pictures you can print out to your heart's content. Luckily for me there is an abundance of birds on board. Here are a couple of my favourites.

And finally, a peek at the Helleborus-in-progress. Going well so far - I'd say I'm nearly at the halfway point, and it hasn't been too painful (despite Terhi's warning of death-by-boredom-scarf).
