Firstly, I would like to thank you all for your wonderful comments about Du Jour – I was blown away by all the lovely comments and feedback I received. For those of you that were interested, I believe it should be arriving in book stores around Australia this week and is available on line from the publisher.
I had my first ever blog meet this morning, with the lovely Janelle from Threads of Friendship. It was wonderful to meet a kindred spirit!! Janelle and I share a love of Farmers Market fabric and have been sourcing it from various stores around Perth. We had a fabric exchange and here are the lovely pieces I received to add to my stash!
I am starting to think more about Christmas recently and have been working on updating my decorations. I have made a collection of yo yo ornaments to hang on the tree.
I have also used up more of my paint cards to make these quick paper balls. They are easily constructed by cutting strips of paper/card. Punch a hole in each end. Join 8 – 10 strips together with a brad at each end and then fan into a ball shape. I attached some silver thread so they can be hung from the tree. These are a great quick kids craft and can also be made out of used Christmas cards or any card that you have on hand.
Edit: A wooden tree, similar to the one used with the yo yo’s, is available in Australia from Adairs.
