belated present #2_ peachy pouch

in between watching project runway season 5 and more baking, i put together a small pouch for belated present #2. this was tailored for a girly (but not too girly) chick, hence the hidden print inside.
mmm, i'm a big fan of the red stripey linen trim...
but i can't bear to use these gorgeous shinzi katoh linen trims just yet... *warning* clicking on katoh's website may cause excessive drooling...

getting cushy

project: belated present #1
i spent the day catching up with season 3 of the mighty boosh and making my first set of cushion covers. these are to be a housewarming gift; i'm visualising these cushions on c's gorgeous chaise longue, reupholstered in red velvet (!) - how swish!

found a lovely tablecloth at the op shop to match the raindrop print, i do love those autumnal colours...

it's been a great, lazy, computer-less week as a lady of leisure (l.o.l.). my shoulders have dropped and i've done away with the deep heat. my posture is shameful, and my shoulders ached and ached during my writing up time...i'm such an old lady!

more importantly, i have been hanging out with my fam and friends, went to the patchy Art Deco exhibition at the NGV (gorgeous dresses though), and have been catching up on recommended flicks and much missed reading ... so good!

i started unpacking some boxes from our mid-april move and rediscovered some beads and bits (it's been ages!). i don't have pierced ears so i'm not really sure if these would work or not in real- life ear-holes, but it's fun to play. the spears are so elegant
i found these cute beads when i was in Porto two years ago. mmm, maybe a smaller chain? it seems too heavy to me...

and i've been meaning to do something, anything with these gorgeous beads for ages..i'm not ready for reality yet...
