I had to add this photo of a new fabric I purchased yesterday at Patchwork on Central Park - my super favourite fabric store. Thank you Effie for showing me the stunning piece of Liberty fabric I made these ties from ... super pretty greens - sage green to turquoise, and delicate pinks in the usual stunning blend that only Liberty can create.
It's a beautiful sunny morning here today in Melbourne.
After a super long weekend, ANZAC Day last Thursday, then Friday was a Curriculum Day at the children's school, then of course the weekend, I feel like I can finally sit and catch my breath today.
After drop off I took off to my new Pilates class, it's time to work on my health, my back, my strength and my fitness, then home to do some photo editing and eat breakfast. I've decided to take better care of myself, with my third and final child starting school this year it's time to focus on me, not an uncommon thig I know at my life stage. Diet, fitness, mental health, goals and career are all coming into focus and I want to be the best I can be.
One thing I have grown to love lately is brunch. It's a new obsession. So as such I'm going to share one brunch with you a week .. here is my usual morning meal when I am home. So so yummy. Cereal (usually Be Natural) Blueberries, Yoghurt, Chia seeds and milk. Mmmmmmmmmm.
What do you like to make yourself for breakfast when you have the time?
I recently found some amazing new fabrics in black and metallic gold and I'm super loving how they work out looking as hair ties and necklaces!
Here are a few pics, a couple of the necklaces are sold but I'll be making a bunch more once the school holidays are done. We are also still in the last stages of our huge renovation sanding and polishing floors and creating and installing stair railings (at last!) .. so will be hiding out of town for the rest of the week while that goes ahead.
Enjoy the pics and the song below .. black and gold .. it really will be the colour combination of winter. XX
I've finally had a few hours to myself and knocked out a few new sets .. I love making these and I've missed spending time with my fabrics. These make ideal pressies for teachers, and for friends and family living away as they slot nicely inside a Christmas card .. also the perfect size for a Christmas Stocking.
They can be found in my Etsy store (click to the right!) and if you would like me to make you a set from any fabric from my store please just ask! XX Jo
One product above and beyond all of my pieces has a standout reputation, yes my Geometric Bright Ear Studs. With almost four thousand views, almost a thousand favourites and on a ridiculous number of Treasury Lists I seemed to have hit the jackpot in terms of making something that is very funky and now, while also making lots of classic pretty pieces using the divine Liberty fabrics.
Geometric is all over the fashion and art world lately, in lovely brights, muted pastels and also in good old monochrome - I have used variations of Liberty of London fabrics to make up a few fun pieces, if you'd like something custom made in any of them, just ask! Happy Friday everyone.
I'll leave you with a Friday tune, this is my son's favourite and suits the Geometric theme perfectly. XX
