Nikki's book is here. I've been longing to see the finished product, as I have been following her progress with this most exciting project. I was so excited last week when I got this copy in the post. I was lucky enough to be a pattern tester for a few of Nikki's patterns. She is the "master" of bag patterns, and is very adventurous with clothing. The skirt in this book just makes me want to rush into the sewing room and cut one out. It is GORGEOUS! Thanks SO MUCH Nikki. I hear a rumour that it will be available for sale at the Quilt Convention next week in Melbourne, or you can get your own copy over here right now. A fabulous book and great addition to any crafters library.
We're having REAL AUTUMN type weather at the moment. I'm loving the changing colour in the gardens, both mine, and all over town. I'm officially on holidays now for 2 glorious weeks, so I am intending on sharing my time between the garden and the sewing room.
Now, if you use pea straw in your garden, and don't tend to get to all your garden jobs perhaps as often as you should, like me, you will be rewarded with these beautiful pea flowers.
I have them popping up all over the place, and am loving them.
This hydrangea is making one last "hurrah", before it's time for a winter sleep.
