I’m in rainy, cloudy, cold Melbourne today and loving it. There’s just something nice about the beginnings of winter. All rugged up. Crispy air. Long boots. Warm pubs.
What’s even better about today is that I’ve discovered a new fabric heaven on Coventry Street in South Melbourne. The Made in Japan outlet has Kimono fabric remnants by the metre. What a find! So I bought this bright yellow to go on the ears of woolly grey and black sock dogs. I’ve been quite drawn to yellow/grey combinations lately. Oooh I haven’t been this excited about a fabric find for a long time.
In other news I went to my first session of The Craft Room (by the lovely Corrie of Retromummy) last night up on the Northern Beaches. So much fun. I haven’t ever been to a crafty circle thing before so I wasn’t sure what to expect – it was wonderful! I sat chatting away to the lovely Fran, Sophie, Kelly and Amelia all of whom were working on beautiful things. Love a bit of stitch and bitch.
