Creative life - another great cartoon

What I Think, What I Say

I am not sure where this cartoon comes from - it seems to have many sources on the web.  But it is perfect, especially if you have a tendency for introversion!

Skirt of the week - Poppies for ANZACs

 I was so happy when I was able to get more of this Poppies fabric - it is beautiful and with New Zealand and Australia just celebrating Anzac day it seems particularly apt.

We will be at Underground Market on Wellington's waterfront again this Saturday 10am-4pm and of course they are available online at  Just click on a skirt to go through to the skirts page!

merino scarf?

Merino cowl scarf 

Time to be thinking about some nice warm merino scarves?  

We are at Underground Market in Frank Kitts Park on the Waterfront this Saturday 10am-4pm and then at Pataka in Porirua on Sunday 11am-3pm. The weather forecast isn't good but we are under cover at Frank Kitts and Pataka is beautiful and warm. Or you can buy online of course - just click on the photo!

Masterchef for sewers

The Great British Sewing Bee is like Masterchef for sewers and has just started in the UK.  No doubt it will get here sooner or later.  The format is the usual - a bunch of enthusiastic amateurs who make things and get sent home one-by-one by the judges.  The first programme is available here on Youtube -

Here are the judges...   

and here are the contestants ...

What do you think?  Would you do it?

The belle frock went to Sydney ...

Here are some fabulous photos of the new Minnie + Ree Belle Frock.  Each of these cotton dresses is appliqued with hand stitching so they are all different.  

Our favourite photo is this one:

Here's some Sydney icons - sadly we don't need a disclaimer, this photo shoot was not funded by a Sydney tourism promoter!!

And here's our favourite photo again but in an urban mood compilation that appears on the website.

Minnie + Ree's new Belle Frock. It's pure cotton and is a beautiful bell shape with huge pockets and hand-stitched applique. It is the perfect summertime dress and when it gets cooler you can warm it up with a slip and/or tights underneath and a cardigan on top. Each frock in the applique range is different. 

The first Belle Frocks are on the website:
