Sunday Sunday.

Its Sunday morning.
Bren is picking vegies for the farm shop, Indi is at Lola's house and Jazzy and Pepper are making an extravagant sand tea party outside.

I am dyeing some yarn.

It looks more grey than the charcoal I had hoped for, but I like it.

It reminds me a bit of Bren's dreadlocks when we first met.
He had 81 of them. He still has them in a box under the house.
I wonder if the girls would like to see them.

Yesterday we were hanging out here, when a woman admired Pepper's tree dress.

When I told her I had made it she asked if I could make some stock for her to sell in her shop.

I was pretty excited!

The girls were far too busy choosing a lolly to care.

Today I'm crocheting butterflies and motifs trying to work out the best way to winterfy my dresses. I want to keep sewing with the vintage linens and maybe mix in some denim or cord, long sleeves and lots of crochet embellishments.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. XX


  1. That's lovely that someone loved your work so much to want to stock it then and there.

    Gorgeous photos.

    Nothing says winter more to me than a lovely soft corduroy. I can see it with your crochet.

    Enjoy your Sunday.

  2. Can't wait to see some of your winter creations, those motifs are just gorgeous!

  3. LOL Your comment about Bren's dreadlocks.....mine are still on my head but it made me wonder if I would be keeping them later in a box for show and tell??? Love the dying it looks good and can't wait to see the corduroy and crochet together. Great news about a selling outlet, you had better get to the sewing machine :-)

  4. That news on someone wanting to stock your creations. Lovely crochet too, very pretty.

    I cracked up about the dreads. Imagine if your girls found them under the house, they would wonder what on earth they are LOL

  5. Well done you - I'm not surprised - your dresses are lovely! Nic xx

  6. The world is sitting up and taking notice!!! You shouldn't be too surprised.

  8. hmmm, dreads under the house?
    Get sewing and get that shop stocked, it sounds great.

  9. SO exciting about the shop and order Kate, though I'm not at all surprised. Your creations are beautiful.
    Looking forward to what you come up with from winter, liking the sound of cord and denim with crochet very much.
    I think it's funny and cute that Bren kept his dreads, defintely something to show the kids. XO
