Other than Polkadot Lane bags, I have been making other 'little' projects to keep me happy and my brain ticking over creatively.
This little dress (Frida pattern - Modkid) is in Size 2/3 and was sent off to little Matilda in Adelaide, my oldest friend's little girl. From what I hear, she loves it, which is just great.
I'm quite in love with the blue, red and white combo...
I made my very first batch of profiteroles the other day, and they tasted fine but were all different shapes and sizes. After a bit of googling on technique, I did a second batch which turned out a lot more uniform. This is them, and yes, I shaped them into a heart for our anniversary (I know..cheesy :-P, but romantic too!).
It's actually a bit of a test really, as I want to do one on a grander scale for a future party, but can you picture it about 2-3 times this size, with fresh flowers popped in and around...could look pretty fabulous, don't you think???
A knitted bow, attached to a fabric covered headband for Alannah..
One happy customer there...
And a little felt, fabric and hand-stitching for a friend, and her new bubba Elliot...
Also on the go is an oil & acrylic painting that I'm working on, but it's quite big so it will probably take me a while to finish, and I'm knitting my very first piece of clothing - a little hooded jumper for Levi. I have the back & front finished, and I've nearly finished the first sleeve. Huge learning curve for me, as I had never increased or decreased before, so I'm happy as it's a new challenge that I have been able to meet - yay!
Now, I am off to sew up a couple of custom orders while Levi sleeps, and the other two are otherwise occupied.
