Monday

monday

a new little basket . found. waiting for me. for my basket family.

Veda has so many wonderful ideas in her head. Aerial snapshot of one such idea.

my favourite pattern book and dress.


i recently came out of my sewing cocoon to make a new one.


how i love nice mail. and how we love ponyo. now we are almost ready to start the year...
and the new nani iro pattern book has no patterns to trace. did i get ripped off or is nani iro playing with me?

Hi Posie
It flatters my mumsy shape :-)
Minda..photo of half of the book up there in calendar photo.. it has detailed pictures with measurements but no patterns- seemed strange. and you can have my dress if you come and get it. xo

Oh your dress is wonderful with pretty sleeves and an empire line and a lovely neck and gorgeous cool looking fabric. I've been dreaming of dressmaking with some Manda printed fabric. One day we must meet again and I must get some off you...please... XX

I love your dress too & the fabric is lovely. Veda's creation is sweet, & your little basket is a dear, little addition. Hope the last week of holidays is fun xo

The fabric was a happy find at spotlight.. wishing you all a happy last few days of holidays before the school madness (and peace on the flipside ) begins xx

Manda I love the dress! Can you tell me what the pattern is? I might try and see if I can get it here in NZ as I would like to make one myself. Thanks
