I just found this on the blog of some fellow creative and talented Tasmanians, Pip Stafford & Emma-Jean Gilmour...and its a total classic:

I feel so much better now I know how to make tea Properly ;-)

Help Haiti

I just wanted to let you know that I've added a link on the side (to the left) on this blog which comes from Ellie Brown at International Medical Corps:

Please help Haiti deal with its current disaster by donating so that more medical assistance and food aid can reach them as soon as possible.

Many thanks and feel free to pass this information on to anyone you think may be able to help too.

Bienvenue chez 2010!!

A slow & calm start to the year, which is very uncharacteristic of me and matches my slower pace of life now I'm pregnant. I'm learning to embrace the transformation process and not feel guilty that I don't want to work 28 hours straight on an embroidery anymore!!

A couple of exciting things have happened to start the year off and they are:

A five page feature on my work, my home and me in Australian House & Garden magazine (February issue out now), from page 54,


A couple of my Summer collection cushions are featured on page 46 in Vogue Living Jan/Feb 2010, in an image of the wonderful Monique Germon's POP-UP CO-OP store project with Sarah King & Tamara Maynes, in Bowral, New South Wales. My 'Tea For Life' cosy is in the second image.

On the tea cosy front I have several half-finished cosies which greet me every morning and are just asking to be I'm working away at some retail orders and once they're done and mailed off I can 'treat' myself to some tea cosy stitching!
Can't wait!! I do wish there were more hours in each day and that I could afford to employ people to sew for me as well...this WILL happen, maybe next year if I don't lose my mind being a mother ;-)(Do I sound slightly apprehensive?!)
