K is Kickin'!

Welcome to a new week!

How was your weekend?
Mine was great.

We had a lovely time celebrating Steve's birthday... we started with a delicious (as always) brekkie at our favourite Wellington cafe, Nikau. Then we went for a walk around the inlet out here in the 'Bay' and finished the day with a scrummy fish stew.

Steve's birthday's always last about two weeks (I don't know how he manages it but we seem to celebrate it for ages!!) and we will be having a party to celebrate with friends next weekend. And....

I have a new nephew - yay! he was born on Thursday night and his name is Leo. I can't wait to meet him - it will be a while until that happens though as I don't think we will get to see him until December because he lives about 5 hours away... all the same I am super happy for my brother, his partner and son : )

So, where are we at in this alphabet of ours?? K. and some fab goodies to be had!! - enjoy!


I am adoring this collection from KupKup. Kima, it's creator is so talented, and it appears she can make and do anything with felt! - Check out her fabulous pin cushions (second image down) and her amazing collages... I like! Her store is definitely worth a visit! Have a look:

Kristen Doran

Kristen Doran is one of my 'Dream Team' of Australian textile printers. Her work is found in all the good Australian fabric shops - like Duckcloth and Kelani Fabric Obsession.. and this year she released a new book "Craft to Inspire".

Kristen's work makes crafting easy...not only does she hand print beautiful fabric available by the metre, she also prints fabric to craft with - like her
Matryoshka doll fabric which is sold by the piece and can be used for a variety of projects...

Kristen also does some super cute prints for Sprout Design - like the squirrel, tree and bird print below (fourth image down)... have a look:
