In the neighborhood

I have to admit when we bought our house I barely acknowledged that there was a little park right at the bottom of our road. Since moving I am so appreciative of this little urban oasis, its great to be able to throw my work bag in the door (literally!!!) at the end of a day grab the furbabies and be strolling around the park two minutes later.

Embroidered Apron

I finally got the chance to use one of the lovely designs from the 'Sublime Stitching Embroidered Effects' book (by Jennifer Hart). I decided to make an Apron as part of  my mums birthday present and thought this gorgeous peacock pattern would make it that bit more special. Heres a few pictures of how it came together.

Our Living Room

I posted back in October about how excited I was to be getting a Sanna Annukka print (Spirits of the North) for my anniversary. Here is a little peak of where it now lives! I absolutely love it.
