neutrals and celebrations

One very beautiful addition to my stash this week, a gorgeous neutral charm pack from Karen Lewis Textiles. I love her new prints and I will be adding these to my collection of Karen's fabrics! 

We have had a really busy weekend with lots of family fun as it was Lois' 4th birthday! I can't believe how quickly they grow. I loved seeing her joy in small things like cake and banners but her favourite thing had to be the humongous unicorn my sister got her!! My Dad and Nan came over to take us for a pub lunch, then we went to my mums for some games and cake. We also went to see Moana, which was really good and I might need to get the soundtrack.

On Saturday night my husband and were treated to a meal to celebrate a friend's birthday. We had an incredible 14 course meal at Manchester House. I had the vegetarian menu and it was utterly delicious! I've never eaten food like it. I was so full that we had to have the 14th course (a dessert) to take home. An amazing experience!

I am working on lots of secret sewing at the moment, some of which will be revealed later this week!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend :)



  1. I love Karen's fabrics, but I only have a few in my stash... might have to change that ;) Happy belated birthday to your little one!

  2. I bought the Moana soundtrack - I now have permanent ear worms from the various tracks. It's just too catchy - you have been warned :)

  3. I love the patterns in the Karen Lewis prints, enjoy!

  4. I didn't think dead flies were vegetarian!

    1. 😆 no mine was the one on the right! Mostly apple!

  5. Your weekend sounds like lot of fun and your new fabrics are so beautiful! x Teje

  6. Lois is 4!!! Where do the years go? It looks like everyone had a great time! And that meal looks incredible- one to remember for a long time!
