one: the one where you and your pals all have books out!
two: this little suitcase contained my pompom arsenal for Wednesday’s workshop
three: Riberty frogs – from my new book (made from Liberty prints, of course!)
four: fabric paint for my latest project
Sunday arvo rolls around again, so it must be time for One + Four = Life. The idea is to share four photos that sum up one week of your life (the week just gone).
One (week) + Four (photos) = (your) Life. It’s a kind of photographic algebra, isn’t it? Or not. Here’s my week.
I’m so happy to have a book sitting alongside some books my friends wrote. It just goes to show that if you work hard and work good, you really can do the things you want to do. (Books were the things we wanted to do!)
A little suitcase. On Wednesday night I led a pompom workshop at Readings Books in St Kilda. It was such a great, fun night. Ladies of all kinds popped by and we all pompommed along merrily. We used the template from my book and also had a go at the Clover pompom makers too. HEAPS. O. FUN.
Rin (my daughter) calls these Riberty Frogs which is funny and apt because they are made from some of my favourite Liberty Fabrics. These are also from my book, but I am sure you know how to make ’em. I just wanted to put a pretty spin on a favourite kindergarten classic – cue RIBERTY FROGS!
I’ve been working on a really adorable project using these fabric paints. I will tell you more about that soon. It turned out super-cute! The yellow is such a nice sunshine-meets-mustard colour.
