for Natasha

Supersoft brown wool i am knitting into a neck warmer. It is very fine and i am using 3mm needles...so while it takes a bit longer to knit, the end product looks better and is denser and warmer. The buttons are clear with orange/red rose inserts.


These are three of my favourite possessions that take residence in my room a the farm.

1. Glazed Owl Vessel
My friend Kate Archdeacon made this for me. I love the size and weight, the etched detail of the owl and i especially like the glaze!

2.Unfinished painting
Margot Kroyer Pedersen, part of a calendar that never went ahead. I love the wrens, that it still has pencil ruled lines for layout plans and my nanna mounted it.---excuse the flash...ahhh---

3. Scarf
Another item made by Kate Archdeacon. Fantastically warm and soft, love the soft grey check on one side and the solid grey with hand embroidered ducks on the reverse.

Present for a friends Birthday (very very belated now, oops)

Transfer print onto calico, stuffed with suri fleece.

The left kidney is edged with black beading, black thread and is stuffed with Ferdie's fleece.
The Right Kidney uses cream thread and faux pearl beading and is filled with Grace Jones's fleece.

They can be kept as a pair and worn together or singular....or keep one and give the other to your sweetheart, friend or family member.

The Bad Seed

I wanted to thank my friend for writing an article about my stuff, so i made her 'The Bad Seed' a felt version of Nick Cave's moustache.
The stache is made from hand made felt (Alpaca of course) sewn over a card substrate. Nick was a quick sketch in illustrator.

new catalogue

This still needs work, but i like it better than the old one. The stitching is a mess!
I'm in love with the cover and have been using the deer sketch for heaps of other things.
