Shop in Brisbane or online...

We've been busy cutting, folding, packing all weekend and we're almost ready to hop on the plane. Before we go we're doing a class in lace making, the old school type... tea lady style :) how cool!

Lara & Teegs will fly out on Tuesday to setup and man the stall on Wednesday and I will fly out on Wednesday evening to be there from Thursday til Sunday. How exciting... I hope we have enough stock...

Please come and visit us at the Brisbane Stitches and Craft show... and for those who are left behind, I just updated the shop with a whole lot of mixpacks. All orders will be sent out when we get back, which is after the 5th of May.

See you in Brisbane! or when we get back :)

Stitches & Craft show Brisbane

We're very busy cutting, folding, packing and making to-do and to-take lists.

Here are some pretty stack shots.

Most of the fabric will be coming with me (pre-cut) to Brisbane... We're fully stocked and crossing our fingers that it's going to fit in 3 suitcases.

Oh and I almost forgot... these fabrics are also available in our shop. I believe the other girls will also stock up our shop soon... either before or after the show. Please know that we won't be able to post anything while we're in Brisbane, so you might have to wait a little bit longer ;)

Wedding Photography

On the weekend we dropped off some 600+ wedding photos and a bottle of bubbly to a very happy couple and I thought I should share some of Marcel's great work with you. He takes commercial photos during the week, but also takes beautiful wedding photos for friends, family and everyone else who asks ;) (ie. you, your friends & family?)

This weekend he'll be taking photos at a wedding in Adelaide and I'm excited to see his beautiful photos when he gets back.

Going home...

My dad emailed me yesterday that ticket prices dropped, and I started hunting for a ticket straight away. My best friend is getting married in June and I had already 'given up' on going as ticket prices were just too high... well, that changed yesterday. After an hour on skype with mum, I booked my ticket home from 17 June til 7 July. I'm sooooo excited and so is my best friend. She's the first one to get married and I'm over the moon that I can be part of her special day.

Of course I'm already worrying about what to wear etc. It'll be summer in Europe then so I'll be wearing a dress :) for which I went shopping today (unconsciously). The real reason I went out was because of reading about this lovely shop, on this lovely blog. I just had to go... and came home with a dress (sorry no pics) and some vintage nik naks.

Southern Grampians...

We're back from our trip to the Southern Grampians. It was great to be away for a few days but unfortunately Marcel got a fever on Sunday, so we couldn't enjoy ourselves completely.

Mt Sturgeon & Mt Abrubt

We left Friday morning and had lunch at Dunkeld's fantastic Royal Mail Hotel. It's definitely a beautiful location and the food was delicious too. Marcel and I got together in the Grampians so we have a strong connection with it. It was great to be back.

Nigretta Falls (which doesn't flow...)

Our accommodation was in Hamilton, which is a very charming country city. We had breakfast at the darriwill farm cafe which was so yum. I also bought raspberry & kirsch jam and lemon & caper mayonaise in their shop, gotta love deli goodies.

Me & Marcel in the botanic gardens

We visited many of the historic towns, dry waterfalls, empty lakes (it's shocking and sad to see how much water has vanished) and strolled through the botanic gardens. The Southern Grampians is a lovely place for a holiday and we'll definitely go back there.
