What to take...

on a road trip that involves some flying too?

Mr PnP and I are off to New Zealand for 3+ weeks 


Now that the cabled jacket is complete...

I've returned to my embroidery...

Don't ask me what those black dots are?

a hoop I've been working on for months...

front ...

and a better idea of the colours from the back.

Now, where did I put that pattern?

I'm thinking I might take this drawing 

Anna Maria Horner did for me back in June?

I'll make it into a bag of some sort when I get 


using these fabrics. 

And maybe I'll take one of these cute panels, 

I picked up this week!

 adding some back and satin stitch and French knots 

here and there.

See you in November!

Happy days....

Clothes Sewing

I've recently shared some clothes I have been 


Today I wanted to show how they look when I'm 

wearing them.....

 This was a selfie I set up in my office at work, using 

the timer on my camera.

                     I love how this turned out! 

Even if Mr PnP says it 

looks like a patchwork quilt!

I guess that's own of the reasons I loved the fabric

in the first place!

There's nothing that says 'old lady' more than 

chubby elbows!

Yes, I know the shoes are not right but I've also 

decided this one is too long!

 So I have since cut off at least 2 inches from the 

hem and it looks way better!

And look....

I found the perfect sandal too!

Finally, I recently helped my sister make her own

Lacey dress....

This was also made from the Stylearc pattern.

Didn't she do an awesome job?

There was even enough fabric leftover for a top...

from the same pattern, no less!

It has side splits and a spotted watermelon binding 

on the neck.

I have created a separate page for my clothes 


if you are interested.

(Patterns are by Vogue and Stylearc)

Happy days!
