on my desk....wednesday
Today my desk has a few more goodies on it that the mailman delivered on Monday.
A gorgeous pattern from Oliver + S that a very lovely lady ordered from the US for me (thanks Lesley). I've seen this little tea dress made up on the sew mama sew blog and it is gorgeous. I just need to find the perfect material for it:) I'm thinking a nice wool blend for winter but am having a hard time finding the perfect one.
The new mixtape. Hoping to sit down with this in the arvo today. no chance yesterday, Tully had a bug in her tummy and is was a bit of a messy ole day. Apparently the "beetle" is out of her tummy now but she is very sleepy. Poor little moppit.
And lastly a lovley pile of gorgeous wool felt from winterwood toys I did notice in my brief flick through mixtape an article on wool felt and this store was recommended. I have to second that recommendation:) The ladies are lovely to deal with and the felt is most awesome. It is such a wonderful texture and as the hand dye it in store you can get some wonderful colours and effects. They are really accomodating too and will dye to your request. I have a plan of asking them to dye up a range of pastel tones on one piece for me to use as pixie wings.
So that's what's on my desk today, along with some paints and a couple of little tees and some more softies waiting to be stuffed. To check out some more desks go visit kootoyoo
