Why are pirates pirates?

Cos they arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr


Yeah, I know it's a lame joke but it's in the spirit of the most recent gift I gave which was a pirate doll James and I collaborated on for his nephew for his naming ceremony. The pattern's inspired by Claire Garland's Toys to Sew.


It's 2 weeks today before we leave for Europe. I have 3 sewing projects on the go. Just finished cutting the fabric for all of them. You see, one of the problems with planning a big trip is that you also have to plan the presents for birthdays while you're away so there's been a crazy mad dash to create as much as possible in a very short period of time. And no, I'm not thinking about the one month count down to christmas when I get back. It will all be worth it though.

It's the first day of Spring today in Australia so I'm leaving you with this image of a hibiscus flower in the bottom of a freshly poured glass of champagne from a recent celebration.
