IT’S LATE, everyone is in bed and I just scared the bejangles out of my husband getting up to “dear diary” myself in an attempt the quieten my chaotic mind.
Driving into Merredin today and my heart not only swelled, it near on exploded with pride!
I was greeted with a sea of red, the red of 6500 handmade red poppies!!! 2000 hours of work, made from all sorts of materials by 400 odd people and planted by over 100 people!!
I am feeling generous and have just booked to run a workshop to give away my skincare making secrets, so thought I would follow suit and let you into my chaotic creative mind.
I am about to take you on a journey through my thought process when I spot a certian something at a thrift store that I just HAVE to take home
With all of the things I am trying to achieve lately, I not only have no where to sew, but haven’t found the time, so I have gone back to my original plan (made years ago and used often by my Mum, also, when we were young) and chosen a day, thrown all the housework “out the window” (ok, so I do the dishes and make the bed, but that is ALL) and declared TUESDAY as SEWDAY!!
So, The last few months have been Horrendous!! Moving house and all the hell that goes with that, on top of a “burnt out” mind and body and a whole lot more awfulness that happened (I won’t even get into that)……..
I opened up Facebook today and was greeted by feathers and lace and spectacular hats………
It’s MELBOURNE CUP DAY!!!!
I feel VERY underdressed as I sit here in my PJ’s still, looking at all the glamour that is happening out there now. One lot of photos grabbed my attention though, a group of hardworking Mum’s, who have been let loose on Melbourne, to remember what amazing women they are, other than being a Mum.
What little girl doesn’t like a tulle skirt and a lace top??
