Sunday Frustrations

A little multiple choice game for you this evening dear readers.... Tell me, which is worse:

A. Spending $170 at Lincraft only to realise you've bought insufficient fabric for not 1, not 2 but THREE dresses

B. Buying crapola pins that put awful holes in your new (but insufficiently long length of) fabric

C. Having your cat tear through not only the instructions but also through your lovely, neatly re-traced patterns

D. All of the above

ps - am TOTALLY addicted to Instagram at the moment (which explains the lack of blog posts).....if you're on it too then find me - i'm honidesign xx

Sunday Crafternoon

Sunday afternoon – spent making Easter crafts with the uber inspirational Kelly Doust at the most wonderful craft shop in the WORLD (Calico and Ivy in Balmain) surrounded by really lovely, talented girls. I indulged in the afternoon tea; delightful orange cake and macaroons and earl grey tea served in the most divine Vintage tea set. To top it off, the rain fell dreamily on the tin roof. I was in absolute heaven! Kelly sharing her wisdom with the group Tea and craft - GORGEOUS Heather Bailey felt in the background Macarons and Kaffe Fasset fabric The Easter Finger puppets i made Me with Kelly A HUGE Thankyou to Amy and Sarah and Deb at Calico and Ivy, and to Kelly. I had the most wonderful afternoon and I left feeling so inspired and energised to create beautiful things!
