FABRIC UPDATE: is that I have none 🙈. Our manufacturer is probably growing weary of hearing from me 😬🙉 But their country is going through their own (much more awful) issues so I’m trying to give them space and patience (whilst being secretly uber anxious) and to also give my kiddoes space and time (whilst being secretly uber anxious)...🤣 I’m still hoping very optimistically for the end of July so feel free to cross your everything with me, plus an extra dose of gratitude that we’re not…

What’s the most ambitious sewing project you’ve undertaken? I’d love to hear! Mine was 15 years ago when my husband and I decided to sew a quilt for a friend although we had never sewn before 🤣 It almost drove us batty but we kept at it night after night, taking turns at the machine and cursing when the corners didn’t match up 😳🤣 If you’ve always wanted to learn how to sew, how fabulous would it be to do it in an environment like this one at @sewingadventures ! 🤩🥳 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Repost of…

I started this biz so I could stay home with my kids. During these crazy times it’s been the biggest blessing to be able to be here for them. I can’t thank you all enough for that (and my husband J for working like a maniac so the 5 of us can...not!). 😊 I know many of you have kids and I know the temptation to have a social media presence is a tough competitor to being present with your families and I hope you’re finding peace with either or both and being kind to yourselves in these… Be Bold, Be Kind To Yourself, Finding Peace, I Hope You, Canning, Be You Bravely, Conservation

RESEARCH: It’s funny, living on the Gold Coast people assume we spend our lives at the beach but we actually visit Surfers every couple of years 😆 There’s so much more to this city than the centre, as with every city (swipe! 👉🏻). What part of your city do you most enjoy that’s unexpected? For us it’s skirting along the edges: rainforest walks in the Hinterland, playing on quiet Northern beaches like Jacob’s Well and Cabbage Tree point, hunting for rocky streams on Google Maps and… Gold Coast, Textile Design, Map, Location Map, Maps

Since we lucky ducks in Aus we are returning to life as we knew it, it’s hard to imagine that Covid rates continue to rise in other countries...that kids are wearing visors to kindy and stuck in apartments and homeschooling and far, far worse. 🦠 😔 Which is why I’m doing my best not to stress about another fabric delay due to shipping restrictions. 😌 It’s still set to arrive in July, but more likely to be late July and I sincerely apologize but hope you can understand!

These girls. They didn’t hit it off immediately like my boys did when E was born. 👬🏼 But Covid social distancing has been so very good for them. 👩🏻‍🤝‍👩🏼As I type they’re sitting in an Amazon box drawing together quietly. (swipe 😆) My boys have become very serious about developing board games, card games, stories and characters and sit at their desk drawing all the time, too. My husband keeps saying, “all they want to do is draw!” 😁 Mission accomplished 😁👍🏻 .  #wahm… These Girls, My Boys, Amazon Box, Mission Accomplished, Textile Design, Card Games, Husband, Characters, Desk

3.5 weeks of school holidays started tonight...they’re pumped. 🤸🏼⛹🏻‍♂️🏃🏼‍♀️🚶🏼‍♂️ I’m...excited to have no curriculum? And teachers: I can only imagine you’re both 😆 Hello, Pjs for days! 🥳 (It was free dress day today, which the girls took as “dress up day” and even when I explained they insisted on wearing wings. Who’s gonna argue with that? And Jemima is much happier that she appears 😬🤣) .  #wahm #handmadeconnect #dresslikeamum #ladystartup #mumfashion  #businesschicks… Dress Up Day, School Holidays, Textile Design, Pjs, Curriculum, Wings, Lady, Fabric, How To Wear
