some greenery in the office

On the week end I saw a nice display of jars with succulents in them, I have lots of succulents in the garden and so I now have a little greenery at work.

w :: stylish dress book

Another top from one of my japanese pattern books - 2 down and quite pleased.  I used chambray for this one, it probably wouldn't have hurt to use something a little lighter but it's not too bad.  I purchased a chambray top a while ago on sale, it was priced at $90 and when I took it to the register it was only $25 -bargain.  Anyway I really like it, so that's why I thought I'd give this a go in chambray as well.

 this frill may look a little bulky in the pic below, but really it's ok, really!  this top has been through a wash and fraying up nicely.

 a little straight & zigzag stitching on the sleeve edge.

I would like to make a denim skirt (I'm thinking black denim) at some stage, I need to find the right pattern though...

beds for toys

Back in May I made these bears for the kiddies, and it was time for them to have a bed each, so here they are resting peacefully.
