crafty procrastinations...

I may need to send out an SOS call over the next 24 hours, as the mother in law has come for a visit. Let's just say... she's as mad as a cut snake! Totally harmless & lovely & means very well... but crazy.
Yesterday I was meant to be tidying the house in preparation for her visit, but I think I was in complete denial of her coming. Surely it was all just a dream. Instead of tidying, I made this cute little pouch. I had no purpose in mind for it, I clearly just needed some craft therapy.
Perhaps I'll gift it to a friend who is just crazy about owls.
If you like japanese fabric at all & live in Melbourne. You must get yourself to the Ziguzagu sale in richmond. It's on until the 10th of April & they have some gorgeous vintage kimono fabric.
Wish me luck for the next so many hours. If I'm not back here tomorrow... someone please come & rescue me.

i love ziguzagu. the week before I left Melbourne I discovered them..gee that is now 7 years ago. And every trip I make to Melbourne i make the effort to get there.

My zabutons are in need of recovering so I really want to come down and play with all those wonderful fabrics.
