What a rainy day in the gorgeous Blue Mountains its been.  Time to catch up on a bit of craft and of course feed the washing into the dryer.  Annaliese and I have made a tissue pom pom which was super easy and looks just lovely in her room.  I'm sure you will agree.  I also made a skirt in black wool fabric and attached a flower from the same fabric.  I can't wait to wear it.  I feels so warm on.

We took the kids to the Sydney Brickshow yesterday at the Powerhouse Museum and the boys really seemed to enjoy it.  Annaliese wasn't as keen.  She enjoyed the Fashion and Lace exhibition which was really quite good too.  They also have movie memorabilia there from Narnia the movie and the kids thought that was pretty great too. 

I am going to start a few tutorials soon which should be a bit of fun.  I was thinking of starting with a simple book bag.  It could also be used for a shopping bag or anything else you can think of.  I will get moving and have it up later in the week.  I am considering selling kits for everything I make via craftumi so you can follow the instructions on my blog and make your own.  Is this something you might like to see?  They will not be expensive but merely the cost to cover the items and my time to make up the kits. Please feel free to let me know if this might be something you think you might be interested in.  Remember I always like to hear what you would like to see from me. 

Thats it for now.  I hope you all have a great week.
