I had a little adventure into the city this morning to visit Heather at Pauanesia. I've made a few cards for the shop using their vintage maps, and am very excited about a second project: I'll be dipping into Heather's fabulous collection of vintage fabrics to make some bags especially for Pauanesia! Will keep you updated about that.
While I was out I got a copy of the latest Extra-Curricular. What a success. Well done Ellie for producing a magazine while on your OE; I can't imagine many people would be able to multi-task to that extent! And I was pleasantly surprised to see my work in there as well, in Anissa's article about upcycling, 'Waste not, want not'.
Now for something a bit more random: I have a pretty new teapot and cozy. Here it is, but I'll tell you more about it at the bottom of the post.
Speaking of pretty, and following from the title, some new pouches. I've got two markets this weekend, and hope to see you at either the B-Street night market on Saturday (5-9pm, St Kevin's Arcade on K'Rd) or Kraftbomb on Sunday morning (11-2, Grey Lynn Community Centre on Richmond Rd).
And here is the teapot again, with sewing pins for scale. Amazing! It was hand-knitted by a lady called Helen Palenski here in NZ, using tiny wire knitting needles. We took the boys to the North Shore Miniature Club's annual show over the weekend and were amazed at the detail and imagination of the displays...
