Progress people. Progress.

Well, painting is finished. Finito, done, final! YIP. Small dance happening in my brain. I had grand plans to unpack the crafty studio this weekend. Well, the nasty gastro got me AGAIN! Dunno what’s going on there. Jen, tried the REVOLTING rice water….no go 😦 man I wanted it to work. Back at the doc’s another jab in the bum and minimal unpacking done. My poor MIL was up for a night and had the special joy of listening to me driving the porcelain bus. She was very gracious, it was nice laying in bed listening to Son and her mum interact. They have a nice rhythm with each other.


Jen, who is blogless, but I reckon should get herself one, sent me an email this week letting me know that she purchased Amy Butler fabric from Textile Traders. I know, all you West Aussies get back on your seats. I couldn’t get to the store that she went to, we think it’s Booragoon (Jen’s a country gal and wasn’t quite sure about the absolute location), but went to the Balcatta store. No Amy, however, there was Moda and Freespirit and Michael Miller and others. Not a huge range but promising. Great prices too. AUD$9.99 to $14.99. WOOT. So get on over to your Textile Traders and let’s buy so they keep stocking. More about Jen in another post. Jen needs a post to herself.


So, here’s some more peeks at the house. It’s coming together nicely. Next up is getting some framing done and hung.

More pics over at "My Home" Flickr set with some notes.


Finished some more knits. This bib-o-love from Mason Dixon Knitting was a nice quickie, finished off with a wooden gingerbread man button. Not sure which bebe this is for yet, they’re popping up all over the place at the moment. Get on over and congratulate Di on her newest achievement! Also contrats to Felis and Jason on the birth of little Charlie.

I also knitted a London Beanie for The Son. More details soon when she’s available for a picture. Also, not to harp on but Ravelry so ROCKS. It’s friggin awesome.

    Looks super, Nicole. The green is so zingy!
    Perthies represent! I will skedaddle down south of the river over the weekend.

    Textile Traders also sell factory seconds of the above for $3.50 a metre. I have Denyse Schmidt where the colours don’t line up (honestly didn’t notice till I went searching for what was wrong with it); Moda with a tiny white splotch in an otherwise solid pink background; and some Andover mills that I still haven’t worked out what’s wrong with it.

    Thanks for the tip on Textile Traders – I made it there when I was in Perth and found some great fabric – found some freespirit in Bunbury last year, but haven’t checked recently.
