hand made birthday

It's a friend's birthday this weekend and I knew she'd appreciate something hand made. It's been a while since I put my plaiting skills to good use so I thought I might made her a cosmetic pouch for her handbag.

And nothing says "Happy Birthday" and "I love you" more than a card that looks like this.

A new friend, Colette

Now I've tried my hand at dress making before and it never really stuck. I don't gravitate towards sewing on a machine, I don't find it as peaceful as hand but we've recently come across some new patterns (well new for us) that are pulling me straight back to my machine.

Meet Colette.

These patterns are beautiful. So retro, with fits that look so flattering.

With seperates to dresses, there's so to be something here for everybody.

And I have to say, I am a very big fan of the packaging too!

I cannot wait to sew myself into a new wardrobe.
Come in store and take a look.

Today I went to the Downtown Houston Aquarium.

This is Zulu, an African Grey Parrot.
He was hiding up high, but after clicking my tongue a few times he started to make his way down the wires to investigate.

After closer inspection, he gave me a wolf whistle so I think we're friends.

There were white tigers are the aquarium.
This is Nero - he was lovely. Sat very still for me to take photos. This is one of many... he stole my heart a little!

Aquariums are not photo friendly environments. Thick glass and dark spaces.

I walked back to the hotel in the sunshine.

There seems to be a lot of public art around the streets of Downtown.
Reminds me of Melbourne, in ways.

The only photo of me on this trip... hiding behind my camera.

More to come another day, I need to hit the sack for Festival tomorrow.
