Fairy frolics, RAKs and cuteness…

Thank you so much for your kind words of understanding and support in my last post. You girls are the best! :-)


Are you enjoying the weekend? We had beautiful weather in Melbourne yesterday so my family and I sat in the back garden to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. I finished stitching my daughter’s fairy house and she thought Christmas had come early! :-)


Rosies fairy house


This is the third fairy house I’ve made – the other two were for my son and another friend’s daughter. I used this gorgeous pattern by Julie McCulloch of Magic Threads. To this house I added a love heart to the top tendrils, and decorated the outside walls with some ribbon embroidery and buttons.

Talking of fairies… here she is! My own real life little bundle of fairy mischief!


Rosie with Debs bag


Looking a wee bit dishevelled – as some fairies do! *wink* :-)


Do you see the beautiful hand-made bag she is cherishing? It was a delightful surprise gift this week from the gorgeous Deb in New Zealand! Deb and I have been blogging buddies since I started out on my blogging journey and we have become good friends over the past year. In an email I disclosed to Deb that my DD has had some anxiety issues of late, which has caused her not to want to go out anywhere because she is afraid of noise. So Deb made this sweet bag for Rosie, to encourage her to want go out shopping with mummy. How gorgeous and thoughtful is that?


Thank you Deb – you are such a sweetheart – and I cherish our friendship! xx


Deb is a Material Chick! By that I mean she is one of the founders of an on-line pattern store named Material Chicks! They are having a sale at the moment and I was quick to snap up this gorgeous BOM by Libby Richardson.


Girls day out patterns


I have already started collecting the fabrics and over the Christmas holidays I plan to put the materials with each block – so that I create a job bag from which to work from each month. I love being organised! And one of my favourite pastimes is putting piles of fabric together! Is there a word for this kind of behaviour?!!!


On my fabric hunting-gathering expeditions I also picked up these little beauties:


Scissors - fairy


They’re called ‘Embroidery Angels’! Aren’t they sweet? I shall keep one pair and the other is destined for a gift.


I’ll leave you for today with one more photo of cuteness… my pup, outside in the garden, covered in freshly cut grass and begging her mum for a play!

How could I resist?!!!


Until next time – Hugs! Vikki :-) x

Sad to hear you are leaving the nutters, but i know you will never be far from their hearts....or ours!

The fairy house is a work of art. I am curious to know where you got the scissors. I would love to get my best friend a pair as she collects them.

Geez I wish I had a little fairy to make one of those houses for! What a sweet little fairy she is too! Anxiety is not nice, hopefully she'll overcome it, if not get some help before it becomes a major issue.
Hugs

Your fairy house is so beautiful. Your little girl is so lucky especially with the new bag. You know I love bags. And the scissors are sooooooo cute, I not only have a thing with bags and pincushions but also scissors. Can I buy them on-line. Good luck with your Girls day out, I will start quilting today on mine.

Hi Vikki,
Love the pink version :)
Your fairy looks likes the cute butter wouldn't melt in my mouth kind :D

Lots of hugs, Sharon

KaHolly said...

WOW!! At first glance, I thought it was ceramic and perhaps you had picked it up at some amazing store. But NO, it's fabric and it's just delightful. You are too clever for words. What a precious little fairy girl you have there. Enjoy every single second because they grow up SO fast! Mine just celebrated her 33rd birthday and it totally blows my mind. ~ kaholly

Liz Schaffner said...

Hey Vikki! Your faerie house looks FABULOUS! I actually think I have a pattern for that in my cupboard somewhere, but when I got it home from the craft fair (impulse buy!!) it all looked too hard, so was shelved! :0) Your own little faerie looks gorgeous ... windblown from flitting through the forrest perhaps! :0) And I sure couldn't resist your little poochie's pleas ... is it a Westie?? My dream dog is a Westie ... one day! Have fun - Bear Hugs! KRIS
