About Me

My photo
Married to Tony mother to 2 children Lucas 23, Gemma 26 & her boyfriend Sean. Carer for 2 crazy Jack Russells. I'm dyslexic so excuse any mistakes. The Stitching Room is where I spend my time playing with Clarice (my camera) and Bernie (my sewing machine). Come on in and see what I'm up to.

Another month gone

I have been busy making Poufs.
The pattern is now available in my Etsy Shop see tab above.
This one is still to be stuffed, I like the fussy cut top circle.
We have had a fair bit of this lately.
So I have managed a bit of sewing
This camera bag has been in my head for a while. I wanted a bag I could put everything in. I am pleased with how it turned out.
Zip pockets at both ends
Now I know that looks like 2 lunch packs in there but ......... why reinvent the wheel. I am going to add some dense foam and cover them. They are the perfect size for my camera and lenses.
Some snaps from my garden we have had so much rain this winter.

Over the weekend when the sun was shining Tony and I went over to the Port to see the Dutch Tall Ships.
Even the Dolphins were interested

Once she had left the Port we headed down the river to see her.
Random shots while we waited.

Going past the cement works

Nearly out the river now at Outer Harbour with the Pilot boat along side.
Heading to open water.
If you managed to get to the end of this post and you would like a copy of the Pouf Pattern then leave a comment and I will pick a winner next Wednesday.
Oh and how could I forget I am off to Ballarat for a bit of bloggy fun, for details visit Jodie at Ric-Rac

Nice bag, I caved and bought a leather one to take to Italy. I'd love a copy of the pouf, been wanting to make one for ages..
Can't wait to meet up next week Leanne, looking forward to lots of chatter and photos...

I would love a copy of the pouf pattern! It seems you picked a perfect day to see the Tall Ship- your photos are great! And I love the camera bag- such jazzy bright fabric too!

Sue said...

Love love your poufs. How did you make that camera bag. It looks so complicated with all it's pockets & a zip. Good job and great choice of fabric.

I can't believe another month has passed and inroads into the new month already made! Sometimes it is scary how fast the time flies.

I would like a pattern for that cute poof!

Went to see the tall ships once when they were in Vancouver. The crowds were too much for me!

Shay said...

Oooh I would love a pouf pattern ! They look so gorgeous and fun to make !

Love your camera bag - perfect for toting a load of stuff around.

Your photos always thrill me - you have such amazing talent.

always love your pics........great bag you sure are a wizz.....no rain here but glad you have got some........

Sue SA said...

Lucky you, I am sure a class with Jodie will be lots of fun! Are you going to drive?
Love the photos of the tall ships and of your Arum lillies, great flowers - so elegant. The camera bag looks great, very professional and sturdy for protecting all your gear. I am a big fan of your poufs and was recently complaining to DH that I had to go buy a pattern, as I had missed the opportunity to go to your class. Fingers crossed now if I don't wina pattern you are running another class?

Lorraine said...

Love the camera bag! Perhaps we could have a stitching weekend soon and you could help me make one......i would never attempt something like that on my own! Love your pics as always!

Shirley said...

Love the pouffe and would love the pattern. Great photo's as ever Leanne. You must have had some rain because I know from my garden here in Blighty that those Peace Lily's need water. Your garden is looking good. Have fun on your travels.

Lovely poufs!
Thanks for the garden and seaside photos!


Tracey said...

I love the pouf you have made and would really like a copy of the pattern. Funnily enough we looked for one for Father's Day, but couldn't find any, so I can see a Christmas present coming up. And your photos are beautiful.

Annie said...

Love the tall ships. I've had kids drawing them in our early Australian studies at school. Looking forward to seeing you in Ballarat. How long are you staying? Hope you will have time to come and visit my garden and sewing room.

Your poufs are really eye-catching. What are the dimensions?

You camera bag has me green with envy. I finally purchased a good Canon with lens and have been wondering what to do about carrying them.
