Look What I Found Over The Back Fence....

Last week I happened to look over my back fence & spot this little guy at the bottom of a tree.  I ran back into the house & grabbed my camera but by the time I'd made it out to the park he was up this Eucalyptus tree.  He stayed there for about five minutes for a chat (I did the chatting) before climbing further up.  We are lucky enough to back onto a nature reserve so it's lovely to sit out the back & hear the native birds of a morning.

This past week I have been sewing up a storm for the BrisStyle Market on this Saturday at Hamilton at St Augustines Church.  This is one of the bags I have just finished.  I'm using recycled hessian & old coffee bags & finishing them off with vintage & antique laces etc, this one is embellished with a removable tulle & silk flower with a bit of bling in the middle and it has calico ruffles.
Have a great week everyone, my sewing machine is calling!!


  1. Oh very pretty Joolz! Well done. ♥

  2. I love your bag. How great to have the park at your back door.
    Good luck for the weekend.

  3. The Koala bear is adorable! I'm glad I didn't toss out my small bit of burlap as it seems I am seeing it used everywhere on French style bags! Added with the ruffles your bag looks quite elegant. Now I am going to have to think up what to use my burlap/gunny sack fabric for. Thank you for coming over to follow my blog.

  4. Hi Teresa,
    Lovely to hear from you! Yes the burlap/hessian is really popular at the moment. Can't wait to see what you do with yours!

    I'm not in Brisbane and will not visit this market, but hope to see you next time! Bag is adorable!
