Kitty knitting needles case!
My made-from-scratch interchangeable knitting needle case sbaped like a kitty, inspired by the tutorial on Handmadiya. My HiyaHiya needles (gift from @yeokaiwen) are totally ready for spring! (Let's pretend SG has seasons.) 😙 Flip to the video to see how it opens up! - I hand-painted and speckled silk noile fabric with pastel Dharma Procion MX dyes because I wanted something that is totally mine. - The pouch in the middle uses fabric swatches from a curtain sample book (which are just nice large enough!). - The cable holders were ice-dyed along with my first attempt at making pastel-hued fabric (it was bold and beautiful but NOT pastel). - The little wool patch is a sorry excuse of a darning needle holder; I might fix that if I get too bothered by it. - And thank goodness for my pad-making supplies: plastic snap buttons save the day! No need to sew on metal snaps or worse, normal buttons and buttonholes. 😅
This is a replacement for my HiyaHiya pouch, because red brocade makes me feel uncomfortable. (The design was randomised, doesn't reflect @yeokaiwen's design sense 😆.) I am keen to sell or trade the HiyaHiya pouch, please DM me if you are interested.

Yup. I was definately school ready this morning #schoolholidaysover
Orlando.and I are enjoying the novelty of having no big kids around today. Tomorrow, I'm sure we will be back to moaning.and annoying one another.
I am a massive fan of early childhood education being an option available for everyone, but with Orlando we have waited because of his haemophilia.
But he needs to go.
He wants to socialise away from me.
I am waiting by the phone for the call to say there is a space available.
He has his school bag packed and waiting the door...

Why should ordinary days be utilitarian? I like to use my special @robertgordonaustralia swatch mug, a hand painted plate I found in Tuscany, and a blue glass set I bought from an #antiques Fair. They are beautiful to eat/ drink from, and look oh so pretty paired with my linen mini table runner & napkin 😍Go on, make the ordinary #extraordinary .

You guysssss! I have to show you my shirt I put on today! It's an old cotton crappy shirt that has a hole and was looking pretty grey so I dipped her in the indigo vat a few weeks ago and now I love it!
This is the original #embroidery on the bag, which I made years ago after reading Michelle de Kretser's The Lost Dog. The silk fabric on the handle shattered, hence the necessary repair. Unfortunately I didn't have any more of the #handdyed#silk thread but had to make do with #dmccotton
Have been planning on doing lots of natural dyeing! I've been using Natural Color by Sasha Duerr and Wild Color by Jenny Dean as references and writing it all down in my moleskin. These books are great resources for different types of mordants and what works best with different fibers! #natural#dyeing#naturaldyeing#color#fiberart#handdyed#nature
I was tagged by the joyful soap maker @happyhuliabotanicals to share what I'm working on right meow. Being that today is the day I was born, I'm working on something just for fun. It's been a minute since I played with #fiberreactivedye I forgot how fun it is. #birthdayjams |||||| now I tag all y'all and ask whatchu working on? 🤔✨💡⚒@sevenfeatherstribe @applejaxie @benu_apparel @of.mars @elanaj_o @scarletbg1 @deadwoodoriginals @erinmichaelart @tyedyejim ❤️💛💚💙💜
