It's been super busy around here, as I'm doing the Finders Keepers market again in a couple of weeks. If you're in Melbourne, come on down and say hello. But I've managed to catch a few little snaps here and there...

1. amazing green tomatoes from my sister's garden (lunch amid fabric scraps)
2 & 4. quilts and cushions in bright colours were the results of last week's productivity
3. part of our morning routine is counting the number of hot air balloons we see. I never tire of those glorious things floating by
5. enjoying our garage sale find (complete with '70s yellow coke bottle glass... ace)
6. some hot air balloons last week copped this on their morning ride over the city. Double rainbow all the way across. if you know what I'm saying

*Hi Em...*

It's our wedding anniversary next week and I've been thinking about what it means to commit yourself to someone. For like, forever. That's big stuff. Katherine Bowman made my wedding ring and I love that it's such a special piece, like these of hers above - a little battered, with indents and fingerprints, not perfect but real and beautiful and a little bit wonky.  Like us.
*update* sorry for those who visited before and couldn't see the pictures... they're there now!

Che and Fidel giveaway

So if you look closely, you'll see one of my creations up there in the gorgeous and decadent Autumn giveaway by Che & Fidel. Not that you'd know it's Autumn here in Melbourne - 9 days of above 30 degrees and we're all pretty over it. Pretty over talking about it too, so I'll stop there and just say thanks Jodi for featuring Miette Handmade!
And you can click on the above link or here to go in the running for all these and more (if you haven't already...)

A new favourite...

Hello there...
Here's another little quilt that went on its merry way to happy recipients last week. Modelled most graciously by my little fella, Leo.

The backing fabric was one of my Paris purchases... making it just that little bit extra special. I had some trouble parting with it!
