This is what I spent my weekend on...have to say that I'm pretty chuffed with the end result. We have a wedding to go to next month and I decided to make some new accessories to jazz up my outfit.
I found the pattern and tutorial for the Integral Bow Clutch by CONSTRUCTIVism on Etsy. Its definitely not a beginners project but worth the effort and patience. I got it finished in a weekend.
I found a great tutorial for DIY shoe clips on Pinterest so I fashioned some out of the leftover lining fabric and some vintage costume jewellery. I love the contrast of fuchsia and black with that little bit of sparkle.
Next sewing project on my list...making the boys some summery tees and shorts for our trip up to Queensland in the September school hols.

The first of the cherry blossoms...and with their blushing blooms comes the promise of spring.
Bluebells pushing their way up out of the soil.
Hellebores bobbing their blousy heads.
Colour creeping back into the garden.
Veggie beds filled with broad beans, cauliflower, baby cos, rainbow chard, carrots, garlic, onions, kale and corriander.
This week has been beautiful for outdoor play...positively warm at 15 degrees. So lovely to stand in the sunshine and take in the garden as it starts to wake from its winter slumber.
Bring on Spring!

Truffle goes really well with butter, eggs, cream and cheese.
I whipped up some truffle scrambled eggs on sourdough toast for dinner one night. A simple but sumptuous dish using freshly laid eggs from our hens that were stored with the truffle for 24hrs.
Add a dash of cream and a little salt and pepper to the eggs, scramble them over low heat, serve on thick slices of Italian sourdough toast and finely grate truffle over the top.
Thanks Margie & Ali...it was Trufflicious!
The Truffle Festival Canberra Region is definitely worth indulging in.
It's a taste of Mid-Winter magic!
