February review

Back to school last month and trying to make the most of the long daylight hours of Summer to be creatively busy. If you've not been here before I work at a private school as part-time librarian and part-time office administrator. I think I have the best job in the world and I get great holidays 💜 It's been a really busy first month back at school, so less finished than what I would have liked, but I always appreciate writing these posts to remind myself of all that I actually get done. One of the lessons that I seem to have to re-learn every so often is to just start...
I was in need of some more card bases - I will finish them with words and whatever else takes my fancy when occasions arise. 
Progress on my stitched "Down the garden path" roll. February's prompts were Vegetable garden and Garden shed. My garden shed began with dyed fabrics from a class I took last month and that cut out of a chicken. I like how my shed looks beside my vegie patch and I don't care about scale or perfect stitching. It makes me smile.
If you want to join in, all the prompts are on YouTube Here.
I've been continuing to work in my JIYA Journal created from Megan Quinlan's class. These are my spreads completed last month
Liz Constable's latest book arrived, autographed inside and wrapped in gorgeous paper made by her with a little extra envelope. 
It is a fabulous addition to my learning from Fodder School lessons last month. Run and order yours now. So good to support an artist living in New Zealand - she posts internationally. And I finally completed my Imperfect Portfolio project inspired by Liz's January lessons - see lots of photos HERE
We've all felt a bit short-changed with our February weather - not our usual summer in New Zealand. Everything crossed that March is a delight and Autumn is a late starter. We've had a fabulous day for the 1st of the month. Daylight savings doesn't finish until 2nd April so I'm living on summer time until then. I'll keep sharing my main projects on this blog but please check out my Instagram or FB artist page for more regular updates of my projects in progress.


  1. A month of such beautiful creativity.

  2. Your JIYA journal is looking wonderful with your girls and writing. And the tiny garden... absolutely perfect.

    1. You are so kind. I am wanting to play more with those lovely girl stencils and am loving the stitching challenge.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I will always respond to you so check back here in a couple of days.
