Last Monday Anke and her daughter took up the challenge to make their own quankie in one 6 hour workshop using one of my specially designed kits in their chosen colourways of blue/ purple and blues/turquoise - we stopped for lunch downstairs in the Gourmet Parlour just to keep our energy up !
An order for gift monster kits packaged and ready to go ! It has taken a while but finally settled on packaging for the gift monster kits after all the humming and hawing it is both functional and yet simple- there is nothing like the impetus of a deadline to focus the mind.

Freshly Pieced blog been wanting to give it a go but much to my consternation when I pieced all the rays together it became a buckled up mess ... so there was nothing for it but to slash and burn !!! After cutting randomly from the edges still could not get it to sit straight that's when I discovered oops ! forgotten to sew one of the rays in ... a ray short that was the source of my mess. But happy to say that all is now well with the world and it turned out so nice decided to design a little quilt around the block above is the work in progress and happy accidents do happen afterall !

Had a little special Mum and Daughter creative studio time today at Curlyrip's Made It Studio. Nicole, Cushla and Grace all had a very relaxing, creative and productive time making a Japanese Knot bag and two cupcake coin purses ... which look good enough to eat ! We like to call these FUNKtional workshops fun, funky and functional. Thank you for choosing Curlyrip and it was a pleasure to create with all of you.
