HK & Oz in one!

As I had such a lovely time I just want to share some images that I took last xmas and New year down under. I went with my partner for a month to see my Dad. We had the best time, lovely hot weather, everyone was soo friendly. Plus we missed most of the heavy snow that we had in Jan this year! which was a bonus! Took me a while to adjust back to the freeze! But i have to say that it was very strange having a BBQ on the beach xmas eve, christmas day not being cold and boxing day going sailing. There were xmas decorations and lights along the beach. Strange but in a good way!
We stayed in Brisbane, then travelled down to Sydney for New Year, stayed on a ranch in Canberra and then back up to Brisbane where we flew to Hong Kong for a few nights. The whole experience was amazing and would recommend both HK and OZ to anyone! Plus went to a few markets and met lots of lovely crafters!!
Sailing on Surfers Paradise

Sydney habour early New Years Eve before the fire works kicked off!
Brisbane, sat with a kangaroo in Steve Irwins zoo! Partner was on his toes just incase one went for him Hong Kong at night is amazing. All the lights from the buildings and the hussle and bustle in the old back street markets!
Old HK trams. They are so skinny!

Cable car up the mountains in HK!
Overall I took about 3ooo photos with a camera that my partner bought me for the trip. But I wont bore you with anymore! Will definately be going back soon!

Latest work /craft room!

As I havent blogged for a while I thought I would share some pics of my latest craft room where I work. I love this as I can shut the door at the end of the day and not worry about packing away, so i can concentrate more on making lovely items! Organised...(but not always as tidy as these pics show!)..

I have decorated it with various pics and trinkets to give me new ideas and inspiration..

Everything has its place including these glass jars which I filled up with spare buttons, ribbon, pins, binding tape to make it easier to find plus it looks decorative too! ...

shelving unit for storing all my goodies and craft supplies.. Plus a comfy office chair!

What more could a crafty girl ask for? lol

New Fabrics all the way from France!

On a recent summer holiday in France, I found lots of inspiration for MissLucyLu in the lovely countryside and shabby chic french towns! We all had a lovely time staying in a large villa for the family. The weather was hot and sunny everyday, tasty french food and wine, so I couldnt ask for anything better than this. Plus new fabric from the local french market! Here are some pics that I thought I would share with you. If you are interested in any of my Fabric I have brought back, then please let me know. I can make cushions, buntings, bags ect.
Large raspberries on white fabric
Fairies and castles on lemon fabric (so cute)
