Happy first day of SPRING!!! If you're on this side of the planet, I hope the sun is starting to show her beautiful face to you!

I'm itching to shed the coat, boots and dark colours and wear some bright, floaty, floral print dresses! I was feeling in the mood for some inspiration the other day, so I popped over to the greenhouse to smell the fresh floral air and absorb the bright colours and textures. Now that these sunny days are at our doorstep, I pulled together a few colour palettes to get my head in gear for some projects ahead.

I hopped over to Melbourne recently for the most amazing weekend with some lovely ladies from blog land.  This was a whirlwind trip, as Simon (who was surprisingly happy to join in on all the sew-ist activities) and I ran around town over a weekend catching up with sewing peeps and trying to soak in as much as possible that this incredible city has to offer: Food, street art, coffee, galleries, did I say food?

By some very unexpected, romantic turn of recent events, I've found myself on the other side of the world, in South Australia. I've been here for two weeks and it's been some of the happiest days I can remember. I was not prepared for the beauty that I'm seeing everyday, and I wanted to share some of it with you.

I had a little ray of sunshine dropped in last week from the big apple to brighten my day! Jennifer from New York's Workroom Social was visiting Toronto and it was such a treat to hang out with another lovely sewing diva and chew on big ideas and lofty dreams.

::: Tj's Hand Painted Lola :::

Isn't this dress crazy beautiful?!! My jaw dropped when I saw Tj's version of Lola. At first I thought, where the heck did she get that amazing knit and how did she manage to line up the print so perfectly across the panels?!?! But at a closer look, I realized that she DREW. IT . HERSELF!!! This girl has talent!
