I got the blah blah blahs

Not much to say here, but this morning I found a new use for my vintage Pyrex - in the sewing room.

Labels in Pyrex

While I was there I sewed a couple of things for the shop, but not too much. I didn't want to get overwhelmed with creativity or nothin'.

Elephants in Socks

I took a walk in the garden. Autumn, before the leaves colour and fall, is so pretty here in Canberra.



And I've almost finished a crocheted shawl. I haven't had time to do any sewing for myself for Big Girl's' Blou's'e Month but I did discover Shop your Shape thanks to Liesl at Hoppo Bumpo, and now I know what shape I am and what clothes are supposed to suit me, and you have no idea what a revelation that is.


  1. You must tell Canberra to be nice and Autumny on the last weekend of March for Liz is a comin'.
    I'll get in touch, but definately getting along to the Handmade market on Sunday 28th.cheers liz

  2. Oooh, can't wait to see the crochet shawl! I have a bit of a thing for them at the moment. I have just made one and I am waiting for some wool to arrives from the US so I can start on another one. :)

    PS. Love the pyrex and the matching bag.

  3. Nice repurpose of the pyrex, I love that pretty harlequin/dot pattern.

    Has the weather turned autumnal? It was warm here today, but you can tell summer is definitely on the way out.

  4. your pyrex is so lovely!
    those elephants are one of my faves!! =)

  5. An unusual but practical use for vintage Pyrex.

    Cute project bag.

  6. I've never seen a Pyrex like that before!

  7. That Shop your Shape website is great, thanks!

  8. OMG Shop Your Shape is fantastic!

    I think we used to have some Pyrex bowls like that, but without the litte detail on the side. The one I remember best was brown...And I have buddliea envy, is yours scented? I have an unscented one and it seems like such a waste!
