we ♥ liam fundraising giveaway

Lynn Russell of Satsuma Press is holding the most super of dooper giveaways in order to raise funds to remodel the household bathroom for her precious son Liam, who suffers from a neuromuscular disorder. The list of goodies and contributors is spectacular, and I hope that enough money is raised to see Liam get his accommodating bathroom and beyond. Join in!

I have borrowed the photo above, of Liam, from Lynn. Thank you.

sewing behind thighs, in a toilet

Hooray for sewing skills. (But derr!)
Started my day with the bus-stop seat biting holes into the back of my tights, on both my legs. With legs swung onto the toilet lid I had to stitch behind me without seeing. It may not be pretty, but it saved me from a progression of tearing and embarrassment for the rest of the day.

Have a wonderful weekend.

cute + poo (not mutually exclusive)

A brilliant find in Chinatown a few weeks ago. The label said it, "faeces doll".
Poo can be cute, plus here and here.

The sweetest (and non-poo related) of friends pointed me towards Andrea Kang. Super cute stuff. Watch her animation.

things are getting goaty

Working on my favourite goat in screenprint form.

Saw many beautiful photographs yet to be taken today. An older lady, aqua jacket, purple skirt, riding her hot crimson bike, hair net and all. Two women, long dark hair, filling their grocery trolleys with flowers from bushes beside the footpath. Ashamedly I had not one camera to capture them.

to the day

Amazing day. Burmese feast with my second family, heartening and inspiring conversation with old friends and stewing over ideas for a collaboration with a precise woodworker, (some of the bounty he gave above). Haven't decided what to stain the bangle with yet. Hope you all experience a day like this soon.

This, have you seen it yet? Astoundingly brilliant. Via.

happy easter and all that

This bunny is confused regarding the delivery of eggs. (Where he comes from, the dropping off of chocolate eggs mean something different).

Song of the day, for its Creamy goodness.
