just checking in

Work in Progress Friday took place at my home this week. The girls were working on needle felted projects so I was happy to have them. Any messy craft we do in Victoria’s studio! The HUGE pile of sweets (or lollies if you’re reading this in NZ) isn’t a regular thing but what’s the harm in treating yourselves every now and again?!


Remember the ink and watercolour on text with a dash of embroidery? It’s now been framed and is hanging on the wall. Clearly not a masterpiece but I kind of like the effect. You might have to click on the image to enlarge it.


Mr Tread Softly and I are planning the next phase of decoration/renovation on our cottage. It kicks off next weekend and I’m so excited. We haven’t done any decorating for a few weeks now and were starting to get withdrawal symptoms so Mr ST spent a couple of hours painting an old timber framed mirror. Even before the paint was dry I was itching to get it up in the lounge.


The two little red cardinals perched on top were a Christmas gift from Kelly.The cupboard Mr TS rescued from a skip in the UK and I painted it and the painting above (my FAVOURITE piece of art that I own) is called Ruby Loves and is by Portland artist Sherry Dooley.

Until next time…

  1. I like the idea of you all meeting up to sew and eat sweets. Your cottage looks lovely and is coming on a treat!

    What a productive team you are, the sweetie fuel must be an important part of the meet and its nice to see you are keeping well hydrated too.
    Its great to get a running report of work in progress and even better to see the photographic evidence.
    You and Mr TS have achieved sooo much in sooo short a time.

  3. Oh just perfect. Creating, friends and sweets. Can I come next time please? Mary
