Skills passed down.

I love the fact that I can learn so much from my mum. Either in the kitchen or the sewing room she aways has something new to teach me. I remember as a child that she did macrame and wow did she do it!!!! String all over the house to be honest. Hanging from door handles and chairs.

So I thought it the perfect chance with her last visit to teach me this retro craft from Retro Gran (as we call her)


One thing I love about my mum is we can have a good laugh. The amount of times we have been making something. For example my boys first birthday cake. It was an elmo one and man did we have trouble. It took us until 1am in the morning (while the men slept of course) to "try" and get a red colour to the cake. It turned out amazing but boy did it have some food colouring in ; ) I've been so lucky over the years to enjoying making things with my mum. And even having her in the South Island hasn't stopped us from crafting together. A family that crafts together stays together ; )

Tassel blanket

So I brought this beautiful vintage patchwork blanket last year while op shopping. It really needed some work and I just didn't have the time to give it the love....until last week when I spotted the latest homestyle magazine. I thought it was the perfect project for this tassel blanket.



Over the weekend we had a power cut (halfway through a large order I was trying to finish on my sewing machine) which lasted well over an hour so I thought why not finish my blanket. Away I went
making tassels. And I have to say it was lots of fun. I think it turned out great and looks amazing in Mr 9's room with his new cushion from Gerty Brown Trading.
