Crochet Poodles

I love almost anything in the shape of a poodle and considering my increasing lack of space, a useful poodle is even better. This poodle is extremely useful in covering bottles so instead of opening your cupboards and looking like an alcoholic, you can instead look like a crazy poodle freak, which is much better. Unfortunately, I only have a talcum powder bottle poodle cover which is not nearly as exciting as this suave Pierre covering your finest bottle of peach schnapps. The crochet cover girl seems to agree. She's found a new best friend! One day I hope to be able to crochet well enough so I can have my very own fancy booze hound.

My new favourite magazine!

On my recent trip to Melbourne, I came across Uppercase magazine and I love it! It is for "the creative and curious" and it's all the way from Canada. Starting from the exquisite cover by Matte Stephens through to the very last superbly designed page, there is something interesting! It covers illustration, design, craft, textiles, books, films and so much more!  Unfortunately, there is only one stockist in the whole of the country so who knows when I will get my next copy. Until then, I can clutch at my precious edition of issue 5 and sigh over its brilliance.

If you received the latest Perth Upmarket newsletter, you will already know that I will be a vendor at the next market in June! I am very excited and working on some new products for my Upmarket debut.
It is on Sunday the 27th June in Winthrop Hall at UWA. Put it in your diary!
