Today I love….Rachael Treasure

30 Jul

This woman is one hell of an Aussie!!!

She is worth her weight in gold for the wonderful work she does for working sheep dogs, women, their families and rural farming communities in this country.

What a woman she is!!!

As Rachael herself says:

“My life is made rich with the presence of animals in my life. I adore my sheep (Crossbreds and Merinos) and Hereford Cattle that are raised on all natural grass.

Our dogs are part of our family. We have both Kelpies and Collies, a Springer Spaniel for truffle harvest and a cheeky Jack Russell that’s great on cleaning my kitchen floor.

We use our horses for both social outings (riding down to the bar at the cricket club) or working stock on the farm. We also breed a few foals using good Aussie stockhorse or Waler genetics.”

My Mum got me reading her books and now I just can’t put them down – well, now I can because I have read them all and I need Rachael to write more for me and her many other fans!!

Today I love….Athletic Dress

30 Jul

I love this dress….

Although I don’t love the look on the models’ face….

I also don’t love the price…..

So I might just have to find a nice long jumper/top from the local little strip shop clothing store and alter it to be similar….

All About Eve Athletic Dress

The other option is to get a basic long sleeve t-shirt pattern and alter it yourself! Or perhaps you could find a scoop neck t-shirt in your wardrobe and make a pattern from that, then sew it up in a fleecy fabric….

This pattern from Burda is not too bad:

Find it here

It is a very easy piece to make…..

Now THAT sounds like a plan….stay tuned!!! This will be my upcoming Spring Fashion project!

Bonds make an oversized sloppy Joe that is kinda getting there….and you might be lucky enough to find it on special somewhere….

One of my winter lusts was this jumper below and I recently found it on sale so it is now on it’s way to my sticky little hands!!! Knowing Melbourne and it’s weather I should have a chance to wear it while it is still cold and then stockpile it for next year.
