Busy, busy...nesting.

I picked up my re-upholstered chair today and couldn't wait to get it inside but I had to patiently wait for the LF to get home and lift it out of the car. I'd almost hatched a plan with Sheridan (my pregnant neighbour) to help with the lifting (she's due next week). Then we realised how much trouble we'd be in once our beloved husbands found out. I love it. Thank you to yhe lovely boys at Martel Upholstery, in Camberwell, for doing such a wonderful job. Take a look at the before and after shot here.

My discovery of the day has been a new Japanese shop in the Glen Eira Village called Muku (the webiste is still under construction but they are situated next to the Miriam Bereson store/office on Glen Eira Road). They import organic baby clothes and accessories from Japan that are to die for. The whole experience is a treat, make sure you pop in and say hello if you're passing.

Patchwork on Central Park have just received a new shipment of Japanses fabrics in store (not yet listed on the website but will be by the end of the week). It's quite lucky I didn't have enough time to stop in on my way back from the upholsterers this morning or my wallet would have been even lighter for sure.

Then, there was morning tea at Galleon, a trip to The Good Guys, a walk to the beach with the dog, grocery shopping and now I'm about to put my feet up, relax and work on my cross stitch.
What a day (only 3 weeks to go!).

Oh dear Belinda, it sounds like your wallet was somewhat lighter after a visit to patchwork On central's not hard to it?!!!!
Thank you Ladle for the lovely chair. I so love it and will cherish it for all of those wonderful summer afternoons we spent in Elwood..passing by Alchemy.
