Following some feedback, I recut my banksia stencil and will use this one for placemats and sewing projects. The original I will keep for tea towels and table runners.

I've also recently learnt how to make a simple lamp shade using my screenprinted bower of beauty fabric.
I'm very proud of this - learnt at a 3hr Lamp Shade Workshop run by Julie at the Ministry of Handmade. I love doing this, but the components are very expensive.
And finally I had a great surprise last Saturday morning early when I looked up into the big grey ironbark at the bottom of the slope - my own resident koala!
