About me…
I live in Brunswick with my husband Chris and work full time in education advocacy at Swinburne University. Outside my day job, I run my small crafty business Polka Dot Rabbit making accessories and home goods out of retro and recycled materials. More recently Chris and I initiated Green Renters , a website of tips and info for people who wish to do their bit for the environment despite the challenges of living in a rental property. For fun I enjoy travelling, learning German, reading crime fiction, drinking vodka and hosting tea parties in the back garden and thinking about all the crafty things I would do if I had lots of time!

About My Square...
My square is inspired by a painted by Wilton Williams "The Bystander" (1925). I am a huge fan of 1920's art and art deco designs. I also adore cloche hats! The embroidery combines applique, backstitch, stem stitch and chain stitch. I really enjoyed designing it as sometimes it's an absolute luxury to make something 'just for me' rather than due to retail demand! I have some future 1920's inspired creations in the works.

Oh, this is absolutely gorgeous! I love the lines and fabric orientation in the checked dress. The overall design is delightful, and the embroidery is lovely. Mmmm. :) (Can we pick favorites? Me like, me like!)
