Nothing to do with tutus, but I love this photo


I took this today from my kitchen, he was right outside the door, screeching at me (why is there no seed in the bird feeder?) or at my three cats who were fascinated. Luckily the camera was handy. I really like cockatoos.

Odette tutu 2011


I posted this off this afternoon to Annika in Queensland. The brief was for an Odette tutu with lots of sparkle. I put a layer of white organza covered with silver glitter swirls underneath the top net layer. Should really twinkle under lights.

I have just received some lovely photos of Larran in her Dewdrop tutu, they are in the gallery...thank you Sandi and Larran for sending them.

Learn to make a tutu, courses in January 2012.

I will be running a couple of two day tutu making courses over January, anyone interested please email me. Cost will be $300 for two days and in that time you should be able to make a tutu, learn a bit about decorating and make a basic tiara. I will provide lunch both days and my husband says he'll make endless cups of tea.
