Perfect for picnicing with your pals, high tea with your housemates or pedalling on your treadlie. 
We keep hearing from our customers how everytime they wear their Bit of Skirt, they get loads of compliments.

They also look super cute with Saltwater sandals!!
Come and see for yourself...

Making time to make stuff

As much as we love to craft, when it comes down to it - we procrastinate. We clean, look at blogs, magazines and books for 'inspiration', watch bad tv and then get frustrated as to where all the time has gone and why haven't I finished that quilt from 3 years ago or the granny square blanket from last winter?
Well, the times they are a changin........

Still not completed granny square blanket but well on it's way, may actually be in use this winter! Multi tasking at it's finest.....

The Very Hungry Caterpillar quilt completed! One child very happy, just need to make two more now for other green eyed monsters!
New uniforms for us in the planning stages.....
Will post photo's when done...

I think we deserve Nigella's chocolate brownie after those efforts!

What's on the table?

Our yummy lunch yesterday.....

Quinoa salad with roasted pumpkin, sweet potato and zucchini, pine nuts, caramelised onions, mint and sweet white nectarines...we had the same today but added feta and pear.
Then for sweets a cappuccino and orange cream biscuit - YUM!
If you haven't tried quinoa before, maybe you could add it to your shopping list, it is really good for you and just as easy as cooking up rice and it is very tasty!

We aren't serving up lunches at Fine & Sunny, just wanted to share, however you can most definitely have the coffee and bickie!
