Fabric Delight



 Glorious new fabric from Canton Village Quilt Works! I got this a few days back and have been gazing at it lovingly since.
Just look at it! All green and blue and lovely!


Only a fellow fabric maniac can understand the measure of a fabric affliction -which gives me hope because I know there are so many of you out there....


So, I write this post to you who will understand my happiness at having all this lovely cotton arrive at my doorstep.


I just love these prints and the quality of the fabric is great. It's nice and sturdy quilting cotton and I can imagine how easy it will be to work with. 


I will definately be following up with what I do with it.

Making Pom Poms



These are so great to make with kids!!
I haven't yet met a kid who doesn't get really excited with these.


There are some great tutorials for making pom-poms on youtube.

Warm Chocolate



These are my newest organza flowers, in a deep, rich chocolate brown.



I think I'll turn one into a brooch and keep it myself. I find that brown is such an easy-to-wear winter colour.

Monogrammed Sea Rocks



What started out as a quick and simple present idea for a friend has initiated a monogrammed sea rock craze. 


These were made with a 1930s art deco vibe in mind so there are the bold lines, sunburst-inspired motifs and a font that's reminiscent of lettering of the era.


I've made more that have already been given away which I didn't have time to photograph. 
I'm happy to say they were all well-received.


Now I'm just waiting for a trip down to the beach to get more rocks....


Because I just can't stop.
 There are so many designs in my head that I want to experiment with.

Fairytale Flower Review


The lovely Duni of Duni's Studio was kind enough to do a review on a couple of my Fairytale Flower items the other day.


You can read all about what she had to say HERE.
I just love the pictures she took.
She's the pretty face just below, wearing my latest earings.


And here are a couple of pictures I took on my own of said flower earrings.


I love the rich orange of this fabric. It's a colour that I always associate with fall and I love to see it in fall accessories.


These are only just over 2cm or about half an inch (0.5inches) and I think they are very cute indeed but, at the same time, I can't wait to make some much, much bigger ones.
Real statement earrings.

Flower Sea Rocks





More sea rocks with floral motifs.
I love making these.
We have a bowl full of them in the hall and use a couple of large ones as paperweights. They are very handy when sewing actually. I use them to hold down pattern pieces that flutter in the breeze -when there's a breeze.....
