So much to share. I’ve been particularly crafty of late and doing my best to complete projects and not just start them and get distracted by making cups of tea, demands from the kiddies or distractions of little bits of fluff on my sleeve… oh sorry, now where was I?
I wish I was more organised and managed to ever take some before shots. If I had, this would be much more impressive.
These were little home made chairs that were sitting around my grandparents-in-law’s house. They were originally stained (a very pine-y yellow gloss) and had mustard yellow vinyl covers with these strange high backs. The new upholstery is a Moda Home fabric we sell in the shop, very durable heavy weave. I just love how they turned out (the kids are pretty happy too!)
As weak as it is- I do believe this constitutes an Ikea hack. Some Dulux spray paint in Volcano Orange and I’m very impressed with my glossy little kitchen accessory/ extra chair.
This one I did quite a white back, I just don’t think I ever got around to blogging it. I found the lamp base at Mill Markets in Geelong -oh how I love that place! The shade was a plain white one I bought for $2 (super bargain basement price) from Kmart which I recovered in some yummy Amy Butler Wildflowers fabric from the Daisy Chain range. It now graces the sideboard in my dining room.
It appears that I’m not the only one. The little guy has been painting to his heart’s content and is super keen to practise his newly acquired skill of turning one’s painting into a stamp (where you turn your painting face down and rub the back so that you get a mirror image). Only thing is, he doesn’t always have the paper lined up underneath.
Needless to say we did end up with some lovely reverse paintings directly transfered onto the table top.Tags: About Me, Amy Butler, Fabric, store, wee one

Mezzanine is Patty’s new collection for Michael Miller Fabrics and was inspired by the fabulous stonework, ironwork, terraces, gardens and tapestries she photographed during her travels throughout Northern Europe. You can see the French, Belgian and Dutch influence of cathedrals, theaters, museums and castles in Patty’s designs.

New fabric about to hit the shop. Lovely yarn dyed mini plaids in pink and chocolate are part of the Charleston V range by Judie Rothermel. Mix them with the rest of the Charleston range or use them on their own to make up some of our children’s wear patterns.
Wee one turned three last week. Now not wee so much- maybe more midi. I think I’ll keep working on a new nickname.
We had a lovely party for him on the weekend to celebrate. Bouncy castle, helium balloons, gourmet Greek food as far as the eye could see (courtesy of my mother in law) and a Makka Pakka cake (as requested by the wee one himself) and lovingly- if not skillfully- made by me.
As always, it’s not a proper party without my Nigella cupcakes…
We were so busy with the party we didn’t take many pictures. Luckily a special friend deployed her husband to be our event photographer.Tags: birthday, checks, Cupcakes, Fabric, plaids, Shop, store, wee one

Ok- my life is so mad that this is the first chance I’ve had to relay how the Sister’s Market went (almost 10 days after the fact). It’s been hard to keep on top of things with the wee one being settled into what I am from now on going to refer to as “Baby kinder” to help alleviate some mummy guilt. Settling him in and trying to find bits of my house under mounds of washing (both clean and dirty) have become consuming tasks, never mind a little thing called THE SHOP!
So here is the story of Sisters’ Market in pictures (it was fab, come and visit me in June!)
Let’s start with the day before- Elliott helped me get organised. Good boy!
A small selection.
Delicious Fat Quarters, waiting to be snapped up. And they’re fat free!
Handmade birdie brooches by Pia Handmade.
Handsome hanks of hand dyed knitting yarn made by USA girl, Knitty Dirty Girl.
Hand finished, oiled and painted (sustainable) Tassie oak knitting needles.
Hand knitted baby booties (made by my mum!)
Birdie key chains. Hand made by me!
An enticing selection of our goodies on display.
A small selection of our ace craft books. And some teeny weeny cheeky matryoshkas peeking out too.
A fun day was had by all.Tags: Elliott, sisters' market, store
What an exciting weekend! We went to the quilting trade show on Saturday and have ordered all sorts of exciting new fabrics, patterns, books and notions for the fabric shop. This is me looking all professional (hahaha).
Lovely, lovely fabric.
And look who I met! I was so star struck, but Amy Butler is the lovliest, most generous person. We had a chat and she graciously signed some copies of Midwest Modern and Little Stitches for Little Ones for our shop.
Here’s some gorgeous new Japanese fabrics arriving early next year.
That’s just the beginning, more next time.Tags: Amy Butler, books, store, trade show

Look at the latest lovelies we have ordered! The new Amy Butler Daisy Chain quilting fabrics, available in store shortly.
Amongst others, we have also ordered the delicious new range of quilting weight fabrics by Heather Bailey, Pop Garden.
That’s just on the shop front. On the home front, I have realised that the wee one’s bunny lovey is about to disintegrate. If this happens, it actually WILL be the end of the earth, so I have been knitting him a little bunny lovey sized bespoke jumper. Have just finished the last sleeve and am off to piece it together.
I think when bunny wakes up in the morning, there may be some time for a photo opp replete with jumper.Tags: Add new tag, Amy Butler, bunny, Daisy Chain, Heather Bailey, Pop Garden, store, wee one
