This is actually a skirt I bought from Vinnies last week. Beige is one of my favourite colours and the dots are quite's 100% cotton and heaps of fabric in it....gotta love that for $8. Can't wait to chop it up and use for....who knows what?

and this one is some sale fabric my girlfriend bought me a couple of weeks ago. I had the pink one in my stash ages ago, I used it all in a quilt for my friends bubba.....I really love it so I'm glad to have it back in my stash...

After many a long night hand stitching on the lounge, I have finally finished my babushka quilt. Now I can pack it away and wait until Rosa gets a bed. I'm certainly in no rush!

The back

Can you spot the blonde haired, blue eyed babushka?

I'm so ready for my next project, it's amazing how sick of something you can get after months of looking at it.

Hexy Singlets

My cousin in Queensland had twin bubba girls six weeks ago, here are a couple of hexy singlets I made.

Ink and Spindle have such a beautiful range of hand printed fabrics. I couldn't resist these at the craft fair. Think I will make some cushions for my lounge or maybe put them into a doona cover for my bed........or maybe both..will just have to buy more.

Some more yummy finds at the show from Amitie


This dress.......certainly one of my fave finds at the Stitches and Craft show. This cute little number is from Madi and Me. I love the Heather Bailey fabric and love that it only cost $30. I wouldn't even make it for that. It's great too because it is fully reversible in a gorgeous pale aqua and white print......two dresses for the price of one!

Some more of my stash from the Sydney craft fair. I love this little Japanese pink bus fabric. Something about the natural linen that pulls me in every time.

What a lovely surprise I had today when the postie came by! I received this gorgeous little pressie from my very thoughtful friend Lea. It was my birthday last month and she gave me the 'Meet Me at Mikes' book, funnily enough my sister did as well. Lea was more than happy to keep the book (who wouldn't be?). She currently has the Amy Butler 'Little Stitches' on order for me.....hence the inscription. Lucky me gets a few gorgeous fat quarters of Amy Butler fabric to add to my stash while I patiently await my book. Just look at that sweet wrapping and cute little Florette.

Project Babushka

Here I am at the Prints Charming studio back in March attempting one of their creative courses, Screen Printing. I remember doing it at school and loving it. This was certainly no exception. My friend Vicky and I had lots of fun playing with colours and creating a design for our fabric. With what started out as a peacock plume (too tricky for beginners) ended up a babushka print.

Or should I say pink, butternut pumpkin shaped faceless blobs........Don't worry they will soon have embroidered faces and become a single bed quilt for Rosa.

Drying off just in time to take home......

And here is Vicky's creation which I just love.


I love this little linen babushka print I found at the last Sydney craft fair. Who knows what will become of it........Maybe a pillow with the spotty backing and red piping.

Hexagon Mad

At my Wednesday night class at Prints Charming I learnt how to sew these little hexagons. Great way to use up quilting scraps. I Can't quite see myself making a whole quilt with them, but sewed one on this little top for Rosa.
