5 Weeks

5 Weeks old already, the weeks are passing too quickly and the newest member of the family is settling in very well.

He is a good feeder, sleeps well, loves a cuddle and is already as big as Master T was at 9 Weeks.

My Creative Space

Today I am back to some more quilting. I received an order of fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop in the post today - a layer cake of this new collection by Moda - Botany by Lauren & Jessi Jung. I love the earthy colours of this collection with the hints of pinks. So once I had the two littlest ones down for nap, I got cutting and put together this simple cot size quilt top.

This one I'll hopefully have finished for the next market in a couple of weeks time.

For some more lovely creative spaces go HERE : )

Quilting and Clippies

I am slowly getting myself into the groove of sewing, quilting and crafting again now that baby Nate is 5 weeks old - where are the weeks going. He is growing rapidly approaching the 5kg mark already, following us about, poking out his tongue an almost smiling : )
This week I have been making these cute little ribbon clippies that I thought might be a good extra for the markets as lots of customers also ask for clips rather than hair ties.
I also got some gorgeous fabrics in the post this week from Earthgirl Fabrics (I must say fabulous fast service!) - 6 fat quarters from Alexander Henry's Willow Collection. I love these gorgeous bright prints and have a couple of the fabrics ordered for Summer : ) I made this cot size quilt top yesterday from the fat quarters.
More sewing and crafting to be done over the coming weeks with 3 upcoming markets to get ready for : )

Ruby's Cargo

Ruby's Cargo is a little store in Wentworth, NSW (just across the river from Mildura) that stocks a wide range of handmade goods made by local handmakers, artists, foodies and more. It is run by volunteers and is open Monday to Friday, as well as Saturday morning. I have a small selection of fabric button goodies out there currently and will be dropping this selection of clothing out there this coming week. If you haven't been out to Wentworth in a while, pop on out and check out the gorgeous array of homemade jams and chutneys, soaps, wooden toys, jewellery, crafts, quilts, beautiful smocked dresses and so much more!

Getting Ready for Summer 2010

I'm starting to get my Summer 2010 Collection ready and this is a peak at some of the fabrics that I may be working with. Some new, some old, some japanese. I can't wait to show off some of my new designs : ) I have also been approached by a photographer to do a photo shoot for me and I am excited about that in the coming months.

For Summer I am looking at releasing something a little different to what I usually do. A short run of limited pieces across all sizes - as well as the usual OOAK fabric combinations in select designs.
Stay tuned for some sneak peaks in the coming weeks : )
