Apple fresh

Busy day... New fresh apple and plenty of teal daisies and orchard prints just in time for the Sisters Market tomorrow with enough left over to take up to Sydney for Stitches and Craft. Also dropped off some goodies to the lovely Claude - can't wait to see the window display!

Making it

We're back from a lush weekend in Sydney. Each time I go there I discover a new area that I'd never seen before and fall in love with the city more than the last time! This time I explored the streets of Surry Hills and Woollahra and found so many gorgeous shops full of stuff. I loved fossicking in Orson and BlakeWhen David met Nicole and Bird. I just adore being able to walk and walk and discover new places. Have you rated your neighbourhood's walk score? (My house rates 77)

Also in Surry Hills is Cloth. Julie and her designs are such an inspiration for me. Especially 18 months ago when I was thinking of taking my sketches a step further and venturing into textiles. I’m thrilled to now find pippijoe in the new edition of "Handmade in Melbourne".  It’s been a wonderful and satisfying journey!

First day back at kinder today and making the most of my time making up a pile of sling bag patterns to take along to the stitches and craft show! It's on in Sydney next month and I'm so excited to be going and spending time with all the crafty chicks!

makeover part one

I'm doing this in a bit of a rush, I should be packing for weekend away! But today I picked up a newly upholstered chair and I just had to show it off. I found these two lovely 1940's (I'm guessing) chairs recently and took them along to the team at Martel for a spruce up.

I chose the nest fabric as it's a bit of a favourite of mine and am trying to decide which fabric to choose for the other chair. I'd like it matching, but not the same... any suggestions?

I'll take better pics of this one when the sun comes out! In the meantime I'm going to collect my warmest clothes and head off for a girlie weekend down the peninsula. Bye!

Stacking and packing

I've been folding and sticking and packing and stacking. I have piles of fat quarters to take along to the sisters' market in Brunswick. I'll be there on the first of August, can't wait!

Off to Portside

I've just finished packaging up a parcel to go to Kim at Udessi so she can add a little pippijoe flavour to the Boutique Markets at Portside in Brisbane. I've included a selection of fabrics, mix packs and a couple of 'oddments' packs perfect for little crafty adventures! Make sure you go and visit her on Sunday the 12th for her first market day, I've heard there'll be plenty of coffee and chocolate to keep you going!
