I'm up to my ears in fabric, kits and other paraphernalia trying to get organised for the Stitches and Craft show being held at Caulfield Racecourse next week!

Tara's cushions in the shopfront set off by the amazing hand knitted paper curtain
I was lucky enough to be invited to Tara Badcock's Art Textiles launch at the gorgeous shop Tiger & Peacock in North Fitzroy. Tara's exquisite embroidered cushions were the star of the show in amongst some stunning homewares and artworks.
Incredible detail and delicate needlework
Such a beautiful collection of treasures and definitely worth a look, then head next door to the Moroccan Soup Bar to satisfy your belly.
Me and Tara cradling some cushions!

Gorgeous illustrations and a sweet little Fatina brooch
Shop facade decorated with all sorts of kitsch
I've just arrived back from a little jaunt through Tokyo and Hong Kong. I have loads to catch up on and kidlets to cuddle but just wanted to share this little shop I found in the back streets of Soho, Hong Kong. Chocolate Rain is a shop full of gorgeous handmade creations all made from your favourite old clothing that is too good to throw away, while upstairs there is a little sewing room with local crafty chicks making sweet purses, brooches and other treasures.
A patchwork of inspiration and pretty pictures all bound up!
