Loving sash headband combinations

I'm very happy with how this next design in my Floral Range turned out. And made even more beautiful by the lovely talent photography of Kris McCann.

Wear it as a sash or wear it as a headband in boho or traditional style! For this first trio, I've used my dusty rose pink, natural and fern green 100% cotton luxuriously soft threads. I love this colour combination.

Shop now at my Etsy or Made It stores.

Pretty new floral designs

I'm very happy with how my new floral design has turned out. The new thread colours look fabulous. It has been so much fun dressing up each flower. There are buttons, silver and my favourite material next to threads, Swarovski! So pretty. This simple photo was taken with my Canon Ixus under overcast daylight. Then a little adjustment of the levels in Photoshop for a slight clean up of colour clarity. LOVE! I'm having a Market Night on my facebook page on Wed 29th June to celebrate and share my happiness. There will be special packs available at exclusive prices. I hope you will be able to join me. There are a few items available to order now and through to Thursday 30th June 12 noon, Australian WST.

Happy new thread colours

How happy are these colours. Some are restocked favourites while most are new to my range. I can't wait to start working with them.

Ugly Fabric Craft-a-thon

I'm participating in Handmade Cooperative's Ugly Fabric Craft-a-thon. This challenge involves taking a supplied piece of 40 x 80 cm ugly fabric - a vintage floral of reds, blue and white - and turning it into something appealing that's suitable for use with kids. Here's a pic of the fabric - it's actually uglier in person!! Here's a sneak peak of the 3 creations I made to answer this challenge: Read Handmade Cooperative's post tomorrow to see all the creations made by all the participants. I can't wait to see how the other's have interpreted this fabric!

Happy Travels

I post my creations to all corners of our wonderful world. Snail mail is quite a rarity these days. Most of the letters we receive in our letterboxes seem to be bills or advertising. So, I like to have some fun and prettify my envelopes as a happy surprise for my customers! From little thank you comments or a happy doodle. Sometimes I even include a surprise gift inside! Look at these vibrant postage stamps I just bought! They're Australia Post 'Come to the Show' stamps (released March 2010). I'll be using these on my next parcels, wherever in the world they may be heading to. Don't they just make you smile?!
