Vintage Nest Delivery!

Just in time for the holidays i delivered another order to the Vintage Nest in Bellingen. My order this time was made mostly from gorgeous old teatowels and tableclothes.

This is one of my favourites. I just adore pastels and flowers.
I have decided though that when stretching fabric over a canvas it is better to use a canvas frame with thick sides (about 4cm). It is also worth buying a quality frame when using large pieces of fabric as they will keep their tension better.
These two cushions are made from a gorgeous Japanese print fabric.
Well i had better go and savour my last 10 minutes of normality before i pick up the kids for the next two weeks of holidays. Lots of fun things planned...and no lunches to pack..yippee.

Frolic in Fabric at the Fair

It was a most wonderful day at the Village Fair today! After so much rain this week it sure was great to wake up to a gorgeous sunny day and to be apart of a very successful Fair at Bishop Druitt College. My stall was one of the 70 stalls assembled, not to mention amusement rides, pony rides, the wetpac helicopter, woodchopping and much more.

These are my very colourful peg boards, for pegging all those miscellaneous notes and pictures. Most handy indeed.

Lovely linen table runners all rolled up!

Cute as a Doll!

At the end of the day one of these gorgeous bags was raffled and the winner was "Brodi" of Brayside Preschool. Big Congratulations to you Brodi.
Also a big welcome to anyone who dropped by my stall today and is reading my blog for the first time.. Please take the time to make a comment as i would love to hear from you. Well it certainly is time for has been a big day.
