New love... Felt.

There's so much at Quilt Market here that catches your eye. So many ideas and inspiration for future projects. I've always been interested in felt, but I've walked out of market today loving felt and there's one reason why.

These lovely little felt creatures are from a new book, that we'll be bringing back with us (limited copies). I can't wait to try making these... No idea who for, but they're too sweet to say no to. Don't you agree?

Houston... so far

Greetings from Houston Texas. We landed safely a few days ago after a long, quite tricky journey with no sleep, 2 hours in customs lines and a missed connecting flight but we're here in one piece and in good health so can't complain.

My first view of America this trip might not have been the prettiest but it was exciting.

Houston has grabbed my attention in an interesting way. We're staying in the business district and when they say business, they don't mess around. There are few cafes, and pretty much no retail stores. Very different to my home town, Melbourne.

We're surrounded by high rise buildings, and car parks. There's not much to really take in yet but I've had little time to explore with my camera.

Today was Schoolhouse. You run around like a mad person all day listening to different speakers. There were some familiar faces, and lots of new ones with exciting products and ideas.
Tomorrow is day 1 of market where we get a chance to shop for new stock, I'll try and post again soon to keep you in the know!

Hand piecing is my love. I adore getting home, putting my feet up and having a little stitch.

But today there's only one thing on my mind....

Sorry stitching, but it's time to share the love.

Fabric love

Just a few of my new favourites.

Cute, cute, cute... and then some!

I am in love... yes, IN LOVE! With a new range we have here at work. It's so adorable, and with one of my best friends about to have a baby (and I mean literally about to have a baby... she's in labor) my mind is a whirl of all the cute projects I could make for the little bundle of joy from this range.

There's fabric for girls.

And, fabric for boys.

I am really into the rocket prints. I wonder if you could do a pieced rocket?

These fabrics have come in at $20, but now with our new $18.50 per meter price, they are as affordable as they are cute. Win/win right?!
