Sewing

Today I have fallen in love with Schumacher Fabrics all over again and found a new blog. Whilst innocently browsing the web I came across this most wonderful blog, Little Green Notebook run by the very talented interior designer Jenny Komenda.  You have to check out her daugther’s bedroom makeover. She recovered the headboards in super cool Schumacher’s Chiang Mai Dragon, painted the side table, turned an old mirror into a funky hot pink framed chalkboard, created art for the walls, repainted an old lamp, revamped white bed linen, revamped a mirror, constructed pelmet boxes for the three windows and the list goes on …… Amazing and all doable!!!

and if that ain’t enough Jenny has just completed her office makeover.

After I stopped drooling over all the colours I searched the web for some Schumacher fabric and just purchased a metre and half of Hot House Flowers! Yippee.

I am one happy camper today.

Dottie Angel recently ran a summer apron giveaway on her fabulous and very humorous blog and low and behold my name was picked by her cute little dog, Olive.

Dottie Angel (aka Tif) makes one off pieces using recycled finds like vintage pillowcases, napkins and leftover fabric. She also reclaims vintage slips and adds her special touches before putting them in her Etsy shop for sale.

here is the fabulous apron!

and here is Olive. Too cute for words.

Shaukat & Company was established on Old Brompton Road in London in 1976 by entrepreneur Shaukat Habib Nasser Rattansey, who started this line from his fascination with fabrics and the Middle East! The company is a legend in the Middle East, known in the Gulf States as a place to meet and greet while buying fabrics to your hearts content. Shaukat & Company has grown from a niche retail outlet catering soley for Middle Eastern clients to a well established company attracting buyers from all over the world.

Here are a couple out of the many many many fabrics they have available from their online shop.
