Sewing

Yay for Friday!

I tried a new colour combo today – Blue on Hot Pink. Way back when I wanted to try this colour combo but never did. I think it works.

Then I spent some time with my sewing machine but now its knock off time. Have a good weekend people they only come around once a week.

Well I finally finished the first armchair cushion cover. It’s quite clear I am no upholsterer and my sewing machine has decided to confirm this by blowing up. I have a new-found respect for upholstery and will pay someone else to do mine in the future. Life is just too short people.

The fabric is Sofia from Ikea.

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.
