* Spring and Birthday sale! *

FabricPanelSale

First of all: as that image tells ya, my fabric panels are on spring sale: Doodle Flowers (pale), Watercolour Flowers and the Matryoshka Softie panel.

Use the code SPRING at checkout to apply the 30% discount.

The 2014 fabric calendar is not in the sale as such, but since we're now well into this year, I have reduced it by over 50%. (No code necessary.)

And since it's my birthday on Saturday, there is also 30% off embroidery patterns, embroidery sets and ebooks. The same code works for these: SPRING.

Happy stitching! :-)

This sale is on until (and including) Sunday, April 27th.

Tulip love

I *heart* tulips
Next after peonies, tulips are my favourite flowers. Just love them. So colourful and sculptural..

These orange tulips have an interesting pattern in a sort of greyish lilac colour.

I *heart* tulips
Red, bright red tulips. I love, love this vase I found in a charity shop. I don't seem to have a lot of luck in the charity shop finds department, so it's extra special when I do find something pretty. Although I guess the problem could be that I don't go in charity shops that often...

I *heart* tulips
See, bright, in-yer-face red! :-)

Cat in a box

Not our cat
"My box."

Not our cat
"I like this box. A lot."

This is *not* our cat. But if you follow me on Instagram you will know that she thinks she lives here. And that we're probably ok with that. ;-)

Patchworky makeup pouch

Blue and green makeup pouch
I've had 'make new pouch/bag for your makeup' on my mental to-do-soon list for, I dunno, probably two years and I finally made one! Huzzah!

Blue and green makeup pouch
The old was looking rather grubby, despite being washed several times, so it was time for a replacement. And this is it! I used two different fabrics on both sides. And then I added a different one to the bottom. Out of necessity *ahem* because I cut the other pieces too short. ;-)

I used one of the fancy lace zips to finish it off.

In case you're as obsessed with fabric as I am becoming, this is what I used.
In the top photo:
- The strawberries don't have a proper name that I can find, but it is part of the Old New Fabric 30s collection from Lecien.
- Patty Young Moorish Tile in Turquoise from the Andalucia collection.

In the bottom photo:
- Amy Butler Nanna Chic cloud in 'Dreamer' colour from the Lark collection.
- Denyse Schmidt Medallion in Green from the Flea Market Fancy Collection (reprint, not the original one).

The bottom on both sides is my own Wonky Dots Cool. (There are two other colourways of that: Wonky Dots Warm and Wonky Dots.)
