Outdoor Fabric for Summer - This weeks Favourite

Two of my favourite out door stripe fabrics, soil and stain resitant, ideal with my boys around.  These are such gorgeous stripes, really nice and wide, each stripe being 9cms wide.

This is just part of the Santuary Range from Warwick Fabrics, I have just picked a few that are popular, the complete collection is available. 
I have chosen the sunrise colourwary for cushions and chair covers on my patio, I shall post some pics once completed, Im so looking forward to the finished product.

Have a Happy Sunny Week.

A very Happy New Year to all my Friends and Followers

Santa, waved goodnight for the last time  at the weekend, until Dec 1st 2010.  We always find it sad taking hime down, its as if he is really alive.  Hes back in his box, recharging ready for another Christmas.

So on with this fabulous new year, wow 2010, should we all be flying around in small spaceships instead of cars, thats what i imagined when i was very young back in the ummmm early 70s, when 2010 was ever mentioned -  films like Logans Run and The Time machine, but here we are all doing basically the same as the last century. Except maybe the ipones and ipod touches, what great gizzmos they are, cant put them down and such time wasters too!!

Anyway on with the fabric issues, i have some fantastic new fabrics in store, Degas and Moulin, drapery, home furnishing, light upholstry weight, absolutely divine, Im having my dressmakers dummy - sally ann, recovered in the pink colourway.  All from Warwick Australia and loving the designs and colourways.  These designs are fromt he Bohemia Collection, very stylish.

Degas is a poppy design on a soft linen coloured background, the largest pooppy measuring 13cm

The Co-ordinating stripe is gorgeous too Moulin, the stripes are nice and wide at 33.5cm

 Heres wishing you all a great January, and relaxing time with the Kiddies still off school, Im off to do some sewing today, as the family have gone off surfing for a couple of hours, and I need to sew something, maybe  make some new cushion covers who knows.

A Christmas Tablecloth Decision

I love both of these tablecloths, and making the decision for a customer as to which one to have is difficult, it has been left in my hands.
Myself, I love the Amy Butler Paradise Garden, as this would fit into my home quite well, the red/white mexican oilcloth is more traditional and would look good at Christmas, with the stuffed Turkey in the centre and wouldnt cost as much either.

Paradise Garden

But having said that, I laid this oilcloth widthways across my table, almost like a wide runner and that worked well, with my table top being black glass. And my table is only 90cms wide so 1.25 metres would be enough, this could be done with the Mexican Oilcloth too.

Im full of money saving ideas today, must be the heat!!.
