A holiday boutique today!

Anyone in the South Bay, CA come on by to my sons school holiday boutique from 12pm to 6pm today at 750-B San Pierre Way Mountain View. Pick up a card at the boutique for a special deal at my etsy store! I am out of town though my items are there with a fellow creator of wooden pieces that are just gorgeous.

A Fabulous show!

An update on the show which was last Saturday the 27th… It was super successful and I sold about one third of my stock. The rest I have put up on etsy for now till I can find time for another show. I would have to say that the FabMo Textile Art Boutique has an amazing array of talented folk showing their wares at a location that was just beautiful and airy. I would have to say I was happy with my spot outside under the eaves and the weather was perfect. A big thank you to all the people who came by to say hello and show their support, I truly appreciate you coming by. Here is a picture of my booth on the day – what fun it was and I met some great people there too!

Sewing away…

Since the kiddos went back to school I have been hard at work creating my range of goodies for the FabMo Textile Art Boutique on the 27th October! Anyhow for those of you that are not familiar with all the goodness FabMo do for the community here is the lowdown… FabMo (a non-profit) collect interior design fabric samples and other bits and pieces to distribute to the public once a month to purchase by the bagful! You are only limited to your imagination as to what you can make.

Talk about getting organised… Here are some pics of my Domestic Goddess range that includes aprons, cushions, pincushions, totes and bags – whew! There has been a lot of cutting and sewing going on in my little craft room.

A work in progress – this may have been a curtain in a previous life!

Here are a few of the bags and totes that I have made from cotton/linen samples and even a sample from Missoni, super special indeed.

These bags are amazing – I could only make a couple as the raw silk was the size of a curtain length and these bags are quite large, perfect for the market.
