NaBloPoMo – Day 16 – The Holiday Trunk Show with the Beehive Coop

Today was finally the day of  our trunk show together – the room looked lovely with it’s candle light and flickering lights for the holiday theme. It was a busy couple of hours and I enjoyed meeting some new people and chatting. I had a few great sales and caught up with some friends I had not seen in ages too! Which means more catching up before the year is out something to look forward to the relaxing, the eating and of course the drinking 🙂

After the show I went to the theatre with my son to see Peter Pan by the Peninsula Youth Theatre – it was such a wonderful show as I had only see the Disney film before.

We all had a lot of fun at the Diwali Trunk Show with the delicious food and goodies – here are some pics of the table of the new range of what I will have on offer at the FabMo Textile Art boutique happening Oct 27 2013 in Menlo Park.

A very successful Spring Trunk Show!

I just wanted to say a big thank you to the local peeps who made it to the Trunk Show last Saturday. Our theme was Mothers Day and Fathers Day and of course Spring! The weather was in full force last week and it was beautiful, sunny and very HOT. Still for those who came there was a bounty of goodies to check out and some very tasty treats. Here are some of my dyed scarves that I just love and also pictures of the show – enjoy!

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.
