New word art at Fresco House & Flowers...

We've been having some beautiful sunny winter days here in Melbourne lately even though very cold in the mornings and evenings. I delivered some new fabric word arts to Fresco House & Flowers this week.  Their new cafe is now open on the weekends.

Tea for two on pretty oilcloth tabletops

love these metal hello signs

These are the new word arts available in Fresco

Inspired by the Beatles lyrics 'all you need is love' above and
'Dear Prudence' below..

Fresco is located in the village of Black Rock, Victoria 

You can't miss the big clock on Beach Road

There's a great playground across the road overlooking the beach.

Time to soak up the sun while it lasts.

keeping happy...

I enjoy making custom orders for people. Whether it's for a friend, or a friend wanting to give a gift to someone or a special request through my stockists.  It's nice to give people a good feeling, and make them happy with something made especially for them.

There is no end when it comes to making things.  It keeps me happy.

IKEA hackers...

Everyone knows IKEA right?  But have you heard of IKEA Hackers?  An IKEA hack is a modification/repurposing of an IKEA product.  There is even a website full of ideas right here!.

Check out this great EXPEDIT IKEA sewing station

This is going on my wish list.

Hope you have a great weekend!

a library bag...

Winter is a good time to cozy up inside and surround yourself with books.  I love visiting the library and borrowing a big stack.

I finished a custom made library bag yesterday. I made it in denim and appliqued the lettering.  It's large and sturdy so you can borrow as many books as you like!  I need to make another one for myself now.
