A whole lot of this and that

I can't really say I did a whole heap this past week. But I can't recall doing much sitting down either. We did have Shannon and Penny come visit the studio for morning tea, fabric buying and lunch... and I did make these custom cushions:

Custom cushions - acacia and spikey bush

and I did go to Nikki's morning tea which was lots of fun and met lovely peeps.

I also ordered 100 metres of the most amazing organic cotton/hemp fabric too, which we'll be printing on instead of cream cotton/linen from now on - whoooo.

I also digested everyone's feedback on the scale of my Chalk print and decided that I think large scale is the way to go, because personally I want to get more into larger scale and upholstery based applications. And I think I've decided to call it Chalk after all. Although that seems to be one of those words that loses all meaning when you say it too many times...

And... I booked our accommodation for the Sydney Stitches & Craft show! We'll be staying right near the venue in an apartment with the lovely Sandra of Winterwood and Bek from Sprout Design (and I think even Kate from Little Bird). So it'll be a crazy week all 5 or 6 of us living together.

And now back to planning out the week ahead xx

I'm looking forward to stopping by and saying hi to everyone at Stitches and Craft, as well as picking up some Chalk while I'm there!

I am moving into a new apartment in August and I am super inspired by your post! I am thinking some cool cushions like these would be an excellent addition to any room!
