Coffee fuelled cushions

I spent some time catching up with one of my friends this morning. I always come away feeling inspired & confident about my creative endeavours after talking to her. She made me a very strong coffee which had me buzzing all afternoon. When i reached home I through all that caffeine fuelled energy into designing & making some new cushions for my little label. Just need to insert the zips & I'll be sorted.
Does coffee get you buzzing?

Stitching up some sunshine

I've been loving stitching up this random patchwork, soon to be a single bed size quilt. Tropical flower print & pineapples bringing a sunshiny feel to my studio today on this cold grey day we are having.

My first attempt at a raggy flannelette quilt using upcycled florals.
This photo is prior to machine fluffing, which shall make it even more cosy.
I'm loving experimenting with the new photo app from A Beautiful Mess, very cute graphics indeed.

Aussie cushions and Autumn cricket.

I have been whipping up a few more cushions in my Aussie Fauna series.. but alas I have only one remaining to be sewn up & that is a beautiful lyrebird.
These latest ones all contain that gorgeous blue sky with my favourite being the now extinct Tassie Tiger (although some people claim to see one now & then but can never prove it).
The Autumn days of late have been unseasonably warm but we aren't complaining. It really has been so lovely to get out in the sunshine, just like the afternoon a couple of weeks ago when we took the kids to a great bike park where we finished the daylight hours playing cricket beneath the towering eucalypts.
