Anniversary Cushions - Wedding, Birthday, Occasion!! xx

Hi Everyone... How are you doing? 
Just a quick post to tell you i am still alive and well :)
We had a wonderful Christmas and New Years and Im really excited for what 2014 will bring. 
This year im going to venture into the world of Local Markets! I'm a bit nervous... Its kinda scary putting yourself out there for people to look at you and look at what your selling... But I thought it might be fun... 
Afterall i do love sewing and i love making bits and pieces... so i thought I would start with these....
 Anniversary Cushions.... 
What ya think??? 
I had seen a few out there in the world of etsy etc but couldnt find one i actually wanted myself. I liked having the numbers all join together so its more of a point of interest as to
 "What is that number??" 
Than a cushion that was separated with dots or dash's.... i felt those ones screamed DATE! Everytime you looked at em...!
 
So i decided to make one for me, the way i would like mine...
 Then.... My Sister saw it and she wanted one... 
 Then my Sister in Law saw it and wanted one too...
 Then my mum saw it and wanted one as well.... 
 and i thought... Maybe i could make them for people as pressies for wedding gifts etc.... Or for Kids Birthdays?? This one was for my Indi...
Which then led me to doing my first Market AND I decided that I would start to 
sell them online 
from my Etsy shop HERE
 
Soooooooo.......
Which one would you get??
I Make them in Natural Burlap, Cream Burlap and Natural linen....
Withe numbers in Black, White, Pink and Gold...
 Thats what Ive been up to.....
 How about you????
xxx I do miss you guys.... I miss my online buddies and our chats here and there. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year...
AND i hope 2014 is wonderful for you!!!!
xx Bec

also.... for my International Friends that want one.... I sell just the cushion cover... so its easy to post!! To get your insert.... just pop into your local IKEA... They have inserts there for super cheap!! Polyester and Feather!! xx

New Quilt Pattern "French Connection" for Bloggers Quilt Festival!!!

Hello Everyone!!!! I know its been a while since i jumped on to blog. Well, a little more than a while... but i am alive and well, AND surrounded by kids!! My little Kobe baby No. 4 is keeping me on my toes. He is now 18 months! He doesn't sit still much, doesn't sleep well and i cant train him to watch TV, sooooo i don't get a whole lot of time for sewing these days or BLOGGING!!!! But i do get to keep in touch with blogland a nights once the kiddies are in bed.
 
I cant believe that it is Bloggers Quilt festival again!! And I'm excited to be apart of it. Thank you Amy for all you do!!
Here's my offering for the festival. 
"French Connection"
I have had this quilt on my to do list for a while and when the editor of Homespun gave me a nudge, to get a project done for the October edition of the Magazine... i dusted off the machine and whipped up this little number!!
You know me,..... I really like my curves! Ive seen this design/print around alot and have been dying to make it into a quilt.....I was really happy with how it turned out...
What do you think??
Because i LOVE the Bloggers Quilt Festival so much,
 i have pattern for sale......

You can buy it from HERE

The pattern will only be available for one week only...... For the first week of the festival.... and then it wont be able to be available again for a few months..(Magazine rules)
 
You can also buy a copy of the Australian Homespun Magazine in your local newsagent

A Hawaiian Wedding, A Holiday and A Quilt

On September 7th, My little brother Nath and his beautiful Bride Kalou were married for Time and all Eternity in the Hawaiian LDS Temple. 
Lucky for us they chose Hawaii to get married. 
 
My brother Nath lives in Hawaii, Eden and her husband came from Canada, we had other Relo's come from Canada... and we flew over from Australia. 
It was so great to all meet up and have an AMAZING 3 week holiday together!!
We stayed a week in Waikiki... a week at the Turtle bay Resort and a week back in Waikiki...
Of course... I had to make him a quilt for their new little place and being Hawaii and all.... it had to be beachy!! (Actually, i know he'd kill me if i had made it floral)
and.... what's a beach quilt without a few little beach huts??
For the back of the quilt... i just kept it simple and in the traditional Red and Yellow Aussie Surf Life Saving Colours.
As you can imagine we had such a great time...
Relaxing, shopping, sunbaking, wedding celebrations, dinners, restaurants, walks, snorkelling, and the best part....just all being together.
The happy couple...
The Beautiful bride!...
We love you guys xx
 
 and Kalou....
Welcome to the family!!
I'm SOOOO stoked to have another sister!! xx
