I have a new fabric designer to add to my favourites list. Erin McMorris. And her latest fabric collection is called Park Slope by Free Spirit Fabric. I mentioned in my previous post I'd finally bought some of this wonderfully happy and bright fabric. And here's a look at my new fabric piles, they look so pretty together.
I found this fabric at the Fat Quarter Shop. Great service, I had my fabric (and there were some extra fat quarters I purchased as well, but that's for another post) within a week of ordering.
Below is a sneaky peek of my first project sewn with my new Park Slope fabric. I can't give too much away just yet as it's for my swap partner in Mel's gratitude swap group.
I'll finish off today with the links to two fabulous little stores I visited last week. A friend and I go off every couple of months on little shopping trips around Sydney. We both have a love of food and crafty things, so we're finding (or in some cases re-discovering) great little spots around Sydney. Our last visit found us in Summer Hill and Leichhardt.
I used to live in Leichhardt for a few years when I was first married. Emily spent the first 11 months of her life there (which is why we say she loves her pasta having spent many evenings in her pram while Paul and I had pasta for dinner in the fabulous cafe's along Norton Street). Anyway, back to last week. Here's two stores we visited:
- Rick Rack Retro : Stepping into this store was like stepping back into my childhood.
- Reclaim : Monica Trapaga's fabulous store full of beautiful things.
That's all for now. School holidays start today - YAY. I say it every time "I love school holidays!"
Thanks for visiting my blog.
