Patchwork isnt just for quilts

lots of work to complete.....in the next week :-/

One of my not quite finished projects is this chair....... Its needs me to make some double welt cord in the matching fabrics to finish the edge and hide the staples.

I bought these two chairs on ebay earlier this year at the bargain price of $90AUD,
and I had been scouring pinterest for ideas.

In my travels I found a very cute blog (which I bet everyone except me knew about) called Mustard Seed Interiors 
well worth a look if you like painting/ redoing furniture.

Any way the chair was mentioned back here when I was painting it.

I'll do a post on all the products and techniques I used (promise)once I finish the double welt cord and hot glue gun it on.

not a bad transformation ??

Magazines, Books & Jam

I cant believe this month has gone by so quickly!......

I've been busily working away in my backyard shed and teaching patchwork in Sydney.
The usual family mayhem has been happening and I'm getting prepared for my trip to NYC!

I leave in a week and a bit and cant wait :)
I was in NYC around this time last year - Hopefully its not as hot and sticky this time around (first world problems).

The last week has seen lots of happy mail coming through

below are some mags & a book that I have some work in.

A new UK magazine with a story on me :) 

& Erin Burke Harris's new Book with lots of pics of my quilts :) 

I also made some strawberry and vanilla jam ....... The Kids were hungry & I was too busy & running late to take a picture!

maybe over the weekend when its not so hectic I can share my jam & scones recipe....with pictures
