Tuesday Stack - Retro Bake

Anybody for baking?  This last week has seen a lot of new fabrics come in store and I wanted to base the stack around my new favourites (they change on a regular basis).  The Retro Bake fabrics by Timeless Treasures are yummy (excuse the pun!) and this week's stack includes a couple of the prints.

From top to bottom:

Eleanor Ink Floral by Anna Griffin
Peace Garden Teal by Fabric Freedom
Retro Bake Kitchen by Makower
Retro Crosshatch from Windham Fabrics
Retro Bake Utensils from Makower

I also have to show you on of the other baking prints, Retro Bake Spaced, because I love it so much:

What fabric or fabric ranges are you loving at the moment?

Tuesday Stack - Insect

Sorry for my absence last week, it has been a little crazy around here as we get ready for Christmas.  

The fabrics from top to bottom are:

Little Bits by Carrie Bloomston
Bird Dot by Carrie Bloomston
Insect Black by Echino

This week's Tuesday stack is based around Echino Insect in Black.  This print is great and so versatile, I used it in the natural background for Midget's kindle cover (photo below), it is also available in a laminate.

I adapted the i-pad cover tutorial on One Shabby Chick's blog for the kindle cover.  I have one as well for my kindle and I can definitely recommend them. Hmm maybe this could be an idea for some Christmas presents.

Tuesday Stack - Inspired by a Quilt

This week's Tuesday's stack is inspired by Raewyn's quilt.  We spent an hour one Friday afternoon pulling out fabrics to get the combo just right.

Boy Crazy Cars by Riley Blake
Circus Green Stripe by Nancy Wolff for Kokka

And the finished top looks amazing (please excuse my poor photos).  A close up:

The Vintage Toys fabric also comes in a beautiful Blue which looks lovely made up.  Here it is in a baby's bib and shoes that we sell in store.

Sunday Scrapping - Christmas Stockings

Yesterday afternoon I played in my scrap bag.  I have been making Christmas stockings which I will sell in the shop.  This one was the prototype.

Several more are now at various stages of production.  All I need now is a beautiful old mantle to display them on.

Have you started your Christmas crafting?
