Sunday Sunshine...

I always wake up happy on a Sunday. It's my favourite day. Look at my kitchen table this morning, I mean really, how could you see this much sunshine and not be happy!?!

Maybe your Sunday sees you having some sewing time (I hope so for you). It seems plenty of you out there are making or going to make the 'Sweet Scraps Table Runner' featured in the latest issue of Vignette; maybe that's what you're up to today:

I had a ball stitching up this long skinny runner using the scraps from my 'Vignette In Stitches' Quilt:

Some Spring blossom on the runner completes the picture:

Anyway, enough chatting for now, hope you are enjoying Issue 8 of Vignette as much as I loved putting it all together for you!

Vignette Issue 8...

Hi girls! Welcome back to my little page here in the wonderful world of the internet! I hope you have received your copy of Vignette 8. My wish is that you are loving it as much as I enjoyed creating it for you:

Today I thought I'd show you just a few photos that happened on the way to a front cover:

There are literally hundreds of shots snapped before "It's a wrap" and I can sit down and select just one photo for the front. This one almost made it:

Hope you are having a sweet weekend,

Friday In The Studio...

Lots of photography today in the studio for the Issue 11 cover of Vignette magazine (that will be for June/Winter 2013). It seems lots of people have asked me in the last few days just how to pronounce Vignette. It's easy: Say 'Vin-yet'. It's a delicious French word that means many things, including: "a small engaging scene, view or picture":

I love making little vignettes around my studio to inspire me daily. Then of course I love to play with my camera and snap a few shots:

Started feeling decidedly 'Marie Antoinette' after playing around with a new pincushion project using fun photo frames from Typo (great stationary etc. store!):

Inspired by Marie Antoinette and her love of bling and pretty I had a pretty good time in the studio today:

Also inspired by this divine range of fabric called 'Gypsy Girl' by Lily Ashbury for Moda. Really, how could you see this fabric and not be inspired!?!

Have a great long weekend girls (if you are in Melbourne like me).I will be spending my long weekend in lockdown in the studio putting the finishing touches on Vignette Issue 9 - due out December. Happy!
