November Rummage...

A big thanks to everyone that came out and braved the heat yesterday. It was a great day to be out and about in Brisbane. Thanks to everyone that stopped by just to say hello or to buy some of my goodies.I really appreciate every ones support.

I was lucky enough to buy this beautiful cushion from the girls of Geranium Creations who were a few suitcases up from me. It was handmade using a gorgeous vintage table cloth. It looks perfect on our couch. You can check out their beautiful handmade wares here.

Now I can't wait until the next market in December.

This is a castle. And we have many tapestries.

This weeks creative space should really revolve around my preparations for the Suitcase Rummage but I thought I might show you a little something else that I have been working on from this wonderful book...

I have always enjoyed needlework such as cross stitch and embroidery but I have never dabbled in tapestry before. After getting Cath Kidston's new book Stitch and falling in love with her union jack designs I though it might be time that I gave it a go.

It is very similar to counted cross stitch but quicker as you don't need to cross all the stitches. It still involves a lot of pesky counting but once you get the main areas in place you can work around them. I also can't help but love stitching in the Kath Kidston colour palette.
