Paris Inspiration

IMG_0353 (2)


It is no secret I adore Paris. We spent 17 amazing days based in an apartment in the Marais. Each day was filled with long walks interspersed with stops to browse through magical shops, visit galleries, sip coffee & wine and eat truly delicious food. I hope to do it again.  I am sure these experiences subconsciously influence my designs.  So it is thrilling to know this design is heading to Paris as a gift.  It is like a little bit of me will be there.

The images uses to showcase my designs are from a book by Janelle McCulloch “Paris. A guide to the city’s creative heart” I devoured the content prior to visiting Paris and it was a valuable guide to less well known nooks and crannies.


I stitch everywhere - Me and Mrs Jones

Following the southern coastline from Esperance to home we paused for refreshments in the beautiful village of Denmark. David was in need of food and I had a craving for something sweet.  Mrs Jones Cafe was a quaint little cafe serving delicious food.  I can recommend it.

Inspiration comes from everywhere.  I love flowers and hope one day I will live in an environment where I can have hydrangeas and tumbling roses.

Glorious corduroy

I love corduroy, so it was only a matter of time before it crept into my designs.  This week I have 5 new bags to sell at the Smart Street Parties Friday 7th March 2014.
