this is how the cross stitch / embroidery project turned out! no where close to the cool books that my mom used to stitch and cover, but not too bad! 1x strelitzia, 1x protea and 1x madiba at R299 each..... that might just be that!!!
absolutely love the new design team fabrics, used this range to make some cushions, R399 each 40cm x 50cm

.....lawn ornaments anybody?

I am really not a fan of lawn ornaments! Keep it inside I say! But .... might be able to make an exception for these cuties from factory 20, though I know Morgan will take offense and pounce first chance she gets! 

I would love to have this for my studio! Would feel so organised! I love the look and feel of these pics, their site is well worth a visit for some inspiration if like for me, shopping is not an option!


I enjoy the fun way that this old chair has been re styled! Inspired me to do some embroidery....

.....re-cycled flooring

Our "pallet parquet" flooring is 100% re-cycled and completely natural! I am so glad that we've had such a great response! Originally used for display, we are now looking at installation methods that would make this usable in domestic and commercial environments! Loads of work ahead!

.....coral tree

The jacs had a fab time at the show! I decided that the coral tree branches would make a beautiful backdrop for them.I am quite stubborn and once I have a picture in my mind of how I want something to look, I don't really compromise easily! Still have cuts on my hands from this "picking" experience. Looked like a total twit, fat girl, hanging from a tree on the M19, cutting flowers..... worth it though they looked beautiful!
