Fabric Rep

Recently I saw a beautiful fabric online that had Rabbits and Mushrooms on it.
Two of my favourite things on beautiful Linen Cotton.
I managed to find out who brings the fabric into New Zealand.
I emailed the company and they called me to ask if I would like there rep to visit me.

I explained that I am only a small business.
They assured me that I was not too small.
So the lovely Vivienne from "Nutex" came out to see me.
We spent half an hour or so looking at all the beautiful fabrics that will be coming to NZ in 
future months and she even had some end of lines for sale.
I had a wonderful time and I felt most special.
 So I placed a yummy order.

My Rabbits and Mushroom fabric is coming in October (which I will share with you then).
In the meantime I bought a gorgeous end of line fabric that I can use on my Animal Cushions and purses.

Here is a peak of it backing a couple of my "Mr FOX" cushions.

You can find the "MR FOX"  cushion in my online store

Right Now

 It has been a busy seven weeks since I last did a post.
I have been busy stocking stores with my designs and
some great things have happened along the way.
One of my "Mr Fox" Hotwater Bottle Covers was given as a gift on 
National Television on a programme called "STORY".
This was most exciting for me. 
A big Thank you to all the people that ordered covers off of me after seeing Mr Fox on TV.

Master O is now in his 3rd week at a small Steiner Home school of seven children.
He is absolutely loving it and wakes up every morning singing.
This is a bit of a change for us as two days a week he finishes at 1pm 
and another two days he finishes at 2pm. 
So I have made a work space for him in my studio where he sits and does
 homework while I sew away.
I am really enjoying this afternoon time with him.

New designs have been happening.
Little Kiwi's are popping up on Hotwater Bottle Covers, Ipad Cases and Purses.

All year my wonderful mother and I have been sewing Pixies for Christmas.
The first 20 Pixies went out to a store today and another 20 are off to Wellington tomorrow.
The silly season is about to start.

So even though I have not been blogging so much of late, I am here in the studio working away.
I leave you with this lovely quote that I read the other day.
