Gotta love Fabricabrac

Thanks to my trusty helpers, Phoebe and Bella, emma enjoyed another great Fabricabrac.
Although I could only be there to set up I felt our collection of fabric gems was in good hands and with the occasional mandatory cupcake break some great bargains were had and much inspiration shared.
There are so many treasures you have to watch you don't leave with more than you arrive with but I was immediately seduced by this delectable swan/water lily doilly at the table opposite. I don't know yet what I'll eventually make with it but for now it's being ever so pretty helping display brooches on my cabinet at emma.

scarves, skirts & more

A few new items have hit the racks at emma to help keep those winter chills away!
The Popette reversible skirt comes in chocolate or grey marle merino wool/modal one side and when flipped becomes a cute stripe skirt. The name says it all, it is totally reversible-got to love those two for one pieces.
We've also stocked up on some scrummy neck wrap/scarves to add a bit of zing to your winter gear - woolly, stripe, merino, red, orange, green-it's a great easy update.
And not to forget the new emma staple the long line terese tank top in merino wool. It's comfy, cosy and so handy to add layer upon layer, upon layer....

and then there were more...

Just had to show you the latest members of the emma (OWL) family.
Tea-cosy owl has haunted me for the last couple of months and finally I found one of my own-it's peaceful now and very nice to have settled home on my shelves:)
Then my dear friend Emma (yes, jinks!) sent me this ever so lovely print from Hobart of a very wonderful owl to grace my workroom/shop wall. So perfect, thank you. I haven't had it framed yet, as can't bear to let it fly away for long, but will soon , promise.
What is it about owls that makes us love them so?

Fabric-a-brac is back!

It's all the fun of the fair and it's all about fabric (+buttons, vintage notions, trims, patterns etc...)
How good is that!
There hasn't been a Fabricabrac for awhile so you know they'll be loads of treasures to discover and make your own. They've even got someone on-site to sharpen scissors so bring yours along and they'll be no excuse not to get creatively cutting!
emma's got a table booked and we're busy digging up some choice cuts to tempt and inspire you clever clogs out there:)

Don't forget it's a new venue!
St.Anne's Hall, Emmett St, Newtown.
Saturday 19th June 9-noon.
