Another Stunning Day at the Office!

Look at what arrived today! A whole stash of delectable fabrics! It'll be a struggle to part with these, I'm sure. I'll have to make a cushion in every fabric by the end of the week, or I might just pop. You want to peak? I know you do. 

Heres a little snippet of my new arrivals. You can purchase all of these at

I've put them on a special 24 hour listing! Grab a bargain. Happy Stitching x

Tampering with Tapestry!

I've been at my machine today, a colleague asked me to turn her tapestry into a cushion. So here's what I came up with, I wasn't overly keen on the tapestry and felt it lacked a little life but now it's had a face lift it looks tempting enough to put on my sofa, although I am sure she'd want it back! I've used Tilda Molly Blue and Inca Blue fabrics for this cushion, which I sell in my shop. You only need a very small piece of something gorgeous to turn it into something worthy of a place in your home. Have a good day and happy stitching. x

A little update and welcome to Patchwork Paradise!

It's been a while since I have had time to catch up with you all but here is a quick update. The last couple of months have been manic, working, working and well more working. I've been setting up my only little business and it's finally hit off the ground and I'm very proud to announce, I have opened a shop where we specialise in smaller pieces of fabric for patchwork and small home furnishings. We stock a lovely range of fabrics from Michael Miller to Tilda and even a little bit of Cath Kidston. Although busy I have managed to finish a couple of stitching projects and here they are for you all to see:

 I've had a real passion for making lampshades recently and this one I sewn by hand, I simply love it for it's vintage but retro style.

I've finished my Emily Peacock Cross Stitch and I'm very happy with it, it's looking rather beautiful next to my handmade bunny, given to me as a gift from my little sister.

I've even tried more modern lampshades, added a bit of Ric Rac and walla! The lampshade looks simply gorgeous, best part is, you can use absolutely any fabric you love, to customise it to suit your home.

So I've been very busy. :)

My little fabric store is called Patchwork Paradise and you can find some lovely fabric bargains and advice from me when ever you need it.

Some of the beautiful fabrics me and my husband stock are shown below. :) Happy Stitching to you all.
