More New Stock

My eBay store bolted out of the gates at the beginning of the year and I've never been so busy. Now things have quietened down a little, my sewing helper and I have had time to make up some new fabrics.

I'm really loving these bold geometric, Ikat spot and chevron designs
in tangerine with white,
 marine blue with white
and corn yellow with white
 $49.95 for set of 2 cushion covers from  My Cushion Covers

New in Store

Lemon/yellow Suzani cushion covers, new in my shop this week

I've never been afraid of colour and I've always loved yellow. So glad yellow is fashionable, especially with grey and black.

The Decluttering Bug

I think I must have been vaccinated against this at an early age because until recently, I've never caught so much as the mildest case.
But on the weekend, we took part in a garage sale and I can tell you it felt wonderful to get rid of so much stuff. 
We dragged things down from the loft. Things I'd forgotten we had and other stuff, like the carnival glass jug, that I never did like but kept for years because someone gave it to me.
We hung pictures on the walls of the garage - my idea, typical! 
And got rid of goodness knows how many presents we'd been given over the years. Why do people give homewares to decorators? 
I've developed a serious dislike for candles, sorry, 'home scents' so it was good to see the back of these.
Not to mention this pair of giant jute tassels, 
 this old gate, 
 a bag of tangled diving gear, 
and a couple of rather small tents.
Well, I'm happy to say we are now the proud non-owners of much of the above. So that's the loft sorted, just have to get stuck into the rest of the house!
