Sunday Stash #68 – Patchwork on Pittwater
This week’s Sunday Stash is coming to you live from Canada, as Work-in-Progress Girl has taken on hosting duties. I think we’ve synchronised our posts for the same time, but I’m still a bit dizzy from last night’s champagne, so hope for the best!
As for my contribution this week? Oh J to the Lo, I found a new fabric shop! Patchwork on Pittwater is on the northern side of Sydney harbour, a place I don’t get to very often. Well, I think I’m gonna have to get a kayak and start making the trek! The place was fully stocked with fabrics from current, designer ranges, as well as some older ones that I missed the first time around.
Robyn, the shop owner, has baskets full of fat quarters, all 5 for $20. So naturally, I bought 10. I felt that was the constrained thing to do! I had so, so, so been wanting these Charley Harper bits. Those cardinals are the epitome of mid-century modern!
Have you guys heard of Saffron Craig? I’m sure most of you have, but if you haven’t, you must check out her organic fabrics. These three are all from her Valley View range. She often finds inspiration from Australian flora and fauna, and transforms them into fantastical illustrations and patterns.
Now this business here, were three I hadn’t seen before. Which, as you can imagine, is an experience I don’t feel all that often! The two whale prints are from Hearty Good Wishes by Janet Clare for Moda. Aren’t they darling?! Y’all know I don’t really do novelty prints, but I think these have a fanciful sophistication about them. The Scenic Woodgrain is from Scenic Route by Deena Rutter, and my sketch book is full of designs for that one!
For all you Tula Troops out there, I picked up these two prints from Saltwater. I had the Submarines and Seaweed print already, but I really do love it, so figured it was good to snatch some more up before it’s selling for $87 on Instagram. The Sea Stripes, were well, just because! Does anyone else find stripes frustratingly difficult to work with? I generally do try to avoid them, but the spirit of Tula will surely guide me!
