Cushions galore

Hello! Apologies for the radio silence on the blog for such a long time… It’s been a big year and now it’s almost over!

But before that it’ll be Christmas and there are lots of goodies in the Touch Wood Design Etsy store if you need to stock up for the silly season!

If you’d like to keep up with my adventures in sewing, pop over to the Touch Wood Design Instagram account.

Big thank you

Thanks to everyone who dropped by to say hi at the GOMA Christmas Design Market last Saturday! After a sticky, humid morning we were very glad to feel the cool afternoon breeze – and see so many people carrying bags of handmade gifts!

As always, you can find my cushions over in the Touch Wood Design Etsy store and if there’s somthing you missed out on, you’re most welcome to send me a message and I can make another one for you.

Roll up, roll up!

One last cushion to go on the big stack ready for this Saturday’s QAGOMA Christmas Design Market – outside the Gallery of Modern Art at South Brisbane from 9am to 4pm. It’s our biggest market yet, with 40 stallholders. Hope to see you there!

Even more flower power

Red daisies this time around… or are they zinnias? More flower power for my cushion stall at the GOMA Christmas Design Market this Saturday 28 November outside the gallery at South Brisbane. The market will run from 9am to 4pm – hope to see you there!

Big thank you!

Thanks to everyone who popped by the GOMA Winter Design Market yesterday! It was a lovely day for it! Always great to catch up with other creative types and watch people hugging cushions!

Two-colour twist

I think I’m officially ready for the markets this Saturday! I’ll be taking quite a few new cushions along, including this variation on my South African postage stamp design – I tried a two-colour twist so the letters could sit more cosily together.

See you this Saturday outside the Gallery of Modern Art at South Brisbane!

A little bit wintry

Here’s the official postcard for the next GOMA markets – coming up very soon on Saturday 1 August. Hopefully the wild westerlies we’ve had the past couple of days will take a break and we’ll have a lovely winter’s day for it!

Yes, that’s another of my postage stamp cushions you see on the postcard!

More spotty cushions

Spots must be flavour of the month! These Japanese reproduction barkcloth ones were very popular during the Japanese fashion show at QAGOMA and I’ve only just had the chance to make some more. If you’ve been looking for them, you’ll find them over in the Touch Wood Design Etsy store.

Classic spots

Haven’t made these ones for a while – classic spots with a Mid Century twist. This reproduction barkcloth is well and truly out of print now, but I still have a little stash of it… You’ll find these cushions in the Touch Wood Design Etsy store.

A whale of a time

The Norwegian whale has come out of retirement. This incarnation is swimming in a minty green ocean…
