So on the weekend we decided to do some painting... This is now the first thing you see when you walk in the front door! It is the wall behind our dining table, if you turn around you will then see this:

Then on the other side of the hallway you will see this:

Honestly we only ended up at bunnings to buy a shelf for my sewing area, the paint was impulse!
The orange is Satsuma, Nippon Paints, and the green is Limejuice 2 also Nippon.

And back to fabric, these black, white, grey and red prints are destined for a Insa Skirt for Charlotte for Christmas.

And these two are for a Feliz Dress for Imogene for Christmas.

Laura will be getting a Feliz out of these two.

And the sweet Miss Jocie will be getting an Insa skirt from these sweet prints.
All are from spotlight and the latest voucher I got in the mail, I think it was spend $100 and get $40 off. I also grabbed some machine needles and a new rotary blade while I was there!
The advantage of using these quilting cotton prints for clothes, is that I get to keep the scraps for my quilts! I can't wait to add bits of these to my stash!
A proper "Christmas Plan" post is coming up soon, just need to get rid of this bloody awful cold that has infected me first! 


  1. gorgeous fabrics, can't wait to see the dresses! hope you're on the mend....

  2. Get better soon! Love the wall colors...so fun! The fabrics are great too. I haven't even begun to think of Christmas yet!

  3. Aahh Kelly, I adore your newly painted walls, what glorious colour! We are deciding what colours to paint our house at the moment, and yours are so inspiring. Thanks for sharing them. Gorgeous fabrics too xo

  4. I love the large floral and bird print in brown, blue & orange Kelly. I have some of it I picked up at Joann's in America before I saw it at Spotlight here! Making a little girls dress with it is a great idea - I've been totally unsure what to do with mine - it was just one of those fabrics I had to buy!

  5. What fantastic zingy colours! Love them!! :)
