Pop-up at Little Boat Espresso

Last night we collaborated with Little Boat Espresso, for a fun shopping night at their cafe in Marcoola on the Sunshine Coast. Little Boat served deliciously good street food and a handful of local makers including; Lucky44, Weavings by Penrose, CoolBabyCool, LittleLaundry, StylePalace and I had our products available for sale.

So many locals turned out to make it a success and I am grateful to Sara for hosting this event in her space. Such a great night... I hope we can do it again! :)

vintage ticking is the bee's knees

What a great mail day...some wonderful, old mattress ticking arrived from NY last week. 

Nervous as I was to 'cut' into it, the fabric didn't sit around for long before I stitched up some smart cushions from it. Just the woven quality of the navy ticking is so good, but paired with some grey linen and filled with a feather/down insert, these cushions are a beautiful addition to your bedroom or favourite chair. 

Now available in my store.

August 2015 Country Style Magazine

I was pretty pleased to spy one of my vintage blankets in this month's edition of Australian Country Style Magazine. Set amongst a gorgeous selection of products made from Australian Wool, sits a grey wool blanket with red blanket stitch (left hand page). I feel blessed to be invited to contribute one of my pieces, and very grateful to stylist Phoebe McEvoy for the opportunity.

Feature in Winkelen Magazine

This month I am thrilled to have a little feature in the beautiful 'Winkelen Magazine' to talk about my creative pursuits and in particular - Perpetual One and its roots.

Being the first birthday issue there are some amazing Aussie artists and businesspeople, so I feel just a little lucky to included amongst them. Thank you to Samantha for your generosity and support of creatives.

the year so far...

We are well into 2015 and I haven't stopped to document some of the new good things that have been happening.
BIRTHDAY: The year started with a happy getaway with my family to Melbourne for my (significant) birthday - which was so much fun. We enjoyed the tennis, the Mornington Peninsular and some city sights.

This year, my work in communications has stepped up and my time for Perpetual One has been significantly reduced. However - I have still been busy with several custom orders and tested out a new product I've had in mind for a while now.
NEW PRODUCT: I've created cushion covers using second-hand swags. For those who love the great outdoors, camping or hammocks, these make a great statement with their rustic green canvas and a hand-stencilled label to suit. 

CUSTOM BLANKETS: As the winter months roll in we have also begun making several custom blankets as gifts. Paired with smart RAN insignia and other patches, plus custom stitched labels, these are a personal and cosy gift for loved ones, or to treasure as a keepsake.

More news soon....
