A can't miss... Moon Shine from Tula Pink!



Moon Shine is a fantasy camping trip full of mystery and wonder. Find the deer hiding in the daisies and the bear who ran off with all of the food, a paper boat floats down the stream and a mouse holes up in a woodland tree house. In typical Tula Pink fashion this narrative is set against a backdrop of vibrant color with a touch of elegance and whimsy. Moon Shine is a day dream where anything is possible and reality is replaced by imagination, here, anything is possible.

New... Snapshot from Verna Mosquera!



I am always amazed by the inspiration that daily life brings. My newest collection, Snapshot, grew from a simple moment in time when I looked across the table and realized that my one time little boy had grown into a young man. How did those years go by so quickly? I couldn't stop looking. In that moment completely unnoticed by him I took a mental Snapshot of him that will live in my mind forever.  When he left for school I moved into my studio and began my newest collection. It began with sepia as it is so  representative of an old photograph. Then I added pink, such a natural companion. Next came aqua, green and a hint of yellow, all colors used in days gone by. As I worked the color palette images of vintage photographs came to mind. Those images then sparked other delicate ideas - roses, small birds and more. Bit by bit Snapshot grew into something both lovely and nostalgic. Of course being the true romantic that I am it will always remind me of my son.

Free project highlight - Sunset on the Mountain Pillows from Zandra Rhodes

Brighten up any space with this vibrant pillow from Lace Mountain.



For this Lace Mountain collection I have delved into my vast Rhodes repertoire of wiggles, stitching, frills and flowers. Lace Mountain represents memories of Australia’s Ayers Rock (The “Lace Mountain”), and the spinifex grass that grows around it. The way the imagery is interpreted is influenced by my mother and my sewing background. - Zandra Rhodes
