Painted and Stitched

Take a preloved doll bed, some paint and fabric and here it is. 
Ready to go into our store, Eclect.chic. Ready for Christmas. 
We are on fb as Eclect.chic or our newly created page on Instagram is Eclect.chic_vintage. 
Our store is a little corner in Woolloongabba Antique Centre, Brisbane. 
Would love for you to visit. Either online or in store. 

A pic of our store. We are certified agents for Canterbury Blue Furniture Paint, a gorgeous range of furniture paint, infused with minerals and chalk, locally made and in beautiful colours. 
My apologies for sounding a bit like an advertisement. I wanted to explain to those who have asked, where I have been during my blog absence. As you can imagine, this takes a lot of time. The bonus is working with my two amazingly talented daughters.

UFO no longer

After 8 years, it is finally finished. This was a block of month club quilt from Sew This and That, my "local". I had decided to hand quilt it but kept putting off starting it. Once started it has been hand quilted in a month.  Photo has a yellowish tinge to it which shouldn't be.
