i spy style + the ottoman empire

I thought you might be interested in these couple of snippets from the small world of Yardage Design.


Allison just emailed to tell me that Yardage Design (and lots of others in the Incubator section of the show) were featured on the I Spy Style website in the trends section - how cool is that! Thanks, Kate - for noticing us and for having such an amazing design website.

Andi (from Patch Andi) also emailed me yesterday with the most amazing results of her fabric buying at the show. Using all handprinted, Australian designer fabrics (including some of mine - yay!), she made a patchwork slipcover for an ottoman. All of the fabrics just look so stunning together ...



Andi's inspiration was this lovely ottoman - I reckon Andi's is way better though ;o). Read more about it here. I want one!

P.S. I have been overwhelmed by the response to my giveaway (closes tomorrow night)- thanks is not enough for some of the lovely comments - I am very grateful for your support ... thank you.
