MagnifiScent Flowers

Kirsten from MagnifiScent Flowers put together a little flower arrangement for our stall at Magnolia Square. We already had so many things to prepare for the Elkhorn stall set-up, so it was one less thing to think about. She took our concept on board and came back the next day with the sweetest Water Lillie's. They finished the stall off beautifully and received so many compliments & comments. Thanks Kirsten, for your professional & stylish touch! Look forward to meeting you again soon and discussing Brooklyn in more detail x

 Elkhorn's WOW factor!

Magnolia Square was such fun, hot & crazy, that I ended up in bed for two days after with a cold. I have made it to the computer today with a million tissues & herbal tea to keep me going. I didn't have much time to leave our stall, so a lot of the photos are a little Elkhorn focused. Mag Square was a wonderful market... we made lots of new friends. It was great to meet fellow textiles designers Materialistic, feed the dog and States of Nature, the range of different textiles designers constantly amazes me, each with their own unique twist. I highly recommend this curated market, it was well worth it. If you didn't manage to make it this time be sure to check their 2011 events calendar, we hope to make it to next years Feb event at the new venue Paddington Town Hall. Thanks to everyone who braved the heat and came along. Oh, I nearly forgot to mention our stall won, one of the WOW factor awards selected by stylist Jason Grant !! It was super exciting and very unexpected.

Magnolia Square this weekend!!!


We have four more days until we set up for the Magnolia Square curated market at Randwick... I am excited and nervous at the same time! It's 3 full days... starting Fri Nov 12th till Sun 14th. So these next few days are going to be crazy, finishing off table runners, dahlia tanks, cushions... ahhhh a bit of everything. I have been following the Magnolia Square Snippets - blog this past couple of weeks, each day features a designer from the upcoming market AND Wow there are some very talented people, which I can not wait to meet! We are currently featured... super exciting!!
Hopefully we will get sometime to do a little Christmas shopping.
So please come along for some unique Christmas shopping and tell all your friends!

Dahlia Muslin Baby Wrap

On a little side project, we have been making a few baby wraps for new baby friends.  The only coloured muslin I could find was the standard baby pastels, and that's just not fun. I wanted something bright and cheerful, so I decided to hand dye it a bright turquoise. I have to thank Mother Elkhorn for undertaking the dying & sewing... well she nearly did it all but I lay claim to the screen printing! After making these, I thought they could double as beach blankets or scarves, if cut long ways? What do you think? I might make a few more and try them out at the Magnolia Square Markets next week!
Heading to Wollongong tomorrow to meet baby Aidan, so I will have to get a photo of him all wrapped up in it. Cute.
