I finally got the chance to visit Sydney and start the first of my Christmas drinks. It was a bittersweet, farewell/catch up with my good friend Kirsty! We had a long cruisy lunch at Manly Wine. It was hard to leave, such a gorgeously decorated bar with views of the ocean and Kirsty ;) I had to refrain myself from photographing all the interiors, so I just kept the photo's to my model friend, rocking a Elkhorn Scarf and our yummy Giggly Rose cocktails!
Kirky hope you have good travels home and a fantastic Italian Christmas! xx Miss you!
Only 4 days left of making and creating for Elkhorn, then back to Sydney for some more festive fun!

I love making one-off cushions... not that all our cushions are not "one-off" and individual, as they are all handmade. But it's good to have a break from the norm... it helps keep me sane! I often have a few side projects on the go, mostly experiments & a mix up of our current designs. They do become a labour of love and sometimes it's hard to let them go... but one can only have so many cushions.
My favorite part is adding small touches of stitching, I love seeing natural cord next to sparkles of gold. Here are a few of my favs, some of which have already gone to a good home.

Some how it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I don't know how it happened but the festive season, seemed to of rubbed off onto Elkhorn's latest limited edition(very limited), Table Runners & Dahlia Tanks. We have combined soft neutral colours with pop's of bright red to create, fresh table features & vibrant tanks! These will be at our stall at The Finders Keepers this Friday night & Saturday! I will be saying goodbye to my collection of swans, planted with sweet little Haworthia succulents, unless I am the only person in love with them... in which case I will gladly take them home again.
Okay, I love the rain but it has to stop so we can finish the last of our screen printing!!
So come along for some crazy good Christmas shopping. Mother Elkhorn and I will be there Friday night and Gbone & Libby will be helping me out Saturday so come say Hi!!
