Points of Inspiration: 5: My Sister



You know that Sissy Dunnit is Stephanie over at Luscious Life Studios right?  And she's a designer and a clever clogs and all round good egg, right?  Well, she had some some of her designs committed to fabric just before Christmas.  And then, after a holiday in Australia, Hawaii and England, just to prove she's no slouch, she made these cushions up from her designs.  You'll recognise Lily (at the front) because the original design was bragged about on this blog.  See, Steph took my advice and made a brightly coloured version of it.  It's a beauty aint it, all bright colours and polka dots and you know, it speaks vividly of the fun in my sissy's character. Actually, so did the original, paler, more grown up colour way. You couldn't help but be cheered by these two patterns, huh. 
You know how it is, my advice amounted to a kerjillion emails worth of going on and on and on about loving turquoise and lime, so she changed it to shut me up.  Works for me.  And now it's a fabric...wow, works for her too.  And won't it be amazing when it's a paper or a digi?  Makes me giddy thinking about it.  When I grow up, I'm gonna be just like my big Sister.

Very fresh, funky and uber lovely. I'm surprised you haven't got Jan running up some numbers! You could scan the cushion, print it off and run up another calender!!!

What a talented family Julia. Love those bright colours, just what we need to make us smile on dull January days. Almost enough to make me take up sewing, and I hate sewing.

Gorgeous, very fruity colours!

Shirley Davis said...

I know someone who will love these fabrics and was about to point her to the website and it is taking so many hits, I can't get it. So you've made your sister terrifically popular which makes you a jolly good egg of a sister, doesn't it Ms Dunnit?

BTW, I'm thrilled to be back online after nearly three weeks with no video card. I'll be back tonight (tomorrow YOUR TIME), and raring to go. Thanks so much for sending LLJan my address. I was obviously unable to reply or by the time I learned about it, unable to even get online or on my computer. Thanks again, dear friend. I have missed you!

Julia you are soo funny about being just like your big sister when you grow up (are you going to? I am not dont think anyway!) and then you bully her around like crazy - just like my sisters - they are younger but they bully me like crazy too and we love it so much and yes sooo agree with you in this awesome cushion - really a stunner thanks for sharing Shaz in oz.x
