Sunday Stash #96

The Australia Day Version

Going Native 3 - commissioned by me!

I love Australian native flowers. 
I had them in my wedding bouquet. 
I have just commissioned my first painting by The Art of Wendy Donellan and it is all native. (Actually Wendy was the person who made me fall in love with native flowers back in my twenties).

I am about to pick up my original artwork from her studio in Brisbane and see her exhibition as well. She travelled to France last year to paint beautiful scenes.
Hanging Out in the Woods - SOLD
You can imagine my joy when I found this fabric at Rainbow Patchwork last week. Gorgeous Waratahs from the 'Terra Australis' collection designed by Emma Jean Jansen (an Australian designer)for Ella Blue .

I bought two and a half metres of it to make a cool cotton summer dress. I could not find a suitable pattern  but did also pick up this nifty skirt pattern though.

Rainbow Patchwork are having a Give Away at 200 likers on their Facebook page - only 9 more to go! Join me there.

Linking up to Sunday Stash for the first time in 2014 and now over at Molli Sparkles where it has GROWN exponentially.
