Handmade Cushion Cover

 I recently received this little parcel from my sister in Australia. She runs her own business, Wee Jennie Wren, customising children's clothes using recycled fabrics. She also makes some home accessories and other lovely pretty things. Here's a link to her Facebook page or if you're in WA you can find her at various markets around Perth. 


I love the fabric of this cushion cover and am thinking it might be nice in a nursery if we're having a girl.

You're so very welcome my dear sister! xx Now I'm thinking...since I'm becoming friendlier with my sewing machine that maybe I should make a matching quilt? Of course it will probably be a boy but you could use it elsewhere. XX

Hi Sarah Elizabeth,

I hope you don't mind me getting in touch. I found your details on your website and I hope you might be able to help me with my strange request…

I am a Producer working on a television show called House Hunters International which follows English speaking expats in their quest to purchase a house abroad. I wonder if you or any of your expat contacts might be interested in getting involved?! Please find a little blurb about the show below:

House Hunters International is a half-hour program currently airing on the Home and Garden Television Network (HGTV) in America.
The series is designed to de-mystify the international home-buying process by going behind the scenes of a house hunt where buyers and their real estate agents tour 3 homes.

At its core, House Hunters International is a travel show concentrating on the idiosyncrasies of the locales and what makes them special and different.

You can watch some examples of the show here:

Please get in touch if you have any more questions about the show. I look forward to hearing from you!

Best wishes and many thanks,

Michelle

Interesting comment from Michelle. I wrote on an earlier blog post of yours that I thought your house that you are currently renovating was on House Hunters International. Hope you are doing okay since you haven't written in awhile.
