A patched and pieced lampshade made yesterday and finished this morning. This is something I feel like I've been doing for ever, repurposing old scraps and left overs but have only just given this way of working a name – SCRAPCLOTH. And so obviously it needs a hashtag #scrapclothfabric and importantly a handle @scrapclothjulie

99:365 This is Twice Lucky our first little home in the Mountains with my first ever proper studio out the back. When I first lived here, there were no plants just red earth getting washed away every time it rained. I planted all these natives that have grown so big you can barely see the house from the road any more. Lots of small birds hang around now because its a nice safe place to be. We've moved to different house, down the road a bit and this little cutie we rent out for people who want a bit of peace and quiet and maybe a studio to work in. Dogs are welcome too because the back yard is fully fenced. Blackheath is just about perfect right now what with the crispy blue sky weather and falling leaves, just saying. @twiceluckyblackheath

Detail of another shade just finished. Over dyed indigo jute and hemp. I've got a new name for these products – SCRAPCLOTH and I've just this evening created a new insta account too. @scrapclothjulie. I'll be posting the finished pieces and their making process there. Curtains and cushions too. All using fabric leftovers.

Just finished sewing together these four lengths of fabric that will shortly become four very large hanging lampshades for a brand new house in Melbourne. Each 2.6 meter length will become the circumference and if you know your Pi you can work out the diameter. This is a lovely commission from a couple who visited Lord Howe Island and liked the shades I made for Arajilla resort about three years ago. They wanted something similar to remember their holiday. I love jobs like this.

95:365 Protea and sleeping dog. Picked a fallen protea on this mornings walk around the neighborhood and then me and harry sat on the back deck with a coffee and sketch book in the lovely autumn sunshine. Should be in studio working but this moment was too good to rush.
