My world in Laminates....did you know ...


Good Morning....

If you ever thought of working with LAMINATES, take a peak at these...

Ok, what are LAMINATES ?...They are  some of YOUR favourite fabrics with a resin on it...I like to compare it to a very soft cloth with a shiny surface....( I can see RBD cringing over that definition..)  lol Ok, let's carry on...What is wonderful about these is that they are easy to wipe down, easy to keep clean, keeps the rain out on a rainy day...  can be worn for months, yes months...there you go...

You may remember my Peg Bag I designed a couple months ago..YEP, their Laminates!



Big apology here...RBD put my post on the wrong page...It is up now effective 12:30 PM EST
same link!



and yes my very own ruffled petit pot...( don't ask) lol
Yep their Laminates again.....


When Riley Blake Designs first came out with their laminates..I thought "oil cloth" from years ago.. Heavy plastic fabric and they smelled...remember that...Oh I can ...WELLLLL I  was sew wrong.....RBD Laminates, are soft, pliable , they don't smell and  are easy to work with once you know some tips...( those will be found on RBD blog today) along with the pattern for something in the CAFE.... (with more patterns to follow). ( their page has not been updated yet..
Laminates don't need to be hemmed, especially when making ruffles..and YOU KNOW I love ruffles...
well they are everywhere here in my Laminate Cafe...

Go to Riley Blake Designs, button on OUR blog on the right...that will take you to the Designers Page... I may have  said a few more things over there..... yep I am sure I did lol
( their page has not been updated yet...check back after 9 am)

These are extra photos that I took.... Thought you would like to see ...




This was done with a filter...it was sew hot outside it felt like this lol
Our temps here on the escarpment in Ontario Canada are high 90's and 100...
This has got to stop, it is interfering with my quilting...


As you can see, Sumantra ( seal/rag doll) is never far. I should of called her Velcro. She follows me 
everywhere. Many of you been wondering where she is...well here...with me lol
( this photo without a filter..for some of you camera buffs)
I just pretend to be lol



Time now for Brunch will you join me...



And on the GARDENING FRONT...seems we are now Pepper FARMERS
too...I think we have 3....yes count them 3...oh not 3 plants..
3 peppers...lol

Ok, now shoooo go see what else I did at Riley Blake Designs...
( after 9 am..just checked, still not up, I am up..they are not lol)


p.s Thanks for the all wonderful photos of  timers...they will be
suitable for my wee project for all of you tomorrow.

  2. It looks so inviting! The colors are so bright and cheery, fruit on the table (so healthy!) and a kitty under the table--what more could one ask for! The tablecloth is great with no bulk and no blowing away in the wind. Love it!
