Well, it seems after Blogtoberfest I haven't as much energy for blogging, but I know that happens to everyone, so I'm cool with it. I believe in quality not quantity (what I say when people ask why I only have 1 child).
I have had a school mum ask for some sewing, which is great for my advertising (I really am a lazy bum when it comes to shop etc). I made an Ice Cream Dress top in mermaids (not requested, but wanted to try it)
and a yellow one, as requested by little Miss's school friend aged 7. My joy was twofold when I learnt a new technique of gathering (new to me, anyway)- shirring elastic in the bobbin, cotton on top. A bee-yoo-ti-ful gather, I like-ey!
And another birthday- mine, and great friends helped Little Miss shop. I love it when kids get you something from their favourite shop, and mine is no different- I get lots of gifts from Smiggle! Which is cool, what a cute pencil and tin! Apparently I borrow her pencils too much.....
Earrings and a card made my day, and there was a post it note treasure hunt at 7am (wish it was in braille as my eyes weren't even open).
More sewing stuff- my trip to GJ's today saw some great fabric discounts ($8 a metre instead of $22), the pinking blade was a b'day gift off a friend, isn't it perfect?
There's a market coming up, pencil rolls to make and deliver, and phew, a kid will turn 7
soon- isn't it Xmas yet?
