3 Weeks to go!!!! BIDM here we come

Wow can you believe its only three weeks to go until we dawn the streets of Hamilton again.... Well my weekend was full of cramming which included finishing off all of my stash of unfinished sewing (thats because I get so bored easily and have lots of new designs going around in my head) then there was catching up with friends which always turns into more than just catching up and feeling a bit seedy the nexyt day! then it was family time and went for a trip to Bribie yesterday to reconnect with the kids and hubby!!!! Get home and crammed a few more dresses in then made a roast lamb and then started the weekly washing of uniforms and work clothes.....Does it ever stop for the working mum I think not!  Lucky for my multi vitamins and Berocca!  So if I took a photo of my work space right now and posted it people would be in shock!!!  It looks like someone has ransacked my room or a tornado which ever one you can identify with mess!!!!  Well heres to another jam crammped week ladies.  Happy Creating!

Did I mention that my favourite colours are Pink and Green
You will notice that most of the material I chose is of green
Pink Hues.  I love blue too but I find it really hard to find
funky prints in blue.  If you know of any cool sites that have
funky blue fabric I would love to know.  Well better get
back to work lunch is now officially over!

A sewing Moment.. Do you have these

I entered my sewing room yesterday with all good intentions..... I started sewing all the little frilly pants and as I was admiring the selection of material and how cute these little pants were turning out but something just didn't look right... Now mind you when I entered my little cave I did have words with my significant other half so was probably not concentrating as much as I should have... Well I placed the frills on the front of the pants instead of the back. Dear oh Dear I threw the pants in the air and walked out of my room got myself a nice glass of white wine and went and sat around the pool.. Now I am kicking myself for waisting a whole afternoon lazing around and not being productive. Ah well I have a few orders for some pillowcase dresses so have to get back into it tonight.

So Shabby but So Chic, my bags are beautifully created with designer fabrics and are fully lined inside and out with PVC for that Shimmy Shimmy effect.
