Merry Christmas everyone hope you all had a wonderful day and are now relaxing on boxing day. We had a lovely day and the kids enjoyed their presents and I think are still running on sugar. I am now looking forward to the sales tomorrow and especially spotlight that starts at 10am, hoping to grab a few bargains. I will post some photos soon of my new dog with raindeer antlers on and, if they turn out, Sage as an angel at church she was very cute and so well behaved. Well it's time for a coffee so off I must go Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, God bless and all my love blogger buddies :)

I am glad to be home in one piece after the gale force winds up at Glenbrook today. We ended up leaving at lunch so it wasn't a very good day for sales and now I have to unpack everything and shake off the dirt. But anyway I will be at Hide & Seek next sunday and it doesn't matter about the weather as it's inside so come one and all.

Hope everyone has had a good July as we get closer to christmas (aaarrrrhhhh!!!). Next month is going to be busy as I will be at Richmond (nsw) markets at Richmond Primary school on the 14th then Glenbrook on the 21st and hopefully at a new market Hide and Seek on the 22nd so the next few weeks will be working working and some more working I must sit down and write myself a timetable so I get everything done. I haven't told the kids yet about all the markets they get to spend the day with daddy who feeds them junk and when I get home he goes to work and I get left we children bouncing off the walls. Really hope to see some friends there as I always need a toilet break!!

I was tagged by Alisa from Mon Alisa design to answer a few questions so here goes.
Which pattern/vintage style have you been thinking about lately?
A pattern I have been working on lately has been a drawstring back pac. I have a big box of old patterns some vintage but I never get around to making anything from it, I blame the housework!
What is one place that you really want to visit that you haven’t been to before?
I really want to go to Europe and America and everywhere in between.
What are your favourite / least favourite words? These can be connected to sewing or not!
Gorgeous is my favourite it's such a yummy word so many things can be gorgeous from a painting to a choc cream puff! Least favourite is housework.If you had to spend 3 consecutive days on the same train, who would you want with you and why?
Hmmm that's a hard one so many to choose from.
What’s your “desert island” book/movie and why could you read/watch it over and over?
My movie would have to be The Breakfast Club I have loved that movie for years and could watch it many times more. My book would have to be the complete works of Shakespeare.What garment/accessory do you wear the most?
Black it goes with anything and hides everything
What wouldn’t you be caught dead in?
Bikini, the kids have wrecked my body and I haven't fixed it yet!
Thanks for reading I would like to tag my friend Marika from Smerfdesigns.

This is my first attempt at a pencil roll they were for two birthdays over the weekend. They are made from up cycled cat in the hat material and a heavy duty cream colour material, the sharpener in glued to the roll (with silicone) so it can't get lost
I currently have these three Hot Buddies in stock if you want one just email me or contact me via popple on facebook.
Wow what a great day I had at Glenbrook yesterday. It felt like it went really fast but then the pack up went REALLY slow. But besides that it was lovely and sunny in the end and sold a variety of things I have even had to take 4 things off made it because they sold. The new jumpers and pants were received well and even sold a few, my mind is already thinking of new things to make but I must set myself a schedule this time and organise the rest of my life I seem to be permanently running late for everything.

Well I have been busy the last few weeks getting ready for the next Glenbrook market (15/5/2010) and will take some photos soon so you can see the new jumpers and pants, not quite finished yet and I am doing some more hot buddies too they are all cut out and waiting to be put together. If you do come up to the markets you will see my wonderful Mum there between 9and 12 as I have to come back down the mountain to take my oldest daughter to a birthday party, it was going to happen one day that I would have something on a market day but the funny thing is she also has one on the sunday too she's a busy girl. Well I better go and do SOME house work I would rather sew but such is life!

Hello everybody I am still alive just been trying to get things sewn and ready for next Glenbrook market next month. I am working on some more bags as stock went down very low also making some beanies as I have no more size large left and people have been asking for an x-large, these are made from snuggle polar fleece plus I am trying to get some polar fleece pants made too. As usual I want to make a million things but in reality I don't have the time like now I should be in bed asleep as it's 12.30 already so it will be 1am by the time I have a shower and get ready, no wonder it takes me an hour and half to wake up in the morning. I really need to organise myself better and have a plan then I would get stuff done, my house looks like a craft store exploded. Off to bed now good night :)
