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!!

Some questions

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.

new things and markets

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.

New pants

This is a little sneak peak at the hippy pants. They are made from soft snuggly polar fleece with a felt and button detail. I have made 3 sizes 3,4 and5 and three colours pink, purple and red. I will show you the new jumpers soon I have an awful headache tonight so a nice cup of tea and hot bath and an early night I think.

And here is one of my creative spaces our dinning table, the other is a corner of my bedroom where the sewing machine etc are. But this proof I have started on more hot buddies they are ready to sew now did all the arms and legs the other night, thanks Mum.

Markets and life!

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!

Hi I'm still here!

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 :)

Great day at Glenbrook

Here is my stall at Glenbrook (nsw). This time I was in the centre of the market not on the grass and boy did it make a big difference. Had a great time sold lots, but I have month to get sewing before the next market. The weather was lovely although it was jolly hot by the middle of the day but I can't complain I had a great spot. I am so glad that the day went well it makes me think I am doing the right thing and I have some talent. I love designing and making things so thank you to everyone who came and bought something or showed an interest in my work.
Over the course of the next month I will be working on some new bags, hair clips, printed jumpers, and maybe some cute little bunting if there is time.
