I got the huff last night.
I invited my sister over for tea last night as she came interstate for a wedding (not THE wedding - a much better one - our cousin's) and we don't see each other that often.
We got some takeaway for tea as I had had to work late and didn't have time to cook. After we ate, she then proceeded to plonk herself in front of my telly and watch some crap show.
So I went off to my sewing room and worked on this week's…Continue
Having always been stingy with pattern purchases in earlier time, I think I have turned over a new leaf and gone quite nuts for pattern purchasing.
I'm waiting on two ebay pattern purchases including one bulk purchase which is always a bit exciting because you don't know what will be in there - still, if you get them for a song, why worry.
I also did some browsing at Lincraft on Tuesday (love public holidays!) and got a couple of half-price patterns and now I…Continue

I have started on this week's challenge- kidding around - and the usual has happened. I have charged into the project without checking to see that I have all necessary items! You think I would have worked out by now that this is not a good thing.

I have found one that almost works except I am not convinced that it will be strong enough - more of a skirt or lighter item zip.
Are there any Pratchett Discworld fans out there?
I have just caught up on my Sewweekly after three days up in Sydney attending Nullas Anxietas III - the third Australian Discworld Convention.
What an absolute blast I had - the costumes, the plays, the like-minded people - one giant enjoyable nerd-fest. Having attended all three Australian Cons, I can't wait for the next one (even if it is two years off).

I've just had a lovely little four-day jaunt down to Hobart, Tasmania for a birthday present from My Man Andrew. Suffice to say I missed my laptop as there were over 340 emails waiting for me when I got back - 95% of which were 'sewweekly sewing circle'. It took me a while to plow through them all, and boy do I wish I could manage a lovely little jaunt over to the V & A meet-up. Sounds wonderful.
I was a little disappointed with Salamanca Market. Has anyone ever been? I…Continue

I have just been browsing the most fabulous website http://www.thefrock.com/front.html Eye popping to say the least.
Oh to have a decent reason for wearing an evening gown! They are few and far between for me :-)
