Some Bits and Pieces

Finally how exciting, Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross has arrived!! So many lovely things to sew.

I had a quick trip the the Op Shop and found some fab fabrics to use.

I bought 3 metres of this vinrtage flowery goodness for $1, and i am going to make some PJs out of it so i stop having to steal my husbands undies to wear to bed (they are comfortale!).

I bought 2 metres of a stripey crepe fabric for $1 that i am going to try and make the sundress out of, I will probably shorten it to a top though. For some reason if I wear dress like that with out shapeing at the waist I end up looking like I am wearing a sack.

I also got some pink cordoury and some cute bunny fabric too. I might try and make the Flower Girl dress out of this, not sure yet.
I also purchase some beautiful batik style fabric as well, to create my art for the swap at 6 o'clock Stitch, which is a Spring time swap . I need to create something 8" x 10", that includes Yellow and Red. I am going to try and make a quilted sunrise scene with hills and water. Should be interesting!

Curly Pops your package is on the way!!
and Bella and I graduated from Puppy School!! Whoot!

Congratualtions, Katy and Bella!

Hope all that training paid off!

Have you sewn any bandanas for the puppy yet? Do dogs down-under wear bandanas around their necks? They're really cute; google it :)
