School Holidays

Yeah for me  ..........more time to sew!!!

This week has been so great with time to pull out the patterns I have wanted to make for so long.  Bonus ladies love them.

{Gypsy Shrugs}  as the weather cools down to keep bare shoulders covered, brighten a tee or skivvy for winter - versatile.  Check my store there may still be one there.  :)

{Twist Shift}  This dress has lots of fun features to make it fabulous for casual get togethers.  It has welt pockets for collecting teasures, a contrast panel of #Jennifer Paganelli fabrics, it is reversible which is a real plus if you have a little one who spills or who likes to change their outfit to suit their  mood!

- check my store - maybe one left.

Best wishes always.
Love to have you leave a comment or contact me about any items.

I love to get my hands on NEW patterns -  very pleased with this one 'Amor'   from Lauren at Fresh Patterns and Designs - my lovely customers are wild about Tanya Whelan fabrics - 'Sunshine Rose' so I always try to tweak the designs a bit to make then a little unique for each customer.  But sometimes........ they fall in love and just want the exact same dresses.   Thanks to Shirralee I hope this and the next one brings smiles to your faces.

Christmas is over

I am so pleased Christmas is over......lovely to see you all but I love to get back to normal.  Which for me is sewing.   A small break over Christmas from the sewing is enough for me,  we are on countdown with under 14 days until we can expect our first grandchild, which means I am rushing in some small zero size sewing, we don't know the sex which means I need to cater for both.   (double sewing I am up for).  With this I am planning to hold a ZERO Market later in the month - depending on a few variables will announce a date for that at a later stage.   For now I have some 'action' pics to share of Miss L in her Ruffle Playsuit - Tanya Whelan fabric Barefoot Roses - beautiful indeed.  {love the action pics}

Best wishes  - Denise
