I finished these 2 little cushions off today for a SoLer . . She wanted 2 little cushions to go onto a white cane chair. . they are about 10 inches square and I also made the cushion inserts so the covers are washable. . .

I finally finished off 2 things that have been sitting unfinished in the sewing container and thought I would share them . . They were my first 2 goes at something like this but they turned out pretty sweet!!
This has to be one of the cutest little sets for a little girl . . imagine a little miss in the yard wearing that over summer . . how absolutely devine . . I love the brown edging she has done .. truly an inspired creation!!
It would be perfect for Christy's little miss harlo!! She is such a pretty thing . . this would match devinely!!
I just finished off this gorgeous bright pink polka dot skirt for Matilda with some gorgeous jumbo white ric rac on the edging for that extra contrast!! The waist band is FOE . . I watched a tutorial this morning by Angry Chicken on FOE and its so perfect for skirts!! Its instant gathering!!

I finally managed to get some photos of Matilda wearing something I had made you. My skinny girl is also a very tall girl . . so although its meant to be a dress its better as a top . . nice and warm too with flannelette inside .. and who doesn't love a scotty dog print!!

I picked up the most gorgeous piece of retro fabric at the Op Shop yesterday . . its a linen type fabric and its the funkiest retro design and colours . .
My only issue now is deciding what in the world to make with it . . I considered a bag for me but I think it really isnt strong enough . . definitely something for Matilda.
So many choices!!

I made a few fleece backed blankets for the show . . some turned out so very well . . I am hoping to sell them
They are in this album here
My line of winter pinafores fully lined with lovely lush flannel failed to sell . . I was disappointed as I was very proud of them .. I sold one . . that was all . . I made sizes 000 to 4

Just a quick catch up about what has been happening of late.
My laptop is back in the shop . . to say I am unimpressed is a massive understatement. Its way beyond a joke for a 4 month old brand new machine.
The Expo was a HUGE flop. I sold 2 things. We had maybe 80 people come through where we were promised at least 500 . .
I now have a mass of stock I do need to move so I am working on a new online shop front to do just that.
I also need to start working on a budget .. being so up and down lately I have resorted to my old friend retail therapy and it just isnt a good thing!!
