which is pretty much the way my mind is functioning at the moment, it's a bit all over the place, suffering from taxation time strain I suspect. Every year I promise myself I'll do the tax early, but of course I get complacent and think, "ahh, there's plenty of time," and end up doing it in the last week of October. This year takes the cake though.... I finished it at 8pm October 31st. Only four hours to spare.
Next year I will do it early...... I promise!!!!
the good thing is that the return will arrive at a time when we really need it, Christmas!
I've been doing a bit of sewing for Lily lately, which has excited her no end, as she desperately wanted a dancing dress and skirt. I was able to convince her that this skirt was a great dancing skirt, made with some lovely Amy Butler Belle and cotton spot fabric. It is very gorgeous on her but she managed to spill a tub of yoghurt all over herself before I could get a photo of her in it.carousel dress. I wasn't overly happy with the fit of it, so I changed the straps so they go straight over the shoulders and shaped the bodice a little more at the sides to make it narrower. Perfect fit now and apparently classifies as a dancing dress. Big brownie points for Mummy!! No photo but shall add a modelling shot soon :D
And here's a little work in progress, a little denim wrap around skirt. I'm really happy with this litte design as it is slim fitting but being a wrap around gives plenty of room for playing, I am quite stoked with myself. You can expect to see these coming to the store in the future. I've decided to hand stitch a water lily on the bottom corner for something different, just have to find/draw the right one.
Also need to wash these Cosmo fabrics that finally lured me into Spotlight, the bottom one was reduced to $5 a metre!!!! That is just insane!!! I think I might be back for some more of the top two as I think I might make myself something from them.
And other far less colourful fabric shopping, the supplies for two little flowergirl dresses in satin and tulle.
And this is Andy's new blue water diving suit. The fabric design is pretty cool. In the background you can see one if his other suits ~ for diving crap Victorian waters (which apparently is called a temperate water suit). How amazing is the camouflage!!
