Little Things

Kylie & I have been having a great time this week with our sewing. My "baby" has just started kindy, so we now have one day a week to devote to our sewing, and of course, cups of tea and talking! It has been so much fun, and it's also amazing how much we have got done.
I am now making a line of corduroy winter skirts for little girls. My daughter loves hers, and I have sold some to dear friends of ours, for their lovely little girls. I have made a few for Belli Bliss too, but they are very limited edition!
Kylie & I have had a ball making macarons out of felt! They are good enough to eat (well, almost), and the very simple pattern came from the Mollie Makes magazine, or you could look on their website. It is a small, portable project that anyone could do. Have a look on our Facebook page to see a picture (Just until Kylie puts it on here too!)
I have also started a friendship bracelet. Yes, just like the ones you probably made at school, and it's all coming back to me. It is fun and easy also. So maybe, if you don't have time for a big project, you could seek out a little thing to hand-make, and complete. The sense of achievement is out of all proportion to the amount of work you put in!
Keep warm

Hello there lovely readers!

Sorry for the long time between drinks - so to speak!
Jo and I have been away on our once a year sewing retreat with all the lovely gals from the FQ sewing posse! We had a lovely time walking, talking enjoying the peace and shopping for antiques in the beautiful riverside village of Mannum. 5 days and four nights without one kid mess to clean up or a single load of washing to be done - heaven!!

Our goodies have been selling quite well at Belli Bliss in Unley and we are now back to the machines to make some more.Of course, the little booties in the picture aren't the new stock, just wait until you see the yummy new colours!

Anyway off to see my lovely beautician for the last time for a few months(she is having bubs no.3) and then to Jo's to sew Yippee !!

Have a wonderful day :)
