My creative space

To be honest the first half of my Thursday looks like this......

I'm getting over a bout of flu, which was at its worst on Saturday when my city was being rocked by a natural disaster, so I haven't allowed myself any time to be sick or feel sorry for myself.

After two days working in the shop there is a mountain of dishes and washing lurking in the business end of the house (which is why I'm spending today the first half of in PJs reading Extra Curricular and drinking coffee...obviously haha!)

I did get some hours on the sewing machine this week to progress my drill skirts.


I know they need to be pressed again but what do you think?  Huz things they look like 'pinnys', but I'm really rather happy with them, so much so I've snaffooed one for myself and one for my best friend.  The rest will make it on to the Felt shop at some point this week. 

There is plenty else on the to do list - a mad backlog of work for the factory, a custom Kotuku skirt I'm making Clare for a swap and a quicky bag to showcase some lovely fabrics from Stitch.  I was put on to this by Megan and she got the tutorial and free download here

  1. Oh yay, Extra Curricular! The mag that made me and Eleanor (and my pop and my sister's fiance - oh and my sister too of course) a little bit famous! Ha! And you know what, I had the EXACT same experience when I sent a letter to the Envelope Project - they charged me heaps and then destroyed the whole envelope with their gigantic label... I sent an envelope that was just as bulky to Tasmania for $1.50 from my local dairy, and I checked her blog and it totally made it there safely. There you go. I'm using the dairy from now on!

    Also, love the skirt!

  2. p.s. do you still make those reversible belts? I really want a belt like that, but unfortunately I am not a size 10. Try size 14... Do you have anything like that?

  5. Custom would be great! When you have time though... Just let me know, and maybe what fabric options/prices etc... Keen as!

  6. Loving the pockets on your skirt. And I don't blame you hanging out in your PJs and reading EC when you are sick AND you've just had your world rocked. I'd be the same!
