I have a lot of work that needs to be done. I have been trying to get 2 work shirts made for a friend so this is at the top of my list today.
Then this is what I have to do for the rest of the week:
1: Samples made of School skirt and Pants- Draft patterns and make up
2. Oct/Nov Craftymamas Swap
3. Bags for school with Embroidery ( I have to digitize school emblem)
4. Quilt Block for a very talented Craftymama.
These are the things I really need to get done. There is nothing like a personal challenge to get the blood pumping. Time to get of the computer so I can get started..
Wish me luck...:)

Time for me to share some wonderful little things with you.
Firstly, the other week I was able to purchase a very cute little hat from Gilly the very clever Craftymama who has her own craftymama business Koo-Toor Creations, the pattern she used was the Lazy Day hat and I have to say that all my boys have been loving this hat wishing that it fit them, but little Noah was the one that got lucky.
Along with buying this gorgeous hat I have been able to get in some sewing time also..
This last week has also been a week for trying new things.. I always see so many new patterns and I thing I love that and then I put off making it as I have never made anything like it before for example bags, I love bags and I have seen some very cute and very practical patterns out there but I think I can't make that. Well this week I decided I was going to have a go (I also had the added motivation of making a bag for my swap partner in the Craftymamas November Swap, I don't want to disappoint her). I purchased the ThatDarnKat Coming and Going Bag pattern from once again You Can Make This..( I can see a pattern beginning to take shape here, I need a pattern I go to You Can Make This..).
The bag is quite roomy considering it's size. The Floral fabric on the outside, I bought to make my mum a quilt but I never got around to it but I think it looks better as a bag. I will be making some more of these for Christmas pressies, if I don't run out of time.
I promise not to leave it so long next time before I blog again..:) I'll be back again real soon with some more creations both sewed and knitted.. Until then Happy Crafting :)

Well I have finally bitten the bullet and overcome my fears and put my Owl dress in my Madeit store.
Over the next couple of weeks I will also be adding some Sew Liberated Emmeline Aprons which are sewn under the Cottage License Agreement. These aprons are so pretty, they could be worn as a top over a t-shirt and pants or skirt. I will also be adding some My Place Handy bags, which I have been making for some time, these are such a handy (pun intended) bag for mums to have. I've used them for 2 of my boys and the kids love them.
Besides getting my store stocked, I must commit more time to my poor blog as it has been a bit neglected of late.

This is a cute little peasant top or dress. I'm looking forward to giving this one a go.
Here is another great little pattern just what is needed, now that winter is here. Have to make sure the sewing room is cleaned up now so I can get busy creating, very happy with my find.

The cute little pinafore that is featured on the cover and the dress with tie. This one I will make to be worn over pants or leggings. Better get the patterns drafted.
