A little more Gossamer Dreams

I very pleased to be a guest WAHM at this month's Gossamer Dreams stocking. I must not have offended anyone last month which is great news!

This month's theme has been announced and it is Zen. It has been really interesting to see a few sneak peaks pop up on the GD blog and see all the different interpretations of this. Japanese fabric, japanese inspired fabric - all the different ideas should mean there is something for everyone!

I have a quick sneak peak of my contribution to share. Not the best photos as it has been dull and overcast here - though I am pretty sure that if you have read my blog in the past you will know I always find an excuse for my poor photos...

Anyhow - now that my excuses have been made here is a quick pic. This one is a gorgeous set for a lucky Mama.

Previews will be up on the Gossamer Dreams site in the morning of the 15th with all the items going live in the evening. Check the GD site for details as I am sure I will stuff up the time zone conversion ( my past life as a navigator has not helped me with this important life skill!)

I have also been working on a few custom bags - some gorgeous Laura Gunn themed pleated sling bags (my new pattern) and something for the boys... ( oh how hard it is to think boy!)

The 20% off sale on instock bags ends tonight and there are only a few bags left - snap up a bargain or email me on to get your own custom bag!

Its been a while...

Its been a while since I last posted but I think everyone will understand :)

It seems 2011 has kicked off with quite a bang - so much is going on not only in my little household but around Australia. The devasation faced by so many has left me a little lost for words.

I was very pleased to do my own small bit by donating a bag to the Possum Pouches auctions as well as the proceeds of the sale of my bags as the Gossamer Dreams stocking in January. I doubled my money by donating the $95 through Woolworths as well which was great.

Here is a very dodgy picture of my receipt - did you know that documents are harder to photograph than bags? I would make a lousy spy wouldn't I?

Another reason I have been a little quiet is that I have had quite a few custom orders to get done! I am really pleased that word is getting around about my bags and the service that I can offer. I completed a gorgeous bag for a very lovely customer just the other day - its on it way to her now so I can't show you the full bag but I can give you a sneek peak of the inner with my sexy new labels! Just in time for me to use on the new bags I am getting prepared to re-stock the Facebook store!

What else is keeping me occupied? Hmm - My eldest starts school in a few weeks, my youngest is getting her first tooth, standing and cruising the furniture and has started at Childcare and my terror of a middle daughter has started preschool and decided she must learn how to read 'right now'... and of course I go back to work as well... no rest for the very very wicked I always say!

New Year - New Patterns!

I hope everyone has had a great start to 2011 - floods and miserable weather not withstanding. I hope everyone affected by the floods starts to see some sunshine and a better outlook very soon.

I am have been very busy over the silly season testing out some new patterns and sewing up a storm.

Lots of skirts and tops and things for the girls but of course a few more bags to add to the store as well as some more custom work.

Here is a picture of my latest bag - this one is my favorite - fiery red cord and orange and red quilters cotton makes for a very striking bag! This latest pattern has lots of options and makes for a very versatile bag.

The bag below is another pattern that I use from time to time - this was a custom bag for a very lovely customer

And another pattern that was purchased by a wonderful friend.

I have added a few more bags to the store and the discount is still in place. Please send me a message if there is something you would like or something else you would like to see and I'll do my best to make it happen - I am always happy to take on customs!
