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!
