Yesterday I had my first market stall at our local markets. I realized on my way home that I had forgotten to take a photo - oops. It was a great day with the sun peeping out from behind the clouds on the odd occasion. I did really well for my first stall & had a lot of interest in my shop which I am really excited about. Today I am planning to relax & hopefully do some sewing for myself. Thank you to everyone who came and visited my stall - your support was wonderful.

I ordered this bag pattern for the store & was instantly in love & had to make it. I was amazed at how super easy and quick it was to make. The pattern uses a number of different fabrics but when it comes to bags I am a one colour girl & of course I had to make it in red. If I make it again I will most definitely use a heavier weight Pellon but I am still really happy with how it turned out.

As it is the school holidays here in Australia (and the beginning of the new financial year) I have decided to have a Pattern Sale in my store.
So for the next two weeks (until Sunday 15th July) all patterns in my store will be 20% off. So if you are after a new project for the holidays to keep you sane, or just because, hop on over and check it out.
Yesterday I had huge plans in the sewing room. I got off to a great start making some of these for an upcoming market. Then the unthinkable happened ...... I sliced a huge chunk out of the side of my finger with the rotary cutter - OUCH .... as you can imagine there was a lot of blood (none got on my fabric thankfully) .... so for the rest of the night I was on the lounge nursing a very very sore finger (yes I am a sook) and I couldn't possible have cooked dinner, or cleaned up lol.
It did give me a good opportunity to do some blog surfing and to really check out my new favourite blog Cluck Cluck Sew. I so love this blog and all Alison's gorgeous patterns (some of which I have in my store. I was particularly inspird by this red quilt that she made a while back.
I have this huge stash of red and white fabrics and have been waiting until I found something inspiring to make with them so I have decided to make this quilt (someday!) with this load of red and white loveliness.
Hopefully I will find some time during the holidays to make a start.
