** Did you know that pigs can actually fly?...
** That is my cutie at toddler jam this morning. Last session of the term and we had a very fun morning!
** In breaking news I have finally made a decision as to what my lovely Sew Aussie ladies will be making me in October. So far I have cut up most of the fabric...
** To be made into these:
** Just the solids to cut then they can all be packaged up to send...
** These are completely not my "go to" colours, but despite that I am absolutely in LOVE with this block! It just shows that I am a fickle creature!
** It matches in perfectly with my lounge room (of which I did not choose the colours but have to live with), is not too feminine for the Mr's taste, and it has some great fabrics in many of which were sent to me by some very special people! Hands up if you sent me fabric for this block - because I bet some of you will recognise it ;)
** So thank you to Megan, Leona, Susan, Jamie-Lee and Kelly for your contributions!.
** They are very quick to put together and are not as hard as they look. I used this tutorial.
** Wow yesterday's discussion on labeling was very eye opening! I had no idea that people felt so strongly about the matter. Most of my label placements of smaller products up until now have admittedly been total laziness on my part while I've been learning to sew new things (because I don't usually think of the label until after I'm finished making something new to me as a general rule) - so at least the discussion has taught me to consider it at the beginning from now on on smaller products and not add them as an after thought...
** I won't be making an changes with my t-shirts though for certain. The rest will be thought upon some more...
** Thanks for your input! If you haven't had your say go have a look-see...
** Ok Mr random org just got to choose the giveaway winner for my recent giveaway. Here is the winning number:
Susan was lucky number 5 and said:
"Well done on the t-shirts. Now everyone will be recommending you! I'll
hop over to Flickr and put my name down on the new group too. Thanks for
the giveaway. I need something to keep me calm some days!"
** Seriously that is the 3rd giveaway of mine that Susan has one but I promise you everybody that I didn't rig it!! - Susan I think you need to start playing lotto! I'm picking that I needn't bother emailing you and that you will be in touch with me as soon as you read this!
** Wow I can't believe that my swap has all filled up. I decided to cap numbers at 50 because I don't think I could manage a bigger swap than that at the moment. So if you opted in and filled out the form then keep an eye out for the partner assignment emails in the next couple of days, I'm off to work on that a bit now.
** I finished Abbie's skirt and outfit to match Hannah's from the other day. Although I must admit that I ran out of time and it's still waiting for the arm ruffles. It looks so cute on her:
** I will try and work on the tutorial this week once I've got partner assignments out for the swap.
** I discovered Etsy again this week when one of my packages I ordered aaaaages ago has not arrived and I had to go in search of replacement items.
** Oh dear, is all I can say! I might have some more exiting mail to show you soon...
** The 3 Flutter girls are all feeling very happy this week because the man of our house is home!
So lots of family time on the cards for us this week! YAY!
And that's all the random tidbits from me for this Tuesday.
Linking up with Fabric Tuesday.
