The thing is, I have been so busy doing Silly Goose stuff, that I really haven't had anything exciting to blog about, which does make me sad. I have tried explaining "fun" sewing vs "work" sewing to people and I am not sure if they get it. So while I have been pumping out the outfits and enjoying it very much, I haven't really been doing a whole lot of fun sewing.
But I was so pleased a couple of days back when a friend ask me to look after her wee girl. I make a whole bunch for Adele but having an afternoon of another wee girl to dress was pretty exciting, so I made her a skirt. So her mum had a sweet deal really, a babysitter and a dress maker! Not that I minded one little bit. So I had this piece of cord I brought ages ago off trademe, no idea about the origin. Lovely blue and floral. I put my gathering foot on my overlocker and sewed two pieces together, elastic waist...done! I think that the gathering foot didn't work so well on the cord, but it still gave it a bit of gather. Then I made a dress for Adele, but she hates it and wont wear it...EVER! So that might just have to go to a good home. It is nice, I like it, but it is not quite good enough to sell, I sort of made up the design as I went. So gutted about hers, but love the skirt. So I guess a good afternoon!
I collected the next lot of fabric for my quilt a long. Might try and cut it tomorrow. Seriously, where do the hours go in a day!
I brought a bunch more merino for Silly Goose. It is going o.k. I have a friends fundraiser thingee coming up soon where I can sell my things and a space has come available at this market that I have been wanting to go to, but now I am scared! I have to make a choice in the next few days, make a commitment and then get sewing OR be a wuss, say no and then spend the month kicking myself....
