Still no fabric :( Thank you all though for your encouraging comments. One of the sellers has offered to resend the fabric, but I am not sure if that is right as it's not her fault it went missing in the post. What would you do?

I was going to take a lot of photos at the Bondi Markets last week but of course I forgot to bring my camera. I took one photo on my mobile phone so that you can see my new market canopy. I was super excited to finally have one - I'm in the big leagues now! It also came in handy when it started raining and when I had to pack up early because there were no people left at the market to buy anything, lol. It was nice to pack up my stuff under cover.

I am not going to be at Bondi Markets this Sunday as I am trying to get ready for Mathilda's Market. So much to do and everything always takes longer than I anticipate. Anyone know where I can get my hands on a cheap cloning machine?

I am starting to get worried.

For the last week or so I was going to show my new fabrics that I have bought but it has not turned up yet. I bought it from USA on 29 May and I am starting to think it is not going to turn up. Should I be worried at this stage? I have bought tons of fabric from the States and the most it has ever been is 2 weeks and now I am a couple of days over that.

I am keeping my fingers x and trying to be the 'glass half full' kind of girl! Feel free to tell me that I have nothing to worry about :)

I am in the middle of pinning. I don't like pinning much and I am trying to get away from it. (staring at keyboard thinking of what else to write, coming up with nothing) Ok, back to pinning...

Public Service Announcement!

Shock horror! I’ve just found out that Pad Thai contains more fat than a pizza!,27574,25630150-36398,00.html

Here I was thinking I was being health conscious by ordering my fave Thai dish when I could have been chowing down on some Pizza Hut goodness instead. All this time I thought that Thai people were generally so small and thin due to all the healthy Thai food they ate. Obviously they prefer pizza…

Another not so frequent update

So i wasn't kidding when i said that i don't post that often but bear with me as i will get better. I'll do a little recap of the last few days. On Friday i was super excited as i bought something that i really should have bought about 6 months ago. A roller cutter + mat and ruler! It is going to make things sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much easier. Check out the beauty below :)

So did heaps of cutting for no reason! Last Saturday was all about making dresses and this Saturday was all about appliques.

On Sunday I was back at Bondi Markets and I am not sure if it was because of the weather or the long weekend (or a combination) but it was a very successful day! If any of you bought something from me, thank you and I hope you love it!

Today, great day with bbq and friends. Did you have a nice long weekend?

Today one of my work mates gave me four of her old skirts that she no longer uses. Love the fabrics and I am now setting out to make something funky for girls with them. I'll show you when i have made something.

I will warn you though, please don't hold your breath as i am making stuff for Mathilda's Market in July. It's only 4 weeks to go and i am already stressing out - so much to do and so little time!

More than once have i wished that i could just wave a wand and all my ideas will miraculously appear as finished products. Not happend yet...

Ok, i am off to do some cutting but i may be back later tonight :)
