lovely weekend behaviour...

After feeling pretty crappy all week I have finally got my mojo back! On Saturday morning I packed the little one into the car, popped into town for a quick coffee pit-stop and  then headed off toward Busselton in search of garage sales.  We found some great stuff, including the stack of wire chairs and the lovely old timber chair painted white. We stopped past the local market on the way home to pick up a bunch of proteas, a bargain at $2/stem!!

This weekend I had that winning feeling. Early to rise. Pancakes for brekky. Finding cool stuff at garage sales. Afternoon napping...  Even a very spontaneous chair make-over that I love!I cannot wait to recover the others, but I have decided to hold off until I have invested in a sturdier staple gun...

Zavian is still sick. I dont think she will make it to daycare this week, so I am staying up late sewing trying to get my orders finished in good time....

I have a whole rack of nearly finished dresses, waiting impatiently for zips and trimmings and then to be sent off to their new homes. 

It has been a hard week. Both the small and I have been unwell. Flu symptoms and tummy upsets. It's hard to get anything done when you have a miserable little person who needs your attention. In the end I gave up trying to sew and just spent a lot of time cuddling her on the couch. I now expect these orders will ship on Monday.

My appetite has returned today so I think some lazy croissants with jam are on the menu.

Have a good weekend!!

We spent the majority of the weekend in our pj's in recovery mode after such a big Friday night. It wasn't that I drank too much champagne but rather I was exhausted after all of the preparation that lead up to the show. I am still on a bit of a high from it all.

Now I have my little sisters wedding to think of!! Only three weeks to go and I have some serious sewing to do if we want her bridesmaids dresses ready in time. It's all about lace and flowers around here right now. Spring has definitely arrived at the sugar shack...

I had the most amazing night!! My first runway show was heaps of fun. I was so nervous and excited. The models looked incredible, the venue was packed out and the night went off without a hitch. I didn't get to see the show, as I was preparing and dressing models back stage, but from what I heard it was awesome, the feedback was great! I want to say a huge thank you to my models who helped me out for the night, To Lauren Wood who invited me to be in the show, and who made our models look so damn fine. And also to all my friends who made it to the show to support me - thanks for a killer night.

I have been so busy!! My back is aching from being bent over the sewing machine in concentration. As well as finishing orders I have been preparing for a fashion show that will be taking place tomorrow night at the cape wine bar. It starts at 5.30 and tickets are $25. I will be showing off a few dresses in a walk-through parade along with a few other local businesses including  the amazing Amore & Sorvete . It should be an awesome way to start the weekend. Of course I will get some piccies for those who are unable to make it.

Wish me luck!!
