I want my camera back!

I hate having to do this post with poor quality pictures but as my camera is still in being fixed I had to use my sons ipod :(
I have been doing so much sewing lately and wanted to let you in on some of it :)

These beauties were made using the Addison pattern by Modkid.

The green one is a size 3

The purple is a size 6

The pattern was so easy to follow, will definitely buy more patterns from them :)
I just bought my fabric from spotlight, but I think its a great little party dress.
Bianca has put an order in for one but she picked fabric from Patty Young so I thought I would make a few cheaper ones first!

For the last year I have been using a little draw string bag as my purse

This one is just a little more civilized lol

I even made a little pocket for my credit cards and such.
Well that is all I'm revealing for now

As a side note I'll just mention that I had surgery on my wrist on Tuesday and made most of these things yesterday and today, hehe so much for rest and re-cooperate.

Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!!!

Betcha he reads, betcha she sews

School holidays here, the kids are getting into the musicals.
Annie, Marry Popins and High School Musical
Got all the songs stuck in my head :)
Very busy had lots of visitors!
Have done some sewing (lots actually)
I made bonnets and aprons for some kids at church to wear to trek.
All up I made 8 bonnets, 7 aprons and 5 skirts
No photos. Camera is in being fixed.
I did manage to take some photos of my latest baby quilt though

I'm really happy with this quilt :)

I didn't buy any fabric to make it!
I have made it for a friend, when I asked her what she would like she said "blue"
I said "anything else"
"Blue would be good" she replied

So I looked around the internet and saw some quilts similar 
and then raided my blue scrap draw.
I thought I would have to buy the white but I found 1 metre and that was just enough.
I also happened to have some bamboo batting so no purchases to make this one YAY!

Now I just have to hope she likes it.

I have had some really awesome sewing things happen lately 
(well awesome for me lol)
but you will have to wait until I get my camera back to show you :)
