What’s that in my mail box?

Hi all,

My darling baby (aka sewing machine) is still at the doctors, but there has been some good come from all this, the manufacturer has come to the party and is supplying the parts needed so that my machine can be fixed! So, hopefully it won’t be too much longer before I have her back again!

In the meantime, my mum has generously lent me one of her machines, she could see I was having major withdrawals! So I have been able to get a couple of things done….

A while ago my MIL bought TP some 3 piece winter pyjamas that were on special. Since he really needed summer pj’s I decided to make 1 set into 2 sets! So I made very easy cotton shorts to go with the t-shirts. I put a button on the front waistband so that he knows which way is front.

I have also had some great things turn up in the mail box lately….

I won this tea towel over at Yardage Design,  Nic does great designs go and check out her newest tea towel!

I also came across a sweet package of fabric, Melly and Me’s new gorgeous range “Where the wind blows” and a couple of the cutest patterns by Ric-rac! Jodie also spins a great story, her latest is about a chap named Baxter!

Be happy,

Love those tea towels, thanks for the tip Jess. And she is a local girl too! Those PJs look colourful and happy, just perfect for the boys.

When I saw the title of this post I thought you got my parcel! Has it not arrived yet? It's more than a week since I've sent it. Maybe the postman couldn't carry everything and it'll come tomorrow ;). Glad your "baby" is being fixed. And I love your new fabrics. Cheers Vreni

Glad that the manufacture is doing something about your sewing machine. Yes withdrawal is a terrible thing! Been there and don't like it!

Great idea with the Pjs and lovely fabrics as well. Your mum is very kind to lend you her machine, you will have to think of a lovly thankyou for her when you return it.
