A Sofilantjes Summer - Down Under Blog Tour

It's Spring here in Sydney, and today is an exciting day for a couple of reasons. The first is that my boys are back at school today after end of term holidays (yay - I may actually get some sewing done this week), and the second is that today I am the second blog stop on the Sofilantjes Down Under Blog Tour.

All Things Fairy

Last month I was pretty excited to receive some gorgeous spandex fabric samples in the mail to sew up and photograph from Kristie Boo! designs.

The Sunkissed Kaftan by Pattern Emporium

Hello everyone, I am the last stop on the Pattern Emporium Blog tour today. I've been a big supporter of Pattern Emporium for a number of years now and really rate the patterns highly. Over that time the pattern designer Kate has become one of my sewing BFFs and it's been so exciting to see what a fantastic job the real bloggers (and I say real because I really am only an occasional blogger....something I'd love to fix but at the moment, life is just too hectic) have done on this blog tour.

Say Cheese!

Last Friday morning I was contemplating what to do with the 15 minutes between feeding the baby and the time my alarm would go off. I'd normally jump back into bed but I wasn't sleepy at all. I considered the possibilities- tackling my huge pile of ironing, getting all the lunches made, preparing a nice breakfast for the kidlets, and then I remembered, it was One Thimble Day!
