The Week that Was.

There were 2 highlights from this (almost) past week, the first one was the Craft Night held at work on Wednesday night. We had over 100+ ladies come for a ‘one night only’ evening of bargain fabric shopping – all the craft fabrics were $6 per metre & we had fat 1/4’s for $2, plus lots more bargains. I made 2 more bag samples for the evening, they are from the New Look pattern 6467. My boss chose the colours & fabrics for the bags, the red one is in Fremantle Dockers colours (Australian Rules Football) – red, white, purple & green (My DH thoroughly approves).

I also managed to add to my own personal stash, it will take a few photos to showcase all my purchases! Here is the first selection – black, white & yellows.

The fabrics are from Timeless Treasures and Michael Miller, I particularly love the yellow birds in the trees.

The other highlight was last night, both my precious cherubs performed in the Southern Cross Dance School concert – James in Junior Hip Hop & Rachel in Ballet. All the practice, hard work & dress rehearsals really paid off. Well done your guys, I am very proud of you :)

Don't those two cherubs look gorgeous - sounds like a great night of entertainment. The yellow birds in the tree look cute too - can't wait to see what you do with the black white and yellow!

Love the bags, and love the black & yellow fabric. I'm on a blue & yellow kick at the moment, but a, trying not to give in and actually buy any blue and yellow because I think it will pass. :)

The bags are great - I love the one with the tie. I made a similar bag for myself, but mine's taller and it didn't occur to me to make belt loops - brilliant! You just don't know how much you inspired me when I won your bag giveaway! :)

Well done to your cherubs. I bet you were beaming from ear to ear watching their performance.

The kids look great. James actually 'broke out' his moves for me on Sunday morning. A priceless moment for me!
