Onwards and Upwards

A day makes such a difference in one's mood!  I went to my lovely little bookclub last night after feeling shirty all day and a few glasses of red, a block of Cadbury Rocky Road and waaaaay too much talking put me right back on track.

My mood continued to be lifted today when I recieved this lovely little parcel in the mail from Plushka's Craft that I won.

Then I found The Liberty Book of Home Sewing at the shops for $18!

And I managed to squeeze in some sewing!
This cute sneaker flannelette is from Spotlight and I have whipped up some pj pants for a little guys birthday this weekend.  I'm popping some plain spencer style tops with them and will probably put a little sneaker panel on the top too.
(not a great photo!!!)
I also found some cute bedlinen at Target the other day in just the right colours for his bedroom which I snapped up, so I'm totally gifting with a 'theme'! Atlhough I am reminded of this scene in Toy Story where some poor child arrives with bedsheets and the toys are horrified... "Who invited that kid?!"

Happy Wednesday!

  3. Chocolate, wine & friends - perfect combo. I saw that gorgeous flannel at spotlight too a d thought pj's straight away! So I sent mum along to grab some - thought them more likely to actually get done that way!
