Stitches and Craft Goodness


I sooo enjoyed the Stitches and Craft Show in Rosehill. Luckily for me it's only a 15min drive and I had my lovely sister to help me out. The other great thing about going on the second last show day was that there were marked down prices. There were 4 levels of craftiness and even though we got there after midday I was exhausted by the end of the day.

I met the really wonderful Fiona of Dearfii (whom I won my free ticket from) and I couldn't leave this lovely pincushion in her stall. I was drawn to it immediately and had to take it home.


Funnily enough, I bought some scrapbooking supplies. A friend of mine had given me a scrapbooking album when I was pregnant with my first and I just never got around to using it. Now that I have some supplies I am definately going to get creative.
It also helped that sis subscribed to a scrapbook magazine for just $36/yr with two back issues we got to take home that day. Awesome.


Ink and Spindle fat qtr and a dotty fat qtr.


This is the pack I got from Sprout. It was only $10, I wish I'd got another one with girly designs. I can't wait to applique them onto t-shirts for Little Man. He is really missing out of my craftiness.



I made this Lazy Days Skirt for Little Miss. It took one night but I still need to add ribbon to the hem. She looks really cute in it but her bum sticks out a bit making the back shorter. Shhhh, I won't tell her that or she'll get a complex. One more week til her 3rd birthday! Better get started on that dress.

Life is getting much more tiring these days. The kids want to sit on my belly or lap. I just can't tell where one starts and the other ends : ) Spring is definately in the air. I just want to drag my sewing machine out to the backyard and sew while the kids play in the cubby house. So many things I want to make: cradle canopy cover, baby quilt, baby mobile, bathroom curtain, tote bag, t-shirts, summer clothes for the kids.... ho hum.

Just patting my belly and enjoying time at home with just two littlies while I can.
We hope you're all well too.

  1. Aww, look at that cute little fabric with the jump roper! I hear you about crafting for boys. There's this little flickr group that occasionally has some cool stuff:

  3. Well it sounds like you are exhausted but enjoying the final months of your pregnancy. Love what you picked up at the craft show - I have seen that Little Boy fabric before but never thought of appliqueing it - great idea.

    Your lazy day skirt is very sweet too. Enjoy your sewing - I did a lot before my third was born thinking I would never be able to sew again! LOL
