Finally some sewing.....

After such a long time with the move & unpacking etc I finally managed to get some time & motivation to sew. It was pretty basic stuff, but hey its a start - I really feel like my sewjo is coming back!
First are just some pants for a friends twin daughters - they are made from recycled vintage sheet fabric & curtain fabric

The skirt is made from chenille & is a mama sized one - I tried it on & it is really comfy, but I am in 2 minds whether to keep it or list it on my etsy store when I finally re-open

Then a made a couple of pairs of shorts from once again my vintage/recycled curtain fabric. I find it hard to get great fabric for boys & have been lucky to find some fantastic vintage curtains..

Some of my stash....

I had so much fabric prior to my move & Mr Spunky was rather strict as to how much I brought home, but thankfully I managed to still bring quite a little bit back with me - a HUGE thank you to all the gorgeous girls over at CRAFTY MAMAS to for their help - I am eternally grateful!

Here is just some of it & this is as neat as it probably ever will be.

Back to Blogland & back home!!

It has been soo long since I blogged & so much has happened since then. Although we have lived in gorgeous Tassie for the past 2 years, we have finally packed up & are back home in QLD. Oh I am loving the HOT weather & humidity - I know I must be mad, but it really makes me feel alive!!
I think I will however miss the amazing opshops in Tassie - they are by far the best I have ever come across!!
