Some opping and some sewing



I've mentioned before that my work is around the corner from 4 op shops. I had a chance yesterday to pop into a couple in my lunch break. First stop was Vinnies, which was abuzz with people, but had no fabric. Inspired by this post, by the ever creative Kathleen of Grosgrain, I am desperate to do a wardrobe refashion... but I couldn't find anything with potential.

So off to Lifeline I went, and for $10, I got all of this! Hooray! There is about a metre and a half of each of these. I love the dog knit and am cooking up a plan for it. I lurve the purple floral almost too much to do anything with. 



We are off to a picnic party for lunch for 3 young ladies turning 25 (now that's efficient partying, no?). I made these 3 artsy clutches from Bend the Rules sewing. I have now made 5 of them for gifts, and I still want one. I made so many mistakes on these uber easy-to-make items. Lots of chuckling to myself and shaking my head at my own stupidity. I guess that's a risk factor in Friday night sewing.

Oh and thank you to everyone who has entered my giveaway. I was so nervous about that post. I though how sad it would be if no-one wanted the prize... so thanks for your encouragement and enthusiasm! I will do a draw tomorrow afternoon. So there is still time to enter!

hey Bek! Thank you for your lovely words of encouragement! I truly feel so much more ... well balanced! Now - red socks - these ones are Bonds ... but they are not meant to be long ones - I just pull them up ... struggle finding long socks too ... but I just love them
