I`m back take two

I `m finally back to blogging again, only the camera isn`t, one more week till it will be all sorted ,then there will be a new giveaway YAY.
These photo`s are of my going away party way back in Febuary i found them just before and thought i`d show you the great cupcakes mum had made ,very Aussie i also got the teddy bear in the Aussie cricket uniform and a small Collingwood footy ball LOL Brendan is a huge sports freak.

I moved it like Mike today on the bike around Brunswick then up to GJ fabrics for a quick look , think i will have to go back when i get paid from the new job that i start tomorrow.

I`ll be selling shoes 4 days a week from now on and sewing for the Olive Grove the rest of the time. I dropped down some new baby singlets appliqued with Babushka dolls, and calico bags which i also appliqued today, i think i will have these as a standard from now on.Embroidered tea towels are also on the list.
I`ll post some photo`s when the camera is al sorted.

I`m back

I`m finally healthy again from the dreaded throat infection, and today i started my new part time job in a shoe shop. I`ve got the next week off as mum is arriving for a week on Thursday so i`ll be taking her site seeing, to all the crafty places and markets i can think of, any ideas please let me know. I`ve come up with a few so far , i`ll post about them later.

It`s great that i`ll be working 3 days a week to start with then possibly full time as it will give me lots of time to sew for the Olive Grove and i have lots of new ideas. I have some odd sizes left in my skirts so i`ll be putting them on sale for $50 as of tomorrow .
I`ll be able to get my camera fixed this week then i can take some photo`s of the great things i got at the Sonny and Coco market in the weekend and my new boots, theres got to be something good about working in retail!!
