Archives for the month of: October, 2009

For the last couple of months, you could have found me in my basement, among piles of fabric, frantically sewing for 3 upcoming craft shows and an open house. This past weekend was the first craft show, I was ready (almost, still threading elastic through some sleeves the morning of the show), I had my inventory, my price lists, my receipts books etc…..now all I needed was people…hardly anyone came! Good job I brought my knitting.

Guy returned from theatre last night in tears; he didn’t get the part he auditioned for. He has been part of a local youth theatre group for 2 years now, and both times he has had a fairly substantial role. This time however he “only has 3 lines, no singing, and loads of dancing” I have every faith in the director’s choice, and know that dancing is the thing he needs to work on most, if he wants to be a “triple threat” (no, I’m not a pushy parent, he just loves theatre arts) but it is so hard to sit back and watch him deal with rejection at such an early age. And he has the perfect hair colour to play the part he auditioned for too!

I wanted to post some pictures today of all the dresses I have been working on for my 3 upcoming craft shows, but I like to take them (the dresses and the photos) outside for best light. I should have done this yesterday, when we had glorious weather all day, but I had errands to run and it slipped my mind. Now it has rained all day, and my house is dark and gloomy. So, I hope the sun comes out over the weekend so I can post some next week.
In the meantime, heres another cushion that I made almost immediately after the Cloud 9 one, but didn’t upload at the time.

Over at Sew Mama Sew they are running a scrapbuster competition. I will be writing my entry for it next week, it uses up the tiniest of scraps!
