My trip South was not how I imagined!
Firstly, the eight op shops I purposely stopped at along the way did not come up with the goods I was hoping for!
(It pays NOT to expect too much - obviously)
Secondly, I did not come home towing the vintage caravan of my dreams
(the main purpose of the trip)
I did however, come home richer for it and when I arrived home
was waiting for me
with a dream caravan doning the front cover
(how this lady managed to put "my" vision into reality is beyond me *wink*)
so I am back to square one - and thats ok.
anyway, good things come to those who wait - right?
I will show and tell the few wee things I did score soon (I promise)
meantime in the one denim bird studio
I have been
cutting out interesting dress patterns ...
finding a few op-shopped treasures from last week ...
sewing the finishing touches of this fab dress ...
here is a bit more detail - the print is gorgeous ha???
sewing my "one denim bird" applique onto A Line skirts for the spring markets ...
and more ...
sewing colourful A Line skirts ...
cutting out and sewing more dress pattern's with pretty fabrics
(again for the spring markets)
I have 3 fantastic dresses on the go at the moment for a very special lady.
I have little brother and sister-in-law and kids coming for a holiday from NZ in a week.
My house is an absolute shambles (but whats new???)
This weekend is the first in many I am staying at home with NO plans
and I am about to jump in the car and race off to check out another op shop or two.
So I must fly my sweets - there are treasures out there waiting to be found.
hugs all round
