Frightfully busy!

It's head down, bustle up around here....



I've been sewing....
But I can't talk about it.


I've been playing with Kanzashi...

(Edited to add: The Kanzashi book link is in my Amazon sidebar widget).


And I'm looking forward to having time to make myself the cap-sleeve version of this lovely blouse pattern I won on Little Munchkins' recent giveaway. Bundled into the parcel was this Patty Young (Andalucia range) ribbon. Candy sweet.



Things might be a little quiet around here for a while. Serious deadlines are looming large.

I'll get back to you on
the skirt when I'm completely happy with the design and/or worked out a way to photograph myself in it without tying myself in knots.

I am really looking forward to seeing the skirt - that fabric manipulation you are doing is magic!

Good luck with all the work ... may you find that 25th hour in the day (or is that night?) every now and then!

You need one of Jodie's special crafting clocks.

See, when YOU say 'frightfully busy' and then follow up with the secret squirrel bizzo, we all know there are SERIOUS things afoot!

(Don't forget the McYoga...)

After I read this blog post yesterday I dashed off and Googled Kanzashi! How rude, I didn't even leave a comment! The Secret Squirrel Bizzo has got me all intrigued too. You're such a tease!
