This is..a work in progress

How to sort out my display, what patterns and products to take with me (not to mention the finer points of transporting a whole lot of gear and a toddler across Sydney)....? It's all a bit of a work in progress at the moment - I've STARTED lots of aspects of the preparation, but haven't a clear end in sight - and only 12 days to go.... YIKES!

Oh, and there's those purse kits Lara, Bianca and I have been talking about .....hmmm... I think I'd better get my skates on if I'm to take those with me.

Fi was in a bit of a sewing frenzy a few weeks ago, and I was as cool as the proverbial cucumber. Not so cool now.... How are YOU doing, Fi?

For those who missed the news, there's a bunch of us (crafty types) who will be at the Stitches and Craft Show with the wonderful Living Creatively. Living Creatively will be on the third floor -THE WHOLE THIRD FLOOR!! If the Living Creatively spaces in Melbourne and Brisbane were anything to go by, the Sydney show will be a feast for the eyes and a buzz for the creative spirit! Angela and her team have STYLE with a capital S.

I'll be there from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon, and I'd LOVE it if you'd make yourself known to me - love to put a face to a name (I'm actually kind of freakishly good at remembering both, so don't be shy!!). I'm thrilled to hear that a few of my favourite regular customers are already planning to come along to see me.... it warms the cockles, you know?

I'd like to have at least half a clue about what to bring to the show(!!?), so Sydneysiders - YOUR FEEDBACK IS VERY WELCOME HERE!!!! We can SELL on the stands this time around, and can also have a sewing machine to demonstrate techniques, but I won't have much luggage space for lots of bag hardware, so I can't bring it all!!!

This Is is hosted by the lovely Angela. This week's theme is by Debbie. (And I'm sorry my post ended up sounding more like an advertisement... I'm a bit obsessed with this latest project. Talk about ANYTHING and I'll turn it into a Stitches and Craft conversation...!).

Hi Nikki! I've just moved to Bondi and I can't wait for this. I just started sewing again this year, and it'll be my first craft show.

I've never made a any, but I'm quite keen to check out your retro style purse frames and kits. I like square and round.

I'm partial to matte finish or dull metal looking clasps, parts and bits.

That is hilarious, I have noticed your posts are sounding more hectic by the day. I can totally relate to the not enough time in the day predicament. Good luck in Sydney

Hi Nikki!! Can't wait to see you in Sydney - yes, Louise and I are now going. WE will be there Thursday and Friday and maybe some of Saturday. I suppose I will have to start thinking about what to take up!.

We can all be in a frenzy together!

Sounds like this is going to be a great exhibition and well worth all that work... wish I could make the trip and say hi.
Have fun!
