Well I did get those chocolate biscuits in the end! I was going to eat them anyway!! Many of the Aprons have already found new homes and the one for my sister should hopefully arrive on her doorstop today. This pic is of the few left. I will be busy making some more for the Upmarket next week.
And here are the finished Bauble Garlands. Several of these have already been ordered and will soon on their way to new homes.
I have enjoyed sitting down and sewing these. Well I must get back to the sewing room.

See all this cut out fabric - well they are Aprons in waiting. All cut, ironing and sewing to go. Today I shall not blog hop, I shall not net surf, I shall not eat a chocolate biscuit until these are finished!!!!. My sister was here in Perth recently and she has dibs on the top Apron with the black and white floral print on it. So hopefully by the end of the day I should have these complete and then I can eat the chocolate biscuits calling my name from the pantry.
This Make "Me" Boy Cushion was a custom order for a friends little boy's birthday. Here it is sitting on his bed - He is soccer mad so with a few extra touches to my pattern this is the end result. These patterns will be available at the Perth Upmarket and come in two versions - Make "Me" Boy and Make "Me" Girl. They have different clothes and hairstyles that you mix and match to suit your child. I have also had so much fun making them that I have decided that I will take custom orders for them if sewing the cushions yourself is not your thing.

My poor sewing machine has been getting a workout! I know that she can't wait to be put to sleep at night these days. Since my launch it has been non-stop here at Tied with a Ribbon central. Many of the orders are now on the way to their new owners and one such order was for this special custom made brooch.
This brooch will be headed to a Kindy Classroom. There are always lots of parents and helpers who give up their time to help out in schools. So this brooch is in special recognition of the "Parent Helper" of the day. I thought it was such a wonderful gesture of the mum who ordered it.
All those fabric and felt hearts have now been turned into Needlebooks which I will be taking with me to Perth Upmarket. This will be my first market so keep Sunday the 27th June free if you are in Perth.
I am working on getting an online shop up and running. This is a work in progress and which I hope soon to have launched. If you want to contact me in the meantime you can leave a comment or drop me an e-mail and I can reply.
Here is a sneak peak at one of my new designs which I am working on. Well next on the cutting table are Notebook Keepers. I will post a picture once they are complete.
