quicky before work

I've just got an etsy message from the lovely HinaStar who has created a treasury and included one of my 'i love my nan' brooches. Woop. If you fancy a gander which i demand you to do hehe here's the link. Right i need to quickly stitch up a hole in my work trousers as i've had no time to go shopping :( Hopefully my dieting will work and i can fit in my old clothes. lol. ta ta

Awwww this pic makes me happy. I miss SGP! Roll on next year.

lazy day of sod all

Had a day off work, which was nice as getting a bit run down. Think it's a mixture of new medication and work. So had a lovely lay in this morning. In fact i've done jack shit all day. I'm even still in my pjs. Actually that's quite bad isn't it. Oh well. Get to have another little lay in tomorrow too which is a lovely thought.

I sent off a diana mini case. She was wrapped up in a cute little cup cake box so cross fingers she arrives in tip top condition. I'd love to see her being used so hopefully i can get a photo of her being worn. If so i will post it.

Nearly half way through the first diana case i've made. I made a pattern last week and obviously started making the case. Then on monday i realised i'd miss placed part of the pattern. How annoying. I spent hours measuring and making a pattern, perfect right down to the mm then managed to lose it without even knowing i had. So thinking on my feet and not really wanting to re-make that section (lazy remember), i guessed from my draft felt case. I'm pretty sure it will be successful. The pattern must be somewhere. It will turn up one day. Sooner rather than lately i hope. The diana case is a floral mix of blues and pale green. I've embroidered a simple checker'ish effect in navy, grey and lime. It has been padded slighty for extra protection. Better get on with the second part. 

*Also - if you spent $25 or more on my etsy store you will get a free 'i love my nan' brooch :)*

plop alop

Again i have been hopeless at regular natters. I've not been overly busy so there's no excuse, sorry.

I've had a little break from my camera case making. Was getting a bit boggle-eyed but i'm back on it now. I've made a pattern for my diana + camera so have started a case for that. I've also sold my 1st diana mini case, but i'm not getting too excited until it's paid for. I go excited before when i sold one, but then the buyer disappeared. So will this one be successful?? Who knows. Would be nice if it was.

Secret Garden Party was immense. Wish it hadn't ended. Roll on next year.

I took way too many photos, like over a thousand so i've only added these few. I went crazy with my diana mini and my supersampler. They worked perfectly. Shame i couldn't take my holga but i didn't fancy the idea of trying to rewind the film by hand in a tent. Maybe i'll attempt it next year. 

Off to sew :)
