Also order a couple of attachments for my coverpro (from Sharp Sewing on ebay) around the same time. Same thing within 2 weeks, they were in my hot little hands.
Can't beat this service from both companies, WOO!HOO!

For the past week I've watched the value of the $A climb upwards against the $US. I've put items in shopping carts allover the US internet sites, hoping I would be able to withstand the onslaught of the exchange rates. Last night, when the $A hit $0.98 against the $US I helped boost the US economy ;-)

These are my entries. A couple of dog beds, plus coats for Mollie, Sanka and Alby. The hardest part of the task was getting the photos for the review!!
The pattern for the coats came from this book by Wendy Bealing.
All the patterns in the book are in graph form and it's simply a case of enlarging the graph.
The dog beds were just merely an oversize pillowslip. No pattern, no measurements just the size of the furnishing remnant.
A real bonus here as all the materials from these projects came from the stash - fabric, fur insert, binding, buttons, the lot! Can't beat that.

And what better design for a little Aussie living OS?
Next a towel and washer set for a sweet little girl. Once again the embroidery is a Designs by Sick with the name embroidered using an Echidna lettering program.
I really enjoyed embroidering these items. I hope the recipients enjoy these items.

I'm also loving these Ottobre pants (the jacket too, but since we're coming into spring it will have to wait).
I think this pink top also has possiblities, we'll see.

Just love! love! love! This top, so comfy and soft.
...... now I just need to take care of the 54m that found it's way to my sewing room this year.
Oh, did I mention that the first item of the new decade has been completed? More on that next post (along with some pics

Firstly, since I've misplaced my sewing log book (knew I should have just not bothered tidying my sewing room!), I think I'll blog my sewing - less likely to lose the laptop.
Secondly I really, really need to get not only my spiralling weight under control, but also need to get and exercise - it will simply be walking the block, but hey! that's better than sitting round developing an A frame.
So that's it! Just 2 goals ... anything else is a bonus.
