busy weekend..

Mr Deekie Belle and I took the dogs on a lovely 2km bushwalk on Sunday afternoon.
Alora was sick in bed all weekend with a terrible sinus infection poor darling, I spent most of the weekend looking after her and the rest sewing madly so it was nice to have a couple of hours to just enjoy the afternoon with my darling...

As anyone who reads my blog regularly knows, I am a terrible photographer, so I got in a bit of practice, I love the Aussie bush, it can be so dramatic and haunting... I would love to be able to capture it's beauty the way others do...

As we strolled towards home the sky changed colour and I got this nice shot...

Not sure if I mentioned it before but I had a little trouble with two parcels going missing a couple of months back - Australia post still hasn't been able to track them down but I have remade them and they will be off to my gorgeous, very patient clients this week.

One of this things that I find difficult living in Australia is not being able to get my hands on every fabric and ribbon I need at the drop of a hat! My Christmas fabrics and ribbons were very much depleted after my busy 2009 season so had been waiting on some to arrive from the States to finish these orders off...

It's funny really, waiting on fabrics from the US, to make Jingle sox here in Oz, to send back to the US :o)!

Here's my weekend fun!

Two custom orders here, one funky Christmas styles and one sweet pastels

Riley Blake pastels, and glittery organza..

I girly love bows!

sparkly organza... so pretty!

Gorgeous 'funky gift' fabric, have lots of this in stock now!

Love this fabric line up, still waiting on ribbon for bows on the girl's ones - should be here this week - yay! My hubby's fav is the one on the right, I am quite low and that fabric and it is discontinued so if you want it in your Jingle Sox please be quick ;)!
More of this fabric on it's way too! Cute pink snowmen too - yum! I love these colors!

I will draw the Redwork wall hang on Friday so please don't forget to leave a comment to be in the draw, sorry for the delay, been a busy little bee! Back soon with more!

Hugs, Jen xo

It looks like you had a lovely wander through the bush Jen, it's so refreshing isn't it?
Those Jingle Sox are so gorgeous... The pastel colours are really sweet!

Your pictures came out great. Thank you for sharing with us. It's nice to see where you live.
I love your Jingle Sox. If I had a clue about the products you needed I would look around for you...but I'm craft-challenged. LOL.

It's fun to see the beauty that surrounds you. So very different than 'my' state of Washington!
