Back in the swing of things it's time to tackle that list of custom orders I still need to complete. Lots to do so lets get cracking. 

First on my list is a Mama bag made from this very gorgeous vintage floral fabric, I've made one of these in this fabric before but this will be the last one I make. 

I'm also working on some gingerbread men decorations in between. I so love making those little guys :) After this bag is finished it will be a campervan fabric bag. Can't wait to get started in that one! 


Finally 'Sophia' (my very beautiful Singer) has mad it out of her storage case and into my studio. I still had to pinch myself lifting her into my shelving unit that I hadn't dreamt it and yes, she was mine!!!!! 

I still haven't manage to get round to painting my studio, even though I've had the paint for quite some time. We still have lots of other things to finish in the house before I can get started. I'm also on the lookout for some frames for some pieces of art work I want to put up and some kind of comfy but compact chair I can sit in when hand sewing. I'm so eager to get started!!! Can't wait to see what it looks like when it's finished.

Saturdays seem like a great day to write a blog post. The chaos of the week is over and we have the weekend to look forward to. 

Although we will be spending the weekend carrying on with decorating I have managed to start making some gingerbread men decorations. Since I haven't made any since just before the dreaded 'C' word last year ;) I'd forgotten just how much I love to make them. 

I've also almost finished the pattern draft for the new bag I'm going to be making. Hopefully the supplies I've ordered will be here soon so that I can get making. 

So tonight I'm actually going to try making Chicken tagine, the last time I attempted this it ended in disaster so fingers crossed it turns out OK. 

I'd love a patterned serving tagine like this one, but I just can't seem to find anywhere that sells them. Maybe I need to take a trip to Morocco? No that would be fab! But not very realistic :D
