These skirts are in the post on their way to Maryborough. I made one of the vintage panel skirts for my lovely friend Cint, she wore it to work and "hey presto" an order from a work collegue for 2 skirts. You've gotta love that!
I had grand plans for today. My workroom was going to be buzzing with activity, skirts galore cut out, sewn together and completed......... Unfortunately the dreaded cold is back again, will it ever go away? So after a trip to the chemist I am hoping that the activity will kick into gear soon. The mind is inspired and ready to go, the body not so!
I have finally mastered loading photos onto my blog, very easy now that I have changed them all to jpeg files!!! I am in the middle of crazy birthday party time. Its the time of the year where one or all of my children are attending birthday parties galore. This time it is Miss Middle who has 3 parties in 2 weeks, so I am busy doing last minute sewing projects for gifts. As I am running out of time I am coming up with fabulous ideas that I now don't have time to get done. I am at my most creative when I am too busy to follow through with what seems to be at the time a great idea. I must do some quick sketches so I don't forget!!!
So much for getting into this blogging thing and regularly updating. Its been a while but over the next week endeavour to add photos of BOB & MABEL clothing and bags. I haven't been able to sew for the past few weeks as its been school holidays. Its almost impossible to get anything done with the munchkins around.
Hi. I'm Mandy and this is my little slice of life where I share my family life and my creative pursuits.
BOB & MABEL is the result of a creative itch that resurfaced after too many years ignored. After studying Fine Art and working as an Art/Photography/Welfare teacher I followed the path to motherhood. Since having No.3 I started playing with the growing mountains of vintage fabric and BOB & MABEL arrived!
