|Me-Made-Saturday, Megan Nielsen, #FMSphotoaday, Kettlebells.|
It's Saturday night and I am buggered!!!
I really wanted to start on a muslin for the Butterick 6582 but the hot water bottle and bed is so much more inviting. In my defense I've had a busy week... so busy that a package arrived on the 26th April and I wasn't able to collect it until today!! Nine days later!
The package was from sweet Erin of I-Heart-Fabric. This girl is a sewing machine! Pun intended??
I met Erin in February when she came to Melbourne to see Swedish House Mafia concert. We really hit it off and keep in touch regularly via text, Twitter and Instagram.
Erin has sent me a Megan Nielsen dress pattern!!
I love it baby, thank you!!! I will step out of my comfort zone and finally make something with sleeves, just for you. Keep an eye out in the post this week for a little something-something to show my appreciation ;) Hint: We will soon be dress twins!
|Me-Made-Saturday: M5850, cotton sateen version blogged here. Worn for the first time today.|
Floral linen blend version blogged here.
Time got away from me and I wasn't able to officially pledge to take part in MMMay13 however I've decided to sporadically take part and pledge to wear at least one me-made garment on the weekend. Weak, I know, considering I wore 16 outfits last year however I simply do not have any me-mades to wear during the week at work :(
Along with the #MMMAy13 challenge, I'm also doing the #FMSphotoaday challenge for the first time on Instagram. Really enjoying it so far. Tomorrow's prompt is 'paper'... I predict I'll be snapping a pic of some pattern tissue paper!
Fitness time! I've started kettlebell classes on Saturday mornings, it's a great work out, I should be able to get into those Burda pants in no time, haha. I was highly amused last Sunday when I woke up and could not move a muscle in my body. I literally rolled out of bed. On to the floor.
After today's kettlebell class, I rushed home to get ready for a BBQ at SixInchHeel's for bub D's 4th birthday. Her two boys are super adorable and so well behaved.
Hrm, how is it that two girls that have 1000s of pics of dumprings and coffee on their iphones have never taken of photo together... SixInch, we're doing a selfie together next time!

After the birthday, SixInchHeel and I headed out to Darn Cheap. Seriously, this woman is like my muse. Every time I see her, I have the urge to go buy fabric and go home and sew. Today I bought 5 meters of cotton sateen. Florals, of course!
The top floral I bought so I can be fabric twins with Erin, see her dress here. The other floral below, is same print as this (I bought few weeks ago after lunch with SixInchHeel), but in brown.
|Can't wait to cut you all up!|
Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far. I'm looking forward to the Julia Bobbin Mad Men Challenge reveal tomorrow! Can't wait to see all the dresses.
