What I wore . . .

Braving the snow to do some posting! 
Check out my new car too (well I say new . . . I mean its 10 years old. The youngest Iv ever owned)
I havent drove her in the snow yet, she needs a new tyre and I dont fancy sliding around on the ice.
ooo and do you like my bag!

What I wore . . .

Yesterday, I got my mum to take a couple of quick snaps before I headed out to do some volunteer work at a local charity shop. You know I said yesterday that I try not to wear black, well this is one of those exceptions, the bird print dress was way too cute to pass up.

Its not pink but its still cute . . .

Topshops unique autumn and winter collection 2010. 

I fell in love with this collection as soon as I saw it. I usually dread winter wear and its drab colour schemes. (I try my hardest never to purchase or wear anything black) unless I really have to that is. But im warming to these tones. Im especialy drawn to the mix of fabrics, from knits to furs, the head pieces are also super fun! Hot pants and over the knee leg warmers in winter? yes please!

Anyway the point of this post is to tell you all that I shall be creating a wonderfully cute mini winter collection (using some of the fabrics I posted last week) 

When will it be ready I hear you ask? Well January the 2nd as I will be recovering from New Years eve celebrations on the first no doubt.

Anything you would particularly like to see me make? 
Suggestions are always welcome!

Im thinking warm thoughts

How many weeks till its summer? 

I am not a winter girl. Im cold, tired, achey and grumpy I feel like hibernating. I keep avoiding nights out with friends to hide away under my warm duvet. Im a total granny in winter. Perhaps I need to move to a warmer country

Heres a few pictures from my Florida travels.

I wish I was on a warm beach right now.

Some recent creations . . .

So im back home and getting my craft on again. My industrial machine is tucked away in the garage so im not making any clothing just yet.

Theres lots I want to do and one huge aim is to use up all of my scraps! I have bags and bags of them. I feel like a crazy person holding onto all these off cuts so I MUST put them to good use. So far I have been on a pom pom and yoyo making spree, check it out!

If you would like to shop just click on the pictures :)
