late nights & sewing up a storm . . .

Greetings all,
Nothing like a magazine photo shoot deadline with less than 36 hours to produce a variety of handmade goodies & post interstate, to keep you up at night.  Here is a little peek at what was in the 'sack' of products which i offerred up to meet different parts of the brief . . .

bohemian gypsy colourful children's clothing theme

red, white & pink nursery decor, i like a bit of detail on a cushion

& accessories like toys . . . here piggie piggie - remember the 1940's vintage softie from the National Museum a few posts back, this was perfect inspiration!!

bright rainbow baby clothes - this was one of 5 i offered

& this was me at the sewing machine well past midnight . . .

so i'd wake up to this in the morning.  It was so windy outside when i tried to shoot this quilt, i had to peg it to the fence.  Look at that gorgeous blue sky!!
Also tossed in some hair accessories, pencil rolls, bunting flags & tutus, wish me luck something gets in the magazine.

So now i can rest up & get some sleep, as i work on more readymade products for an amazing business venture & also build up my handmade section in my shop again. 
We spent our afternoon poolside & had the entire complex to ourselves for much of the gusty afternoon.  I got in 20 laps before the children were iceblocks & wanted to go home to warm showers.  For once they were asking me if we could leave the pool.  Then i came home to some super exciting emails & orders, some days are just extra tops!!  Love Posie

It was worth the late night, everything looks fantastic. Such beautiful colours and fabrics. Well done!

Lizzie said...

Wow, where did the energy come from? Sounds like it was one of those 'the more pressure, the better I work situations'. Well done and fingers crossed for the magazine.

You will like the pool here - has hot showers and liquid soap (if I am feeling extra lazy I will give both kids a shower and into clean clthes before we head home - something to lok foward too)
