a weekend of catch up, DIY, goodies & Shop stock . . .

Greetings all,
So nice to be back in the swing of blogging & sewing . . . after a customer prepaid & requested a 'babushka cosmetic purse' at the Shop to collect on Saturday, i whipped up 10 for her to choose from (stock was low anyway, so i took in 15 more).  Loving the new lacey print in pink & purple, it will be perfect for cards & badges too.
Last night i adhered this lovely cream crochet style lace to white cotton fabric, cut into circles & started making brooches.  Humming along until i got the 13th one (cute Twilight Zone music for Friday the 13th today) got jammed in the machine & it's stuck in the down position.  Ooopppsss.  FYI these badge making machines, with the basics & parts to make the first 100 badges are $750, OUCH!!
How inviting is my box of goodies for a Shop Handmade delivery today?? 
What a lovely treat, surprise, token of sweetness (pun intented) from Nic at Yardage Design, with a little note saying 'sounds like i could do with some chocolate', yes indeedy.  Oh la la, fancy Koko Black chocolate too, thanks so much.  Funnily enough, i had just posted off a little envelope of goodies to Nic, then checked my PO Box to find this parcel.  Ahhh, what goes around . . . 
So totally happening cool crafty types - what are you doing on Friday night??  I'm protecting my new soft leather ankle boots, ahhhhh, i've been dying to wear these all week but not in the rain, they're too precious!!  I know, totally wild night in.  THEN some lounge craft, hand stitching, rock on!!
Finally, this little bloke has been wearing his puffy parker hood seperate to his puffy parker at school, part aviator, part dag!!  Oh well, keeps his ears toasty. 
Have lovely weekends people, for us, it's the party agenda - i'll post about it tomorrow, love a good dress up opportunity.  Think Russian tennis players, oh yes, for a sports party of course!!  Love Posie

Your new badge maker was a great investment I'd say! It'll pay for itself in no time at all.

Speaking of investments, the boots were an even better investment.
Hope you get to step out in them this weekend!
