my creative space 'from the factory floor'

Greetings all,
Ah, Thursday again, i lost 3 days this week to a migraine & actually in the heat, i felt extra dizzy even though i was drinking water like a fish.  Somehow i managed to make 18 pairs of pants for the Shop so i actually have stock to sell. 
 So live from the factory floor (which is what it's like during mass production in the studio) this is what you'll find . . . disgruntled & non compliant models . . . 
 a pile of trousers which need pressing . . .
 oh, i grabbed a passing 9y.o. girl as a suitable model for boy's size 4 pants . . . no she wouldn't put down the rhino & lift up the pink Tshirt . . .
 i am so in love with these fabrics, i'm going to make myself some skirts . . .
 i'd even like this print in a dress!!
 Australia Day is over for another year, we enjoyed this Lamington Swiss Roll, yumbo!!
 Special mention to Toni from Make it Perfect, who put on this amazing effort to band together handmade raffles, auctions & donations . . .

big pats on your backs everyone who created or entered or just donated!!  Pretty excited that this little blog raised $775 from the auction & raffle, i was part of the whopping The Red Thread mega raffle prize (by donation of fabric, not winning, sigh) which raised $3260!!  I entered dozens of auctions & raffles, i won some hair clips, yippee, my girls will be wrapped.  Who says blogging is daggy or weird, NOT Queenslanders who are going to benefit. 
Happy Creative Spaces everyone, thanks Kirsty for hosting, love Posie

Lovely that you are feeling better and beautiful models : ) I love that fair print with the wheel, train and carosel horses - I have it in the pink/salmon and have made gorgeous little dresses for my market stock, with lace trim and cupcake ties - there's a little pic in a blog post from last week.

Glad you are feeling better.

Love your fabrics too! Migraines are a bummer - you have my complete sympathy being a fellow sufferer and losing complete days throughout the year with them. Funny 9 year old model you found.

Your reluctant models made me laugh! Adore those fabrics for boys' shorts... and I'm amazed that you churned all these out with a migraine and in the heat. Amazed. x

The Moerks said...

Ha ha, still chuckling at the models. They say never work with kids and animals! I can't believe you managed to achieve all that with a migraine.
Congratulations on the terrific fund raising venture. Well done.
I have finally posted a thank you for the
Beloved Book. I loved it and look forward to flipping through it again and again. Thanks again. Deb

The Clip Cafe said...

I love those fabrics too. And YUM i want the cake now (we have none at all of any sort in the house...) YAY to all that $$ raised. I hear people keep giving in totals so is probably more than that anyway - great stuff!

Cate said...

Holy cow $99K - well done :-)

And I completely loooove that carnival fabric (so perfect for this time of year as our little town has a summer carnival every xmas!!)

Have a great weekend (so glad to hear the migrane went away eventually!)
