Life story - the short version

I'm a fun loving 30 something year old . Married my favourite guy. Started on my production of children & number 1 is an adorable boy. Big on family. Big on craft. Love country music. Love fuss free + practical ...aaand maybe with just a little bow for decoration!

Love the law of attraction too. And singing ...dancing ...bright colours and excessive punctuation ...and stationery.

Mini TheCoolest #2 due in January 2013!

You may have noticed my sewing machine has not got a lot of attention lately. Not many pics and blogs to share. My block of the month is gathering dust despite a keen interest in finishing the very last block.
But I get like this in the first trimester of pregnancy... yep, we're having another baby!!

Although I lost my personal sewjo, I'm excited to have been asked to make 12 aprons for a friend's 5 year old's cucake party. The fabric is at my house already and I can't wait to get cutting. I haven't made 12 of anything before (except individual quilts) and I'm looking forward to seeing how quick they come together, in a production line.
Then they're off to my friend Kelly Maris Creations to have a cupcake embroidered onto them! The pattern is for a convertible apron, and seeing as there are strategically placed handles, it turns from an apron into a bag!

I've also been invited to help out with costumes for the local musical production Peter Pan so I'll be making costumes for 10-14 year olds. Really glad to be a part of it even though I can't commit the time needed to be on stage and sing.

I think I'll get the aprons done first, and I hope that them coming together quickly inspires me to get stuck into the costumes and deliver early!
Love Cass
