Today has been a rainy day, and we need the rain so desperately here in dry old Melbourne! But why is it that the rain always comes when I have outdoor plans?? This morning I completed my second new design, got everything organised to go out and take the photos and then have spent the rest of the day waiting for the rain to stop. I finally decided to get on with something else, and the photos will just have to wait, I cannot change the weather with my will - as much as I might like to!
The reason for my impatience is that I was so excited to complete the 2nd design and I always feel anxious to do the official photos straight away as I know that either myself or one of my kiddies are sure to spill a drink on it, draw on it, accidentally cut it (and yes all of these things have happened before!!). It always feels like tempting fate, just having it laying around, but I am sure I can keep it in one piece until tomorrow. Here is a sneak peek to keep you guessing again!
One of the things that I have always wanted to do, since this blog began, is to have instructions/tutorials with tips and tricks about sewing our designs. We often get the same questions asked, such as "Is there a trick to turning Mrs Perkins' horns?" etc. We have thought about doing podcasts, we have thought of all sorts of things but there never seems to be the time or energy to do it all. This morning I was thinking (after answering that question yet again) and decided that the time was right, but instead of being too fancy, or making it something too big to chew, how about a tip a week? A mini tutorial each week (where possible!) showing a simple trick or tip that make make your creating a little easier? How about......
Starting next week I would love to start sharing some little tricks with you. Some of you may know them all already, but I hope that there will be some great "light-bulb" moments and sighs of relief when you see how simple things can be. Please feel free to comment or email with any tips of tricks you would really like to learn and we will see where this all goes.
Im looking forward to it! I am also looking forward to the long weekend - Yay!
