This is .. My Favourite Quote - and More Sewing

"Go Where There is No Path and Leave a Trail" - I loved it through my adolescence and I still love it to this day, feeling a little like that as I venture off to the Market.
Hip Hip to Strawberry Kisses for this weeks theme and Hooray for Three Buttons for more.

Sewing, Sewing, Sewing. Here are some more creations and I have been working on my beloved super hero capes too - more of that tomorrow. All this makes me HAPPY too, Mum's invaluable help makes me happy, Glen taking next Sunday off to join me at the market = Super Happy. Everyones lovely and supportive comments = SUPER DUPER HAPPY. I find blogging connects me with so many great ideas. These are a few inspired ones.

After I did the girl bloomer set I was deciding to do a boy one and wasn't sure if the fellas were into that sort of thing, until I read this. So this is the funky cars inspired one, but I think the boys like to call them nappy covers not bloomers, for street cred - you know.
When I first started looking at all the girl designs together I realised I had no pink so I have this box pleat now in pink and reversable cape with button, the other side is shimmery pink - so I am calling this one the Elliboo collection.

The dress is just beautiful, how I love pleats.
