Eye Spy ... A Christmas Wish

Oh crap, how did I not get back here for a week. Caleb has been sick with gastro and the rest of us have been feeling pretty average too. There is the usual end of year run up madness too.
On the week-end I found time to clean out the wardrobe, it is so good having Mum here as I can actually find time to get some things done. Once I threw out the clothes that didn't fit and that I didn't feel good in and I wasn't ever going to fit in so "stop beating myself up about it" - there wasn't a lot left. I have got these gorgeous Colette patterns coming though and some cute strawberry fabric so I can actually enjoy the thought of summer. I am so excited - even if I am adding to my to-do-list. Promise to be back much sooner, and I am working through the Google Reader, even though it looks like Caleb is sick again.

I have used 2 colette patterns so far (Beignet and Eclair) and they were both so great to work with. The patterns go together perfectly and the instructions are awesome. I am going to order Parfait, Macaron and the new one Ceylon next.

You've almost convinced me to go and take a good hard look at my own wardrobe. Gulp.

Mmm. Maybe tomorrow.

(hope you're all feeling lots spiffier speedy-like!)

Beautiful patterns Cindy. It feels like you have had the lurgies forever. Hope they lift soon.

Have just gone through my cupboards. The op shops are getting quite a haul from my wardrobe.

Hang in there.

I'm in love with those patterns.. and I really hope the bugs and lurgies leave your house very soon. They don't sound like much fun!
