and Sew On and Sew On....

Ekka show holiday yesterday. Woohoooo! I slept in to the ungodly hour of 9am! Wow I must have been tired. 
I decided to try my hand at sewing a Gypsy top. I have a big box of various fabrics that I have bought over the years. The other day I was rummaging through  it & came across some bandana print fabric that I bought a million years ago & put it away.
"This would make a fabbo peasant style cowgirl top!" I thought.
So on Tuesday off I waddled to Lincraft to flick through the pattern books. I finally came across one that was suitable (read: one that a one-armed preschooler with tourettes could sew).
Sewing projects get me really excited. Last Christmas break I found an A-line skirt pattern suitable for sewing idiots like me & I went crazy & sewed about 6 skirts in 4 days! So I got myself all set up in the dining room. It was also my first time doing elastic. Fast forward about 2 1/2 hours & wallah!
I've got myself a great cowdee top for the next hillbilly knees-up! Yeeharr.
I was quite chuffed and well super excited. I quickly jumped into the hot rod (1996 Nissan Pathfinder) & zoomed to Spotlight. OMG OMG O.M.G. I could have gone crazzzzzyyyy. So many AMAZING fabrics.
I should have taken photos. I started getting a bit overwelmed so I quickly grabbed 2 fabrics to make another two of these tops. One is a navy & whitle polka dot & one is the most adorable white with strawberry print. *Squeals !*
I've already started on the polka dot one. It's going to be a bit fancy with some ric-rac.
Yep I've got the sewing buzzzzzz............
