I finished these pants today also, I'm making a set for a friend who is giving them to another friend as a baby present. I'm going to add a singlet with a paw print on the front in the same fabric as the pants. Too cute.

I bought some gorgeous fabrics today (couldn't help myself!) and I can't wait to use them. I'd only just walked in the door with them and Miss 10 started harassing me to make her something. I'm hoping to make her a dress for Christmas. Shhhh, it's a surprise. ;)
I also bought a new pattern that I'm dying to try out. I want to try gathering. I love the little sundresses with the elaastic gathering. I've never tried it before. I love new challenges.

I love this time of year, stress and all!! I love the colours, the glitter, the excitement from the kids. I love pouring over the junk mail that arrives daily in the letterbox. I love visiting Santa in the shopping centre and watching the kids faces as they climb up to tell him what they wish for. I love the rush and bustle and the harried mothers. I'm not so keen on rude customers, but we won't go there!
I've just added two cute little Christmas outfits into my Madeit store. I'm really thrilled with the way they turned out. I couldn't resist the polar bear fabric when I saw it. It was a one off Fat Quarter that I dug out of the bottom of the rack at the local Big W. I think a few customers thought I was a little loopy, scrabbling away in the back of the racks, hoping that I'd find another piece, lol. Anyway, I'm pleased with the results.
