Fabric to me and more mother proudness!

On Wednesday Colette of Tessuti fabrics turned 40 and I won some fabric! How cool is that? Here is a photo of the goods along with the lovely labels she sent. I won on Wednesday and they were with me on Thursday! Thanks Colette! The silk/cotton on the far right has a lovely silky feel and I am thinking maybe a dress. The cotton in the middle is quite rough and course, so I am not sure what would be best for it. And the elephant fabric needs to be something for a little one. Perhaps a shirt for nephew Will for his 2nd birthday next Feb.


Also on Thursday we were invited to my girls Night of Excellence where they hand out awards to students for outstanding academic, community spirit, arts, music and sport achievements during the year. Both Sofie and Ellen got awards to community spirit (being involved in many school related activities). Ellen also go a house award but the biggy was the top student in media studies in VCE. She worked really hard all year and didn't lose one single mark! Mummy is very proud of both my babies.


Ellen was also so proud of herself she slept in her school uniform with her medal under her pillow..lol! So now we wait until January to find out what placement she is offered at uni.

Congratulations on your fabric win - but, even more so, on your two amazing daughters! There is no accomplishment more important in the world than raising strong, healthy, happy people who make the world a better place. :)

Re. Christmas gifts for co-workers - TEN!!!! Yikes!!! Well, in case it makes you feel any better (or at least less lonely) I haven't started the five mystery gifts for my co-workers this year (except to make a couple of draft versions to work out the pattern details) either. In fact, I officially announced that they wouldn't be ready until I return to work after the first of the new year. I'm taking the week after Christmas off work, and that's when I plan to make them...

lucky you winning Tessuti fabric! I've been eyeing off that 'coloured rice' fabric (the centre one in your photo) for a while to make a shirt dress with a flared skirt, when my waistline returns. Your gorgeous daughters look so much like you!
