As per the title of this post…just busy dealing with life, as you do – but I am sewing, something I can’t share quite yet…the RNHS rugby jersey is awaiting my locating some white drill for the collar (and also working out how to sew the button placket), also I have fabric for one of the two birthday dress patterns on the short list…I even pre-washed it…and I may have seen fabric for the other one…
… because who am I kidding? I’m going to sew them both up anyway!
Yesterday was the most beautiful day here in Wellington (today too it turns out!) and I just wanted to go to the beach…and then go home and sew dress after dress after dress for summer, haha!
Anyway, back to the fabric: The dress I really want to sew requires more fabric that I usually buy for stashing - around 3.5 meters. So I’ve been wandering the fabric stores for a while, waiting for something to grab me – yesterday I saw this gorgeous sateen cotton in white with a blue zigzag running across the width – just trying to get my head around how it will piece up and gauging how much of a headache lining up zigzags will give me! I forgot to look at the cutting layout last night so if I remember tonight and I can see it working I’ll go buy the pretty fabric tomorrow – the shop is just down the road, my office is dangerously central in Wellington, dangerously fun ;)
In other news I decided to give myself a creative kick and do one of those photo-a-day challenges. I saw it on another Wellington blogger’s site, Modern Vintage Cupcakes. Kat has been playing since mid September and now I am going to play too :)

Here is this month’s list:
I am not going to post my photos everyday to this blog, I will do a weekly round-up instead but if you want to see my photos before then I am posting
to my Pinterest account here
EDIT 14.01.2013 – Because Pinterest is being a little b*tch I am posting via Photobucket instead – please use the links to each months album under the photoadaypage at the top of my blog :)
(because I can’t work out that whole instagram thingee and I don’t “tweet” either) so feel free to follow that board, or all my boards, or just some of them…
However, since this is day one, here is day one’s photo:
It was a pretty easy one for me! :D
