1950's Swap!

Another break from the epic colletion of Sydney pictures! Only one more of those posts to go - phew! They take a lot of time.

I just wanted to share this sneak peak with all of you - I recently signed up for a 1950's swap on craftster. I've decided to share the early stages of one on my projects for the swap. Even if my partner sees this post I think it will be ok as this sexy lady is going to change so much before she is finished.



I really love the way this photo worked out - I love the way the light is falling.


In other news, I bought a brand new sewing machine! It hasn't arrived yet as its from a one day specials website. I can't wait until it arrives.


Have a great weekend all xoxox

She certainly is a labour of love at the moment - I hope I can actually send her away when she is done!

This cross stitch is looking good so far :)
Can't wait to see what you make on your new sewing machine soon, must be so exciting!

Nikki - I will be sure to show off the final project - have another stitchy thing (or possibly two!) on the boil for this swap as well.

The Cookie Button - Oh I am so excited about the new sewing machine! I am hoping in arrives tommorrow. Unfortunately we are moving this coming weekend - so might be a while before I can play with it! But ordered a sewing book off Book Depository today **squeee***
