The postman always rings twice

Apparently the postman does ring twice! Yesterday I had two exciting deliveries.

A bundle of fabric from Fabricworm. I figured that to make the most of postage charges from the US I needed to order a total of eight yards of fabric. What a trial!

I’m planning to make some of this up using the Oliver + S patterns I bought recently. First cab off the rank will be the Tea Party Sundress with matching bloomers that I’ve been dreaming about. I also have patterns for the School Photo Dress, the Music Box Jumper, and the Sailboat Top, Skirt and Pants. Hmmm…looks like I have alot of sewing to do!

The next delivery was a customised “Counting in French Poster” from the very sweet Janette of My Sweet Prints. She did a special “Counting in Fijian” poster for me. So gorgeous! And hopefully a learning tool for Alisi (and me).

It just needs a frame and a home on the wall and it will be perfect.
