I like to think that like most ladies I am a bundle on contradictions.
I love to sew, bake, make cocktails, play in the park with my dogs and wear pretty frocks. But I also love to lift crazy weights, run around the office pretending to be a velociraptor and play roller derby with one hell of a war face. Most of the times these different loves work in harmony but sometimes things get a whole lotta cray-cray. And that has been the last fortnight for sure. Sewing has been on the back burner but there has been one tiny project that I have been working on…
Ladies and gents, I would like to show you but a wee corner of my finished Sureau muslin. I’m officially in love with this sucker and I am so making numerous versions so I can have a wardrobe of fab sundresses… And yes- I totes make muslins out of pretty fabric now. Who can say no to 70s bedsheet patterns? Not this sassy lady!
And in the spirit of the fact that this is a sewing blog I am giving peeps fair warning that I will now be including a scary war face photo from my game on Saturday. If this is not your thang I recommend getting out now! In fact, I will even buffer you further from seeing my crazy eyes by including a picture of disapproving Pimble. Can you sense her lack of approval of everything? I know I can…
So here I be in our league grand final getting my block on. I’m the sassy lady in red in the middle with the scary war face.

I can honestly say Saturday night was the best I ever played and while my epic team the Red Bellied Black Hearts didn’t take the trophy we skated like bosses. Booyah!
And on that note I bid y’all adieu until next time. Just remember- don’t get between me and a fabric sale table. It could be dangerous… (totes kidding- I’d clear a path for us both!)
