Wow, it's been a while!

Went back to sewing class today. New term, new outfit to be made! I have decided, (or rather the teacher has decided) on a two piece outfit this time round. I haven't got the material yet, so today i just did bits and pieces. Finished off the legs of my pants, added straps to a dress, that sort of thing.

The two tops and pants just have some hand sewing now and then they will be totally complete. I still want to re-do the hook and eyes from my evening gown.

I will have to post a copy of the new outfit i will be making. It's a top and skirt, and i will be using Shantang. Can't wait actually, i really like the look of this outfit.

Wow, it's been a while!

This is so very exciting!

I was on the phone today to Janet, now you may ask "Who's Janet", well, I'm going to tell you!

Janet and Eric are a lovely couple that own the most beautiful farm in Kyneton. They have a beautiful homestead and a huge farm filled with the most friendliest animals ranging from horses, pigs, cows, and sheep and my favourite - the llamas!

We have stayed there a few times now and it is just so relaxing, you can do as much or as little as you want.

So, what has this got to do with vintage you may ask, and why am i so excited?? Well, it's actually got nothing to do with vintage but i am so excited and really touched because as i said earlier, I was on the phone to Janet today and she was asking me if i had seen their website, which i knew they were in the middle of getting it up and running, so i logged onto the site and low and behold but whose faces do i see in the guests section?? Moi and my family. How excitment!

Here is the link, make sure you check it out, and if you ever come to Melbourne for a holiday, be sure to go and say g'day to Janet and Eric!
