What have i been doing all day??

Well, apart from my normal day to day jobs.. brekky, dressed, beds, kisses, school drop, tidy, washing, playing, cuddling, watching, dishes, snacks, tea parties, Dora, get the picture??
I spent time....Photocopying, collating, stapling, gluing, folding, and packaging up...Patterns....lots and lots of Patterns!!
You may have read in a previous post that i am Sponsoring..
Sew It Together is an annual event that will be held in Sydney in 2011, on the weekend of March 25-27, 2011.
It brings together sewing and craft bloggers from around Australia (and last year, from NZ and Britain!) in a social setting, designed to bring together online friends to meet face to face.
The main event is the Saturday Crafting Session and a few other events are also planned for the weekend.
Each lucky person who attends will receive a goody bag filled... and i mean FILLED with amazing gifts and packages from sponsors all over.. you check out the whole list of sponsors HERE
What you’ll find in your goody bag (your Innergreen Corn Bag, made from 100% corn!):
 There will also be tons of prizes on the day, check them out HERE...
The weekend begins on Friday with a shopping trip..
First stop will be The Remnant Warehouse at Alexandria. This is a fabulous shop, and you can read more about it here!
From there we’ll be heading to the exciting, new (and oh so pretty!) Calico and Ivy shop in Balmain. It’s only just opened, and from all reports, it’s a cracker of a shop and we’re all quite excited in Sydney about having it in our midst.
After that, we’ll be off to the Prints Charming studio in Annandale. You’ll have a quick visit here in the shop (opening especially for us!), to make some purchases, before the Friday Fabric Shopping Trip concludes at 4:30pm. Followed by, Friday night drinks....
Saturday Crafting Session... full of workshops from Kathy -  Material Obsession, Sample Swaps, Prizes, Saturday night Dinner.
Sunday - A morning spent at Material Obsession..The shop will be open especially for us, for a little Fabric shopping, a browse through Kathy's inspirational quilts and she will also be doing a few demonstrations.
Sound Fun???....You can read all about it HERE
 So, for me?? As you can see, i have spent a few hours... Packaging up 100 Patterns to go into the goody bags... I have even had a little help along the way..
So the question is.... ARE you going to SEW IT TOGETHER???


  1. I am so jealous! I wish I could come (pouting now) !!!

  2. That sounds like sooooo much fun. Lot's of prep work, but well worth it. I am making two of your quilts Eden's Garden and Curlicue Crush. The first one is to practice curved piecing (I had never, ever done it before) and Curlicue Crush is for my youngest who could never find a pattern she liked and she loved this one and is getting married this year!! You are very talented. Have fun on your trip and take tons and tons of pictures.

  3. I'd love to be there! but it's a heck of a long way from the UK!!

  4. When I first found out about Sew It Together in Sydney this year I had thought about going. I have family in Sydney so it makes it easier. In the end I decided I couldn't go because we don't have the money at the moment and it would be hard logistically with a 6 month old baby....

    But your post made it all look so exciting again that I'm sorry I'm missing out :(
    Oh, well, I guess I'll have to wait till it comes back to Melbourne... or at least when the little one is a bit older and I can go away from her for a few days.

  5. I am! I am! I am going... on the shopping spree... and Saturday crafting.. See you there.


  6. I am going. Sounds busy. Very Busy. I better start making up those fabric packs you are so organized.

  7. That sounds like SO MUCH FUN!!! I wish I were closer. I'm sure my husband wouldn't appreciate me leaving him with our 3 children (little one just turned 1 month old), to go across the world just to meet my fellow creative friends. Bummer. (I'm from Ohio, USA). Have fun for me, will you?

  8. By the way, your little helper is so adorable!!!!

  9. I agree. Your helper is super cute! What a fun event! *sigh* so far away...

  10. Your living room looks like mine! I just got my first patterns packed tonight! Congratulations on your success, I hope to be able to share similar stories soon! lol

  11. Oh, I wish I were! A trip from Portland, Oregon to Sydney would be worth it for one of those goody bags!

  12. I have been thinking about going but at this point I don't know anyone else who is going so am really not sure. It does sound like a great weekend and the goody bags sound fabulous.
