One more sleep

In the last couple of weeks, this is the one little crafty thing that I've managed to create.
It's a market apron for Tinniegirl to wear at the Stitches and Craft show that begins in Melbourne today.

You may recognise the gorgeous birdie placemat that I've used for a pocket. It's one of the set of three that Lynsey from Swirly Thoughts and Cuteable sent me all the way from the UK.
I'm going to make myself a market apron using one of the other birdie placemats.

I can't find the presser foot for my Janome (it's packed in a box somewhere), so I had to use my sisters Husky to whip this one up. I've never tried a Husky before, but I liked it! I might just have to borrow it at some stage so that I can send my poor overworked machine in for a service.

My new house settles today so I should be picking up the keys sometime after 11AM. I'm extremely excited! The moving van is bringing back all of my earthly possessions tomorrow (including my bed), so it's only one more sleep and I'll be back in my own place once again.

I'm daydreaming about unpacking all my fabric.....

PS - There's a great giveaway over here at Badskirt!
