Another 2012 recap! The one to read

 So my short first year of blogging has come to an end....

 Wooo 14 followers already. I'm going to be pleased about that regardless of how many you may all have. I'm building my empire slowly...

So, as every blogger on the planet has already done, lets do an overview of my sewing life in 2012.

Sewing related activities ~ GO!

Started my certificate II in Millinery, made many hats, entered fashion on the fields!

Did a couple of sewing weekends where i made a 1780's shift and stay

Made two cosplays for my friend and I's 21st Japanese themed party

Undertook a short course in Bra making and Swimwear - yet to get my bra back from the Tafe...
Assisted in sewing costumes for productions of Fiddler on the roof, and Hairspray

Made 5 matching dresses for the Melbourne based swing group - The Swing Sisters

Made a fully corsetted wedding dress! (still waiting on the pro photos!)

And here are some things that were made inbetween.....

Thanks for a great year! I hope everyones 2013 is filled with many many amazing sewing projects and lots of smiles :-)

Peace out

Back from Japan, Some Ghibli Gifs

Hello everyone! A belated Merry Christmas and happy new year!


Happy Holidays from the Flying Family Howl!
May all your dreams come true. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧*:・゚✧

 I hope you all had an amazing festive season!
I have been quite abscent lately, I got back from Japan on Christmas Day, and have been relaxing/ doing lots of things ever since.

As a tribute to the fun I had in Japan, and that I got to go to the amazing Ghibli Museum in Mitaka (photos to come), here are some fun ghibli movie gifs. 

Anyone seen Up on Poppy Hill yet? Do it, very lovely and makes you smile. 

Because gifs are the best! ^__^

This one is me!
