Selvedges are beautiful

Yes, I am still alive. I have been doing boring but necessary stuff since my return from Melbourne such as calculating costs and typing up price lists for new products.

Here are a couple of pics from the Craft Show including the absolutely fabulous dress from Ric Rac created solely from selvedges. Selvedges are the non-fraying edges of woven fabrics that are often printed with the company's name. Jodie, Ric Rac's creator, has to be the most talented sewer I have met. Check out her blog for more amazing creations including 3D fabric teapots and cups.

This photo is from the Channel 9 coverage for the Mornings with Kerry-Anne show (see previous entry). Presenter Tracey Atkins is admiring my hemp/organic cotton canvas shorts (not yet available) while chatting to the creative director of the L'Oreal Fashion Festival about eco fashions.

Many of you are wondering if I get any sleep since I am always working at weird hours. Yes, it is now 3 in the morning here in Brisbane, Australia and the secret behind my bad sleeping patterns is that I have my husband relentlessy snoring quite loudly in the background. It's impossible to sleep so I am working instead. What can I do besides snuffing him with a pillow? He refuses to do anything "unnatural" about it. Does anybody have a solution that works?

If I had enough selvage I would love to make a skirt... A dress is a little too ambiguous at this stage for me!!! I can't wait to go to the show!!!
