This month being Breast Cancer awareness month I headed over to take part in the local walk in Tauranga.
Boy has it grown since the first one I took part in! Talk about pink - there was a great effort by ladies (and the odd man) to get into the theme, so I was pleased I had taken some time to take these raw materials

The tops (cos I had one for myself and one for Tanya) were nice and long so figured we would wear them over a black t-shirt and black leggings. And to accesorise the multipurpose headband/neckband/wristband.
I loved the silky flowers with the addition of the blingy centre thingy - see
They just added a bit of sophistication to the look:)

Been a busy week in the non-sewing creating arena designing,making and sending out invites for the great 71st birthday - Vinces 50th and Sams 21st. Here's the invite I came up with on the theme "Born to Be Wild"
Not quite as funky as I would've liked to have done but with a tight timeframe it was a matter of getting it done!!!
Yesterday I finally was able to get to some sewing creating - yay - so hopefully will be able to share photos of that tomorrow.
