Blogtoberfest Day 14/Shorts, Gifts & New Toys

I should probably hold some of this for another Blogtoberfest post incase I run out if things to post, Oh well, worse case I'll just cheat and re-post, bet no one will notice anyway!

Isabella's new shorts from the Oliver & S Puppet Show Tunic & Shorts pattern. Made up in a linen from Spotlight, can't wait to make some more.

The new member of our family. I hope he behaves, he's just come back from the fixer-man who kindly cleaned, preened and replaced blades. This little guy used to be my mums from years ago and when I received it he did nothing but eat fabric which is definitely a no-no in this house. I can't wait to try him out!

Liam showing off his fancy birthday present from Emma. How groovy is it!! I don't know how you manage to sew so neat Emma, the topstitching and applique are perfect. Any tips??

This is also from Emma. A surprise gift I got when we met up in our recent visit to the in-laws (note it was NOT a holiday. Just so you're corrected). How cool is it! I so desperately needed something to hold my cut threads and pins together right next to my machine and it's been getting a daily workout, and well the fabric is just too cute.

What cute shorts, I am sure they will get quite a workout. Liam's outfit is so cute. Hope the "new" machine behaves itself, and makes your life so much easier.

Lisa, that is the same overlocker as mine and mine was my mum's as well and recently I serviced mine and now it is as good as new and the fix it man said these juki overlockers are some of the best, so how is good is that!

Love the new Oliver & S shorts. Too cute! I'm glad you like the little pressies. No secrets to the applique - just visofix and the applique stitch is a pre-programmed one in my machine. Hope Liam had a very special birthday.

LOVE LOVE The shorts Lis! They're so cute!
Enjoy the new toy/overlocker.

And Em, don't you ever tell me you're a bad sewer! Your stuff is so neatly sewn. It's just all beautiful.
