Post 200!

I know, I know, I've done it again. But let's ignore the fact I've been ignoring my blog because this is post number 200 for me - YIPPEE!

And today I'm blogging from The Frog Prince, the divine new babyshop in Oamaru. Which leads me onto an announcement - The Frog Prince is stocking my clothes! I have my very own stand and Dagmar, the shop's owner, is going to host a launch with a runway show and all. It's all very exciting.

I also have an astounding number of commissions lined up, and my clothes are going to feature in a photo shoot with some amazing local photographers. Things are coming up roses.

In the meantime, I'm sewing as much as I can, when I can. It's proving harder than I first thought though. Remy is 14 months old now and more than a full-time job. Luckily, he's started sleeping quite well so I have most evenings free (which I generally spend sitting on the couch, staring blankly into space...).

The other thing that is proving quite difficult is sourcing fabric. There is a fabric shop here - and I hope what I'm about to say doesn't get me struck by lightening - but their selection of fabric is limited, generally low-quality, and very expensive for what it is. Oh how I miss being able to pop out to Global Fabrics...

Thank goodness I have an understanding mother who is going to take me to Christchurch in a couple of weeks to shop, shop, shop until I drop.

A quick warning for regular viewers - for October I have the lofty goal of a post a day. Expect some serious drivel.
