paper and stitch

I spent yesterday in the shop, trying to catch up on some cutting out and printing after Christmas ( very little stock left! arrgghh!) The yellow is a custom order for a woman who loved my hand printed kids dresses and 'had to have one' in her size.
There has been alot of pfaffing about trying to get the size correct ( help I have no pattern making skills!)
I am posting it off to  her today , so fingers crossed it will fit.
While I was there I printed up a few girls dresses aswell.
my card stocks in the shop  were very low so I spent a bit of time making some newbies.
This one is vintage fabric and vintage wallpaper with machine stitching.
As are these few... I am going to do some more screen printed cards soon.
I really really LOVe stitching on paper.
I am a little sad as my trusty old Janome was very sick, the man rang from the service centre this morning and its going to be cheaper to buy a new machine than to fix the old one.
sad, but very exciting to have a spanking new machine

Hi Mim, I laughed when I saw your little vintage birdie cards (gorgeous) you must've been making them at the same time I was doing my hearts! I like sewing on cardboard too.

Also I'm happy to help out with basic pattern making questions, I have some info on children's sizing and also, amount of ease for garments you can photocopy. I'm spewing that a lot of my notes seem to have disappeared, including the Australian standards sizing ones for women.
