Oh so sick

I was sick, so sick. But we got through it. I soldiered on with Codral for the whole weekend, I would have been a mess without it. I hardly had a voice, my head was throbbing, my throat was burning, but we did it. Poor Nickie was the same. Now I'm off the Codral, don't like taking anything other than Panadol usually but just had to for the weekend, and I'm letting this revolting flu work it's way out itself.
It was my nieces 21st on Friday night too and I felt so sick going up the Skytower. But what an amazing restaurant. The food was stunning and the view incredible, even though it was a bit cloudy. Love how you go right round in just under an hour I think it is. Just wished I'd felt better to appreciate it more.
So great to see people at SENZ, sorry if I wasn't very talkative and poor Yolande was so happy to see me and I felt like total crap at the very minute she came over, I was just ready to take my next Codral fix. Catch up soon I hope Yo.

So here's the fabric LO I taught at SENZ :)
And the Home CanvasBack soon with more projects I've been working on.

SENZ this weekend

We are super busy getting ready for SENZ this weekend. I am teaching 2 classes, one is full and the other about 3/4 full, should be fun fun fun.
Here's a sneak of them:I have also been busy making samples of some of the yummy product we will have there including the Heidi Swapp Invisibles which I've used in this LO. They are the coolest thing, I've rubbed different coloured chalks over the background to give this dreamy effect. And I love the Prima vines, how cool are they. This photo is crap sorry, sooo much better IRL.The adorable Websters Pages Sweet As Cherry Pie range - if you are doing my HOME Canvas class you will get a nice surprise. And one of my favourite Collections range things - the owl, he is so cool when he's made up.
And I am pretty proud of myself for making this apron. Last year at SENZ Rachel and Kate wore cute as handmade aprons and I was determined to make one this year, so I spent the day on Saturday making this. I found a simple half apron pattern on the net and then just added bits to it including a pocket (clever me) and kept adding and adding and I still have a few more things I want to add too. I'm so proud of me, hehe.
My lovely work friend Nickie is now blogging, check her out here

Hopefully be back with more soon.
