Sneaky preview!

Just thought I'd post a quick preview of what I've been working on since exams finished!
Here's me and my friend Kim out for breakfast this morning before she heads back to Darwin, me with a slightly dopey face on (I may switch out this photo if it turned out better on her camera!) and my new circle skirt with little anchors.
Full post about this skirt hopefully coming soon, when I can convince my sister to help me take photos!

Checking in...

Just a quick note to say yes, I am still alive!  Just heading into exams now - 12 more sleeps until it's over and I can STOP STUDYING for 2 months!!

I have big plans for what I want to do in terms of sewing for this holidays, and possibly a big exciting project lined up - though not as big and exciting as Natalie's!  (Side note: even though it's been like six months, I still go to type in splatastic into my URL bar to find your blog, and then wonder where all of the new posts have gone - super smart right here!)

In a related topic - does anybody know where I can buy sequinned fabric with the sequins sewn on, online?  Preferably gold or bluey but I'm not going to be too picky, because at the moment I can't find any anywhere!  And do you have any tips for sewing with said fabric?  What I've gathered so far is to keep the sequins away from the seamlines, get a denim needle just in case and prepare to break a few, and pick something with as few seamlines and darts as possible - but any other information you can give me would be greatly appreciated!
