So many packages!

Well, I've been waiting on so many packages these past few weeks, and they finally arrived (well, not all).
First - I won such a great giveaway at my favorite UK store dots N Stripes. Nicole has a giveaway there every week to celebrate 3 years to the shop! Here's the link to that!.
I won a pattern... my favorite! A Farbenmix pattern, another obsession of mine, I now have the Oona pattern, and I can't wait to get started with it...

I also got the SideWinder from zandsfavrics. The part to wind the bobbin of machine isn't working.. so when I received this package I sat for about 30 minutes just winding bobbins!
How fun -)

I also got a packge of cute buttons and ribbons from ebay. I'd give the link except I can;t seem to find it at the minute, and a bunch of patterns from They sometimes have great sales, and I place the order with another Israeli customer, it is a great deal.

Now, as to what I did - I've been busy, but didn't take photos yet. All that I did take photos of is a costume for my 6 years old. We're getting close to Purim, the Israeli Holiday of dressing up. I know it will be very difficult to find a high quality princess dress with long sleeves (the manufacturers always seem to forget that Purim is in the middle if the winter!!!) in a reasonable price, so I decided that this year I'll be making my girls costumes...

So from the last burda - 01/2010 pattern 150 - the princess dress

The dress is made from terrible fabrics, it was very difficult to cut! The upper layer is stretch sheer fabric and I had troubles putting it on, but it'll do the job for Purim. I still need to put on the dress bows and flowers, to make my girl either the 'nature princess', the 'flowers princess' or something else.

I also has the chance to complete the farbenmix Hoverrock for my 6 years old. I just love this pattern! It cam out really sweet on my opinion...

I am now working on a similar princess dress for my 3 years old. Her birthday is arriving soon, so after that costume I'll need to start attending to the cakes...
