If you planned on going to the the fabric and craft sale shown below, but haven't been yet- HURRY UP! Or you will seriously miss out on everything!

I was there 20 minutes after opening, and it was busy. People were carrying bolts and armloads of yummy fabric, and every notion under the sun too.

I got quite a bit off stuff, I must admit. I started to get excitedly carried away. I only stopped looking because I couldn't carry any more, or my arms would have fallen off!

The haul:
  • About 20m of chocolate brown brushed drill- $10. Bargain!!
  • 4m pink/white/ grey check wool- $7
  • 5+m brown check soft wool- $18 (this is divinely soft)
  • 2m grey drill
  • 3m pink trackie material
  • 2m lightweight purple linen
  • embroidery hoop
  • and 12 zippers
All for just under $40!

Now that I've got it, what to do with it?????

Edit: If you do decide to go, it's cash only. I found out the hard way.

hi- ho, hi-ho, off to the craft sale I go....

Wish me luck! I'm off to here this morning.

I'll tell you what it's like when I get a couple or so hours ( i expect!).

the new look

Welcome to the new look 'little owls' (what was owlet).

So this is the look I have settled on... finally.

Loading the template has caused me to lose a few bits and bobs in my sidebar. Hopefully I can get them all up and running again soon'ish.

I love this look. I love the colours. I love the layout.

This is hopefully the start of something new for me......

what's in a name?

Ok, so I haven't been around for a while. Not much blogging, let alone looking at other people in 'Blogland'.
So when turning on the computer today and quickly peeking at everyone's blogs, I was mortified to discover that someone else has the name/brand Owlet and does the same sort of stuff that I was looking at creating. I went and checked out 'Owlets' bloggy stats and turns out she has been around a lot longer than I. So I think it is only fair that I change my name. *sigh* (i really liked the name too).

But what is in a name? And how am I to try and come up with an orignal name/branding? Help!! I'm stuck. Any ideas??
