Anna goes to Mikes

Yes, that's right! How exciting! These Anna smocks are now all packaged up and on there way to Meet me at Mikes. I must admit to being rather chuffed when Pip asked if I would like to send some her way. Who would have thought little ole me who sews on the dining room table would be making something for a real live in the flesh store!
Now I just need to convince Mr Big I need another trip to Melbourne so I can check out the new mikes myself. Maybe I could class it as a business trip. And this time maybe I could fly down instead of driving 10 hours with two toddlers in the backseat. Ahhhhh dreams............



I also popped this package in the post today. It looked so lovely all bundled up it felt a shame to squish it into a satchel. I hope it arrives safely, ready for opening day on the 6th of November.
