My sewing has been keeping me busy!!!

A pair of leggings using Crafty Mama knit. This is gorgeous material!
An hand dyed OLIVIA dress from the Farbenmix pattern. Mollie loves this one. As you can see I dyed it pink with a purple and yellow sunburst. Heaps of fun!A pair of summer pyjamas for Mollie with a fairy transfer from Spotlight!
A velour HENRIKA dress, again from Farbenmix.

Last look at our Autumn Table

Tomorrow it will change with the season change. Mollie has been busy making flowers and watering cans for our Winter table already. She would spend all day creating and crafty if she could - actually she does LOL
The joy of homeschooling!!!


Ok so why have i been so slow with Blogging, well no real reason sorry just busy with life!

We went for a two week holiday to Tasmania and Mebourne which was unreal. We went to the Scienceworks Museum and visted family in Melbourne. In Tasmania we did lots of fun things. We walked through caves, went to a zoo, saw fairy penguins up come up on the beach at Biceno, stopped at a bee hive, went to the Salamanca Markets and had a great time as a family.

When we got home we got back into the swing of life very quickly and within days we were building new vegetable gardens, visiting friends, going out on our boat, homeschooling group, gym and I was back at my sewing machine. I will post some photos next of what I have made over the last couple of weeks.

Just a quick update here, will get into more serious bloggin over the next day or two!
