Wordless Weekend

More wordless weekends here

Ottobre 1/2009 no 19

In Mezzaine. Love the colours, and so does the little princess (the only colour she knows I think is pink)
We had a struggle to get her to stand still, thus why no great action shots. Will get a real camera soon!
And it will get ironed.
Will defiantly be making more of these skirts. Just gotta refine how I do the pockets as attaching the ric rac was a little pita! And the pockets are crooked as well. I'm not changing it though as you cant tell when its being worn.
I also omitted the lace- although I bought 3 diff types of lace to see which one suited. I jut felt that it looked best without it.

Happy 6th Birthday to my biggest boy!

The day Mitchell was born, being held by me- after a long labour and an emergency c-section. Look how alert he is!
My cheeks are red from the difficult labour, broken capillaries, puffy face and blood shot eyes.
Daddy, after being with me all night!

day he was born!

How much he has gown. He has brough us so much delight over the past 6 years, and we are looking forward to many many more to come.
Love you lots Mitch!!

Craft to do list.

Inspired by my little sister (well she is only about 2cm shorter and 2y4m younger) an official to do list. Complete with pics of the fabrics I have chosen. I wonder if this will actually work and keep me focused on the tasks ahead.
I may just post a few I think.
First of the bat is my nieces birthday pressie. As my sister has a blog I am not going to post any details about this, not to mention that I really don't know what I am doing yet...
Second is some Ottobre 1/2009 Heretta skirt. I saw the one that Sara did for her Moo, and felt it looked so ace I would follow suit. Hope to be using Patty Youngs Mezzanine. Not sure what order yet though.
Then there is Mod Kids Emma
I have bought some of My sister and Me range of fabric, that's quite old actually. Called Spring Fling. Its quite gelati looking, will be interesting to see if it turns out as I have imagined it will.
Then there is also the Jule tops, the peasant tops (that i tend to make then not wear) and the adult clothing that I have my sights set on.
And of course I cannot forget the boys. Hope to be making them more denim shorts with feature pockets, especially as Tyler has not taken the 'fire pants' jeans off since I made them (they are a tad tight now).
Oh yeah and cant forget another Koyoto. I have made one, which hasn't been blogged (long story) and found it quite enjoyable to make, so will defiantly be making another!
I think that's the problem with sewing, sometimes you can make something once, and you get tripped up on one thing, so you hesitate to make it again. Really I should look at these patterns and realise that a) 2nd time around is likely to be easier and b) the effort is worth it!
Anyway, that's my sewing in a nut shell!

Now I know how the other mothers feel when...

When their daughters find some scissors and take to their hair with them.

She wasn't very proud of herself. Not sure what to do really. Will try and make some head bands and wait for it to grow back I guess.
