Girl's Day Out

Starting with a trip to the kids hairdressers. The kids sit in either a pedal car, airplane (Bella's seat of choice) or a fire truck for their hair cut while watching DVDs.

They always come home with a super cute hair do after and the girls have butterflies or flowers in their hair. Today since it was a bit quieter the manager was even doing paintings on their arms.

Next stop The Remnant Warehouse hoping for some fabric for their jackets... score!

100% Caramel Wool, $22 for 2 meters for Bella, 100% Japanese Wool, $24 for 2 meters for Liam and I couldn't help grab the purple fabric for a top for me and the 2.5m remnant of tracksuit jersey for only $15 with a piece of matching ribbing.

Back in the car to the Kino Craft Fair in the city.

20% off craft books so I finally bit the bullet and bought some Japanese Sewing Books. The two Japanese books ended up being just over $20 each which is pretty good for here in Aus. I'm hoping there as easy as I've read on a few blogs!

I also grabbed I Love Patchwork... I think the pictures sucked me in. The writer loves using linen, as do I, so everything appealed.

And I grabbed this Kokka panel from Amy. I'm tempted to slice it up into the different blocks and piece it together for a baby quilt. Hopefully Amy's shop opens up again soon and I can grab another one for another baby boy coming this year.

Then finally lunch at Ichiban Boshi. Bella loves any Japanese food. Ok she loves ANY food, but noodles and soup in one bowl is her kind of meal.

Playing while we wait...

Hmmm Miso soup to start...

Followed by Tokyo Ramen and Deep Fried Chicken with rice to share. I ordered 2 dishes (adult sized) thinking we'd have something left to take home for the boys. Nope.

And whats a special girls day out without ice cream? "White" for her and Green Tea for me.

Then she found the hidden backup vegemite sandwich I had in my bag and ate it on the way back to the car. BOTTOMLESS-PITT.

What a great day out! You bought some wonderful things. How did you know Kinokuniya had a sale on craft books? I'd go into the city for that! It's such a beautiful bookshop.

I could use a great girls day like that. Those books look terrific. I can't wait to hear what you think of them because I've been thinking of getting some of my own but am a little nervous.

Happy sewing!

What a great day - love the kids hairdresser with the airplane to sit in!
And the book shop looks great too. Wish there was one in Melbourne. Can't wait to see some of your creations.
