We survived the June/July school holidays, yes I know we are now in week 5 but it seems like they were just on holidays. We went away to the Blue Mountains with this crazy crew... no not the guy in the grey shirt and glasses standing up, but he is in all my shots of the family... weird. (Just realised Bella and Liam are wearing beanies I made them for our trip..)
We bunkered down and stayed warm in a big house with my parents to celebrate my Dad turning 70.
Thank goodness now the weather has changed, we are definitely on our way out of winter and into spring so there is planning of sewing projects and a little (maybe more than a little) online shopping to start filling up the non-exsistent spring/summer wardrobes especially for Isabella and Evangeline.
I made a head start last week at Craft Group where I left with a top for Bella and a dress for Eva cut out, which I ended up sewing over the weekend as well as cutting out and finishing another top for Eva.
Matching Oliver and S Ruffle Halter tops.. they were so excited to have matching.
Pretty yellow and Blue cottons, for some shorts and simple popover tops I plan on making using the Oliver and S Popover Sundress pattern.
Left: Cotton for a Hanami top from StraightGrain I bought yesterday... such a sweet pattern.
Right: Cotton for either a Hanami dress or a Reversible Wrap topAnd the pile of lovely knits I hadn't seen before, the top three for some summer PJs for the girls using a pattern from Alex and Anna and the bottom for a Racerback dress. If I have any left, I think I'll try drafting a simple t-shirt dress and maybe a Banyan Tee.
So those are the plans.. and while the sewjo is running I'll be hitting the list hard!
