Tshirt for Logan by Tiana

Tiana did some t-shirt painting last week, here's Logan's t-shirt as worn by him :-D

Sewing wise, not a lot happening... I want to, I really want to - my Ottobre mag is here too & I want to make HEAPS out of that, but I have so much I want to sew that I can't decide what to sew first!!

I did take up a pair of tracky pants forTiana yesterday, does that count as sewing?!

3. What items other people have made would you have loved to have done yourself? - love the little shirred tops (oh poo, I've forgotten who made them The one's with the sleeves shirred too...

4. What takes your fancy in the notions world? Rik Rack? Ribbons? Trim?? - Another who hasn't used anything like this really. I find myself drooling over everything though (gee, I'm being helpful hey?!)

6. What's one thing you haven't tried but would like to? - ummm... don't know! I tend to try something as soon as I think I want to try it! OH - I know, I do want to try some pincushions, after seeing the link that was posted, yep that's one thing I haven't tried yet

7. Is there any patterns that you like in particular? - not really

Alexis is in 1 pants (but starting to need the length of 2s, and also has been wearing her brothers 00 shorts the last week or so And in size 2 tops. Logan is at that awkward in-between stage, somewhere between 00 & 0, depending on the make.

I am another planning on going to a few markets soon (if I can manage to get some serious sewing done first!) I also dream about not having to buy kids clothing (maybe still basic tshirts, and underwear, but hopefully not much more than that)

12. What is your favourite time of year? - ummm... I do love Christmas. And rugging up in winter. And getting into warm weather gear once winter has ended. OK, no real favourite then!

13. What is your favorite type of fabric? - oh I am so easily pleased, I don't have a favourite I drool over allllllll fabrics!

Tiana's windsock

Here it is in action (how kind of the wind to co-operate when I went out to take the photo!)

The next generation

My Mum bought Tiana a little sewing machine, a very basic, straight stitch only type thing, but gee - does Tiana think she is just it and a bit!!

Her first creation was a windsock, which is now set up at our front gate :-) (and of which I still need to take a photo of...)

Her next was a bib for her little brother :-) In these photos here you'll see her sewing said bib, and then showing off the finished product, she is so incredibly proud of her efforts :-D

I want to get sewing...

I have a number of UFO's sitting next to my machine.
I have a pile of fabric just begging to be chosen to be made into the next creation.
I have the desire to get it all done.
I just don't have the time...

I need to find the time...

I need to get myself organised a bit better! I need to make the time.

hmmmm, maybe if I got off the computer I could do something *blush*

ok, going now!

EB Softie swap

Thursday morning a parcel arrived on the door for my girls, and inside we found these adorable rag dolls :-)

Tiana quickly chose the doll dressed in blue (her favourite colour), leaving the stripes to Alexis.

A HUGE thankyou to the lovely Andrea & Ellyse :-D
