Yesterday in between school drop offs & pick up, 2 sets of swim classes, alot of work & phone calls, playing dinosaurs and sorting out the washing, Lil Mr & I somehow managed to bake these yesterday for gifts and our own bellies 😂

Wow! Thanks FB memories, 3 years ago the Mister and his cute apprentice Lil M painted this feature wall in my studio/our study, our work place, the sewing room, our work room, which we call the Ideas room. I love it so much, its such a lovely room to work in with all the colour! #currentlyinthereat5amtoday 😂

It was super nice to see lots of littles at @nippers2flippers2525 ringing the bell, and posing for pictures with their new certificates in hand, smiles beaming during assessment week 🏊‍♂️🏅 #fabidealadies

What did we get up today? Scrunchies! Me teaching Lil M how to sew... scrunchies and dolls skirts (made very much the same technique as a scrunchie) were the first things I learnt to make hand sewing. Dad showed me how to make the skirt and mum the scrunchie, I learnt to use a machine when I was 8 or 9 on my mums super basic, super vintage Celestial - (even back then in the very early 90's) it folded away into a little desk, and just did straight stitch. But I made plently on it!

Today Lil M didnt want to hand sew 😂 she said that she is good with that, she wants to use my 'sewer' as she calls it.

She just wanted to dive right in, I didnt think she was listening 'Mum! I dont want to make scrunchies, I want to make clothes!'😆 I told her all the basics, and that she could watch me sew up the scrunchies, I thought this was going to be a looong painful afternoon with her just wanting to figure everything out herself as always....after lunch she got back on, and she wanted to make a scarf, she had it all ready, all set up, put the foot down, slowly brought down the needle and pedaled away, reverse stitching and all!!!! She did fab 😆 We have a light little Singer on layby for her for Christmas, and Ill be putting together a sewing basket full of all the little bits, scissors, threads, measuring tape and bits of felt and fabrics. I think we made the right decision 😉
She has been really really interested in being a Fashion Designer and sketches lots of outfits, and asks me to get out my fabrics, and last night she asked if I could send her ideas into Project Runway Junior 😊. I love how inspired and excited she can get and how creative she is, I hope it never stops!!! ❤

WINDY CASTLE! Definitely windy castle today whoa!?! We were away for a night and we woke up to crazy images and stories of the havoc the wind caused that night, the anticipation of arriving home yesterday to see if there was any damage was high, but thankfully all good! We get hit so hard in the winds as we live at the bottom of the mountains and wind just rushes on over to crash! Woke up to crazy winds again...its a stay inside, make craft, draw, play board games, kind of day! 😮

Total appreciation post! Just received my latest @projecttenaustralia order. I loooove this print, I couldnt resist for some new beby gifts. I used one 3rd time round as my baby carry all, we use these in our swim bag and beach bag, we use the x large totes for our swim & beach bags, and given them as gifts, and I even use a big zipper pouch to carry all my samples and swatches to meetings, and Jacquie is an absolute pleasure to deal with! 👊 #lovemyanimalprint #supportsmall °

I hope those who have a public holiday today are all still snuggled up in a cozy bed. I have one tiny body upstairs in mine eating breakfast in bed 😂 I did just hear another little one up, and another running around in my bedroom 🤔 enjoy your Monday 👊
