Tree Climbing

Having trouble uploading pictures and the order they are appearing, since blogger won't let me rearrange them on the page anymore, grrrr.
So the above collection is of my gorgeous mosaic butterfly Mum made me that hangs at the front door. A snippet of our new front fence made from recycled materials, cept the small dog wire to keep The Fox in and some pictures of what goes on here every afternoon after school: tree climbing and tyre swinging. We don't have DS's or whatever they are called!

My Favourite Skirt and a Bag

With school back and my little boy starting kindy this year, its time I got back into what's important. Sewing of course! But this year, now in fact, I need to do some serious organising in this here house. And I am going to get going in the garden too, just waiting on my Dad to construct the vegie patch, come on Dad!!! Anyway, above is my favourite skirt, I made it last year around Christmas time. It is a Make It Perfect versatile wrap skirt in Anna Maria's Garden Party. I have grand plans for gorgeous cushions and quilts using this range. Check this out, I stumbled across recently and have become a regular follower! Absolutely gorgeous and so happy to read each day.
This is a gift for a friend at school who had a big birthday the other day! So I made her a bag since she has admired them a couple of times. I had such a hard time picking the fabric to use, I hope she likes it!

I need to blog a bag I made recently thanks to inspiration from Lisa. It's a very cute bag with bamboo handles using Anna Maria's fabric yet again. Will get to that...
