Riley, ready to go.

Well, maybe I can squeeze another couple of posts in. Mainly because my sewing machine is broken!! Arghhhh! Going over to mum and dad's today for a bit of a sewing machine frenzy to get the last of the gang's sleeping bags done.
Well, Riley is all ready for his sleep over...birthday gift... to big Riley who is two on Sunday. I am really happy with how everything turned out. The lining of his sleeping bag is an old polar fleece baby blanket of M's. It was barely used by us and by it's previous owner, but too nice not to be used for something. Happy happy, I'm even happy with the size of the shoe box, the colour of the tissue paper (the only one they had, other than white), the card, the wrapping paper........happy happy happy!
Must email Hillary and tell her how much I enjoy making her dolls!

One crazy Santa's elf

Hi, I can't say much! Got too much to do.
Am baking and sewing as well as the usual activities. I have sleeping bags to make for the gang (wanted to do back packs too, no time). Just to slow me down, I can't find my zip foot for the machine! So I am hand sewing them. Despite the time restrains, I'm actually enjoying the hive of activity. Don't they look cute? The little girl's dress material is from a breast feeding top of mine, I loved the fabric, but it just got too billowy now that we don't have boobie anymore. Thanks Hillary Lang, what a great pattern to make! Well, got to go, will be taking a break from the computer, and don't know if I'll get a chance to blog again. If I don't, Merry Christmas to you! All the best for a fruitful New Year! See you in Feb!

A big thank you to Reb!

Look at what I got in the post?!!!
Thank you so much for the gorgeous photo Rebecca! I was secretly hoping that I would receive one of your super photos one day! Don't know where to put it yet, but we are going to have a putting up of pictures session soon. Until then it is on display in the living room. I also love the presentation, the lovely paper, the lovely ribbon and the very cute card!!

Danger signs don't have to be ugly or boring. I spotted this one getting off the ferry, and I find it kinda funky!
