new dress

I have just finished the first of four dresses I am making for 4 of Grandmas great granddaughters... using her skirts, doilies and bits and pieces from her sewing box. The first is a little dress made for a two year old. I used a skirt that grandma wore to the little tots mothers wedding. It is just waiting for me to head into town for a thick yellow ribbon to finish it off. I cant wait for my camera to charge and take a photo.
I have decide to just use my phone..please excuse the quality of the photos!

The colour is spot on in the first photo! Its a simple little pattern, pretty easy to understand for a learner like myself! The next one is for a 4 year old, and I am going to try something new and different. Hope you all enjoy your day!

Hello Spring!!

School holidays means late night reading in bed.....
Sun is shining, babies napping, washing drying... days cant get better than this. Its funny how you can continue to learn things about yourself as you get older. I have just noticed how much my mood relies upon the weather! I am loving these sunny days we have been having, and achieving so much more than usual. We have eating beautiful food lately.. fresh produce and recipes from my online favourite blogs. Last night dinner ( and also todays lunch - yum!) was a lovely spanakopita pie . I found the recipe on a blog called pod and three peas ( i am not sure how to link , but will make a attempt).
It is so good! and will make a appearance on our dinner table
again soon!
