Sunny days and Deloraine!

Gosh we have been enjoying the sun lately, then it surprises us with another winter day just so we don't get too comfortable! I thought that I would share some photos of my lovelies enjoying a local school fair. They absolutely loved the flying fox.. which I loved at 20c a turn! This was the sweetest fair with lots of homemade prizes and not a sweet to be seen .. just beautiful meals, fresh fruit, and homemade ginger beer! I have also posted a couple of photos of our trip to Deloraine for the craft fair. This was a huge day. We left home at 6am, drove for three hours, wandered around the endless beautiful stalls, before heading home a 6pm. Our heads hit the pillow at around 9.30pm. whew! A sleep in was most definitely wanted the next day. My children didnt love it as much as I did.. but they did love the children's section where they tried archery and recouped some energy to peek at more stalls!

A dress for Taylah!

I have finally finished the second dress made for Grandmas great granddaughters. I am really pleased with this one. I used lace from her stash, one of her skirts and some doilies that I had found. I started it weeks ago, but then flooded our house with the washing machine, and needed to empty rooms to have the flooring replaced. I kinda lost my sewing mojo. I am back now, and have started a craft night at my home to keep me motivated as the "to do" projects keep piling up!
Now to start dress number 3!
