Funky Pants

I made the kids some funky cord pants this week, so I thought I'd get some pics before we went out yesterday. Izy looks so grown up sitting on the swing unaided. I cant believe she turns 1 in just 2 weeks.

Beanie from Kylie

Kylie has been making quite a few beanies recently and Connor and myself were a couple of the lucky recipients, I'm still yet to get a photo of mine on but here is a pic of the one she made for Connor, it is beautifully made and fits perfectly (Aaron couldn't believe at first that it wasn't store bought)
Thanks again Kylie.

Birthday Presents

My niece turned 4 earlier this month and I had no idea what to give her (I haven't seen her since about October last year) so I thought dressups were the best way to go.
I made her a couple of these very simple no sew tutus (and bought some gorgeous little fairy wings to go with it) and also made her a couple of princess capes (which I forgot to get a photo of, and bought a little tiara to complete the outfit)

Hopefully I can get a pic of her all dressed up to pop on here at a later date.

Family Pics

Completely unrelated to sewing but I picked these photos up yesterday and thought I would share them, they are the first family photos we have had done, I'm really happy with how they turned out.

A bit of sewing at last

With the weather turning cold here after Anzac day I thought I had better get the kids PJ's that I cut out a few weeks ago finished, I still have one more top to applique for Connor and I'm slowly getting photos of all of them as the kids wear them, but here are a couple so you can get the general idea. (Connor has started pulling this scrunched up, eyes shut face everytime you tell him to smile at the camera now)

Also a gorgeous pic of Elizabeth walking, she walks more than she crawls now (after 3 weeks of practice) but amazingly as soon as I get the camera out she drops down and crawls to me so getting an action shot has been difficult (thats also an apology for the atrocious photos LOL)
And finally, a picture of the finished quilt I made for Breanna's Birthday (which was actually in January) It is only the second time I have attempted quilting (the first being a cot sized raggedy edge quilt) and being single bed size it was quite a challenge for me, but I'm happy with how it turned out (wonky seams and all) but more importantly, Breanna loves it and it was finished just in time for the cold weather to arrive.
