Been a busy weekend

I have been sewing a bit recently but I'm just really slack at taking photos and posting them on here, but I was so thrilled with these cushions that I made this weekend that I just had to put them on here.
Made these two on Friday night

And these 3 this morning

I also made myself an apron this afternoon but will try and get a photo of that tomorrow.

This is my early birthday present from MIL, she's been wanting to buy me one for ages now so when I found one on ebay the either day for a very reasonable price (brand new) I took her up on the offer.
I'm waiting for it to arrive now, should be tomorrow and when it does, this will be my first creation.
I have a another ball to attend late next month for hubby's work, the theme being "dead celebraties and rock stars" so I have decided to go as Audrey Hepburn from breakfast at Tiffany's, this was the closest pattern that I could find....... what do you think?

Hopefully it will turn out alright and I'll have some photos to put up.

Just an update

I wore my new top out to dinner the other night so got my lovely SIL (she's so lovely cause she babysat so I COULD go out) to take a photo before I left
Connor got hold of my scissors the other day and decided to cut Izy's hair, the damage was not major, half of one pigtail and just a small chunk out of the other, but now she has a definate sticky up bit when I pull her hair up.
And now I'm working on a few pairs of pj's for Connor, he has grown a bit since last winter and now all his jarmies are too short, will pop photos in when they are finished.

I've caught the sewing bug again YAY!!!

With the onset of the cold weather, the kids and I have been spending more time inside, so while the kids play inside games I have been able to get some more sewing done.
Sewing tally for this fortnight.
4 dresses for Izy
2 pairs of pants for Connor
2 pairs of pants for Izy
2 pairs of pj pants for Izy
1 pair of pj pants for connor
and shock horror...... a top for me!!!!

I haven't got a photo of my top yet, will add it as soon as I get one.

Izy's dresses
Connor's pants, this pair are greeny, brown and the other pair (not pictured) are black
Izy's pants, the other pair (again not pictured, are pink maple leaf camo print)
I still have to get pics of the pj's, but need to pick up some tops to applique first.
But not bad for 10 days of sewing I'd say.

A couple of things

Starting with a couple of my most recent sewing projects.
A little dress for Izy, I bought this cordouroy last year and made some little pants, and had enough left over to make this sweet little A-line dress, I think it will look so cute with a little skivvy and a pair of tights.
I promised my SIL I would make her a bag ages ago and have have only just gotten around to it.

I promise.
