I love school holidays.....no getting the kids out of bed, out of the shower, out the door. Everyone can slip into their own little routine. They can wake up when they are ready and I CAN SEW ALL DAY if I want to. Justin's mum is staying with us at the moment and is an amazing knitter/sewer - an all round clever person when it comes to 'making.'
So for Wednesday Jude, myself and Rani all booked ourselves into a day of sewing on the verandah. It is the perfect location as it has huge tables and plenty of room to spread out and cut out, and pin together and what ever else needs doing on a 'SEWING DAY'.
Rani actually was still outside well into the evening as I think I 'kind of' dominated the sewing machine during the day. She chose a beautiful piece of fabric that I had stashed away in my fabric cupboard for about 15 years. I had bought it from an op shop just after she was born and it was perfect for a bag...
And here it is.....she is sooooo clever and extremely patient.....much more than I am when I am sewing.
I made my first skirt with a zip..........out of a sheet I picked up at the op shop.
and my first bunting......I was pretty happy with myself. I had fun shooting a 'bunting photo shoot'
Guess which one is my favourite....?
Have you dedicated a whole day to something lately?
Would love to hear from you ♥Jo
