Here are some of the things we’ve been enjoying this week:
I sewed like there was no tomorrow and sent all of my stock to Melbourne. It’s going to be for sale at Westfield Doncaster at the Yellow Brick Road Market Pop Up Shop from Monday 20 til Sunday 26 August. That’s cool.
I love it when happy customers send me photos of my products in action. Check out this gorgeous baby in her new dress:
Another customer wanted a pair of beach pants in cheesecloth. I made Elsie a pair first to see how they’d go. Good, I think.
Elsie took Lambie to kinder for show and tell. Lambie had a new hand-me-down dress that Nanna made for Elsie when she was a baby. Here they are both wearing it (Elsie at 8 weeks and Lambie at 5 grubby years):
In the supermarket this week, Elsie put three apples in a bag and wanted to weigh them. They weighed 600 grams. So did she when she was born. I made her stand there holding the apples while I took a photo.
Sorry, Elsie. I won’t make you do that again with mince. Or butter. Or anything else. I just thought it was cool that you weighed the same as three apples.
We also made some necklaces using polymer clay, rolling and baking and threading.
We painted nails. Some of us have to paint our own.
And cut out their own pictures.
And pick their own oranges.
