That was the autumn break. Sixty-one millimetres of rain in 12 hours. It fills empty water tanks and the cracks in the ground, puts moisture in crop beds and waters those already sown, it lifts the spirits of the older generations and creates puddles for the younger ones. Oh dear, all of a sudden I fit in ‘the older generations’ class. Tomorrow I’m jumping in puddles. In pyjamas.
I also had a birthday this week, boosting my transition through the categories.
I don’t need to paste any more dimly lit photos of curly-haired girls blowing out candles on a chocolate cake. It gets hard to tell who was having the birthday.
We ate cake and it was good.
As if the rain (and the cake) wasn’t exciting enough, I’ve finished a new design. And as always, I make the prototypes in Elsie and/or Maeve’s sizes.
I’m launching these half-button shirts at The Square – Bendigo’s Handmade Market this coming Saturday, but if you just love the look of them and badly want one, I don’t blame you. You can pre-order one early this week for pick-up at The Square, or order any time for postal delivery after The Square. Unfortunately I won’t be able to post any out this week as I’m saving them all up for the launch! Pre-order yours now.
Don’t you think it goes well with my linen blend pants? Me too.
