Mind you, in 44 degree celcius heat, there is little you can do with three small children but barricade yourself into your home and stay cool.
Things have been a little slow on the sewing front too, only one little backpack to show so far, apart from the things my niece and I made - but I can't really take credit for those as she did most of the work.
So what have we been doing...
we took my gorgeous niece to the airport and said goodbye to her - always a fun outing in itself (and yes one of my children did go dressed as 'Dorothy'!)
I didn't get a great pic but here's the huge bag we made for all the extra stuff she had to get home.
It was 'plumped up' with pellon and has two internal pockets and a key hook inside, and a pocket with snaps outside as well as snaps along the top.
We used Milly's fabulous bag tutorial for the basic bag and just added the extras.
Then we made a matching mobile/iPod cover and made her a luggage tag to match as well just for fun.
We've been playing with hair styles
there's been lots of dancing on the deck in suitable attire (bee gumboots go with everything don't they??)
There was a little shopping for shoes ready for kinder girls and I got a couple of new pair that suit my current lifestyle.
Oh and I managed to corrupt another niece into the joys of sewing!
Life is returning to normal so I hope to be back soon with the backpack, I still have another three of them to make so get ready for it!
