Post-Christmas posting

It's been quiet here - well here on the blog anyway - at home it's been the complete opposite!

I've done a bunch of sewing in among the usual Christmas/end of year stuff; catching up with friends, kinder concerts/exhibitions, family visits, shopping, wrapping, returning for the things I forgot, a big lunch followed by a day of recovery and of course there was a little sleeping...

I won't bore you with all the details, suffice to say we had a really lovely Christmas Day; relaxed, fun and very festive, with lots of smiling faces.

I'll be back soon with details of what I have been sewing, but here's a little peek!



 Yep, metres and metres of ruffles!


I didn't get a great pic of all three girls wearing these (there's a purple one as well) so plan to do that, but they looked like the cutest bunch of fairy floss you've ever seen on Christmas Day.

The reason I didn't get a great pic is they spent the entire day changing from these, to Disney fairy dresses they were given or into their Willow and Moo rainbow skirts!
All at different times of course.
Thank goodness for older cousins who were happy to assist with the changes, or that is all I would have done all day.

I hope your days have been merry and bright.

All merry and bright here, thanks, and glad it was the same over at yours!

You are the ruffle-foot QUEEN!!!!! I'm impressed. Seriously.

I have so much admiration right for you, three of these! I don't even know if I own a ruffler foot, I don't think so, I wonder if I can get one? I would be able to get the right material when I go to Sydney next year, no hope here. They are so beautiful, and you are so special to make these for your girls :)
