Nice frocks now in stock at ECLECTICA, 148 Pakington st Geelong West. On the hunt for a little more linen for the stash.

I made some clothes today! Yep, wearable, seams finished, can put on tomorrow real clothes. Clothes making is generally a pretty big event in this house firstly because my disproportionate body doesn't seem to fit into off the shelf type patterns and secondly because my pattern making skills are fairly negligent. But recently I found a pattern, likened it to a near $400 piece of clothing I had picked up and put back down in a shop not too far from me. Fabric cutting and a little elastic style tweaking followed and it was done! 4 more followed and now I may just have a little more stock for the next ARTEFACT market.

Double Doors

It's all getting a bit exciting here, according to the official sleep counter there are only 4 sleeps to go! Lucky we are going with the official counter because if we were playing by the rules of the Advent Calender there would only be 2 sleeps left?? I think there may have been a little double door opening yesterday ;) Also have a pile of solids on the sew table, triangles are calling my name.

The last order for Christmas has left the sewing table just in time for the end of the school year.
Most of the prezzies are wrapped and I'm planning on doing some fairly heavy calorie loaded baking over the next few days. Weeks ahead of not having to be anywhere at an set time. Hooray!

Last week I snuck into town before the Christmas shoppers really begin to multiply. Upstairs I spied a photo booth so I took the kidlets into town after school the next day for a "sitting" and discovered it was gone! Damn! So home we went for a little booth session of our own, the key was to wind them up as much as possible to get their silliness into full swing. Five minutes later it was done and I directed them to the trampoline to jump for a solid hour to sort out the mum induced silliness. So very happy with the results :)


I could possibly be converted to paper after spending some quality time perusing the work of jennifer collier. There are so many more images on her website I struggled to find a favorite.

The Plan

Kids are complaining about the lack of colour selection, may have to go to K-Mart and purchase them their own tree :D

Found the pressed tin stars that I purchased in Bali, now have to find the lights!
