Why do I look so excited?
a) Because I just LOVE moving house? (look at those boxes and all that clutter that has invaded my sewing space!!) so many more boxes to fill!
b) I am so patriotic, that Australia Day has me singing 'God Save the Queen' all day?
c) Kevin Rudd wants to say 'sorry' to The Stolen Generation?
d) I am about to pick up my FIRST ever car?
It's taken me a really, bloody long time, but finally a car of my own ..... I can't help feeling this photo really should have been taken 22 years ago - but better late than never. I'm very excited about my VW Polo - and it's great to drive, although Big D just sits very quietly next to me, looking terrified, knuckles turning white on the dash board!

Christmas all done and dusted, New Year seen in and Little P has a new found respect for the man in red, he delivered: A talking Lola doll, squeeze her hands and she ooozes cuteness - not really hand made, but bought in a small shop, and not made in a sweat shop - so I bent the rules there. The hand made Christmas was great, it all seemed a bit more heart felt some how. Should be easier next year with more preparation. Oh and I got a Merrameko bag and a "poketo" T shirt from Robio
A new year, a new routine, Little P is going to pre-school 3 days a week this year, so I want (no need) to make her some little dresses that cover her shoulders, but still look Summery, here is the sample, this one is just made with a cotton print that was on spesh at Spotlight, no point getting paint all over the ritzy stuff! Think I'll make the V at the front slightly longer and maybe do some contrasting tiers for the others. I'll have a little bit of extra time for making stuff this year, in theory that's how it goes in my head any way! Will see .....
