No.2 requested a padded case to protect her new pride and joy - her camera. Well of course No.1 needed a case too for her ipod didn't she? So on Saturday evening I made a couple of little cases for them.
The fabrics and buttons were all carefully chosen by them the day before (from their own stashes), and the plans were accepted.
They turned out quite well I think. Now I need to make a camera case for my own camera. Luckily it's exactly the same as hers. Oh they still need to find suitable straps for their new cases. That means a trip to Spotlight. And a trip to Spotlight can only mean extra goodies will be bought!
Here is the tea towel bag I made as a sewing bag for the birthday girl. As you can see it doesn't get much simpler than this. I love this tea towel with the crochet trim and it looks so lovely all gathered under the handle.
No.2 was very delighted to see so many lovely birthday wishes especially for her from you lovelies. And thank you ladies so much for the comments regarding her new quilt as well. I know you know how long it took to make and just how much love and time was poured into making it. It's a huge relief to have it finished.
Now how about another little mini transformation? Oh great, I got the photos muddled up and you can see the after before the before, if you get what I mean!
Ah well, never mind. Nice and simple and so very easy to keep tidy and weed free. We really do have too much planted garden, so a few of these little patches will be so much easier to keep neat.
Have you seen these red pears before? Aren't they just beautiful? Of course I just had to buy a packet of them and they taste as good as they look. And cheap too, always a good thing!
Well hubby is back to work today, poor man. No.3 is back to kindy. Big girls off to swimming lessons this afternoon. It's the beginning of the new term for us unfortunately. No more swanning around until 9am in our pj's. Boo hoo!
But that doesn't mean an end to the renovations. Oh no, the man is on a mission to transform another part of the house now. Seems he's a bit sick of it looking grumpy too. Next to be done is our bedroom, ensuite, and the little girls rooms. Sounds large doesn't it? He's decided to get some help this time. Thank goodness I say. I only hope the tradesmen do a good enough job. I can see the red spot stickers on the imperfections already!!! Aaaarrrggghhh!!!!!!!!!!
