It's been busy....

So I finished up work and have had my first holiday in a long time. OK, no holiday, that got cancelled as the broke feeling was coming along....

Murray had a birthday, turning 4! He got a bath for his b'day, and loved rolling in the
 forest in the backyard!
He got a chop toy which he's loving.


We got a Xmas pic (I have to re-scan the Santa photo)


And he grudgingly gave us a Xmas pic.


Xmas Eve saw the girl calling the reindeer's...


and Xmas morning saw the benefits of that! Santa arrived!


with a stash of Littlest Pet Shops and Zhu Zhu pets.


I thought longer term- and the fact I was sharing my baby! And teaching my Little Miss some skills seemed like a good idea at the time. Might not be very cool in the playground, but luckily we don't care what they think.....


So today we sat down and had a lesson in threading...


and of course had to sit together while we did it...


I was in charge of the rotary cutter, she was in charge of fabric and stylin'.


And she turned out some pretty impressive drawstring bags! There will be some hand stitching on the little darker squares.


Perfect for storage for all the Littlest Pet Shops she's acquiring.


Yep, styled all by her!


The first of many adventures!

Hope everyone had an awesome Christmas and best wishes for 2012.

Happy Christmas to you and your lovely girl. She looks delighted with her day, and should be proud of her first project.

wow Bec such a clever little sewer in the making you have, your little treasure is so clever. Please don't apologise for adding to the whinging on my post about xmas
the more the merrier.
I just find so many perfect posts about perfect presents and perfect baking and that's wonderful if you are into it but I just am not anymore I haven't been for quite a few years and felt I really had to say so. In all honesty if I was about to start my family now I wouldn't start having xmas, once you start with the kids it's then so hard to stop. Lovely gingerbread house too, fab gift, I can't get enoough of that gingerbread taste that's been one good bonus about this time of year. I think depression really is added to with xmas, and for me it's a feeling of an anti climax that does it, I know a lot of people have that 'cos there is so much false hope put on this one day that will be "perfect" it's total bullshit xxxx
