Here's a little pair of shorts I made for Lizzie. Not hugely exciting, but pretty and almost the same blue as her eyes. I bought a bag of fabric scraps at a local op shop - and it was the only thing I could make with that amount of material.
Excuse the mess in the play room. We're so lucky to have this space for them, and they do love to spend as much time as possible in there.

A. Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves.
B. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed.
C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog...
1 I failed year 8 Textiles!! Mainly due to the fact that I neglected to hand my applique project in. I was quite studious and considered sewing to be quite trivial compared to Maths, Science, etc. How times change!
2 My dad and one of his sisters are fraternal twins.
4 My mum and dad still live in the house where I grew up - but not for long. They're currently building a new single storey home, more suited to doddery old senior cits (ie. no stairs)
5 I taught at School of the Air in Port Augusta for my first year of teaching
6 I am terribly short sighted. -8 in both eyes. But I wear contacts because I'm really really vain.
7 I dropped Art in year 8 when we had to choose between that subject and French, and I've never done any Art studies since, something I regret.
8 I studied French to Year 12, but have never been to a French speaking country. One day...
Looks like we've run out of tag-ees!

Here's a very sweet looking Louisa. People have been saying lately how much alike we are - I wish!

I'm also happy to use some of this knit fabric I've had for ages (3 and a half metres in fact!). I thinking of making some leggings to go with it. Louisa has also put in a request for gathered pockets on the next dress, so looks like I'll be making another one.
