Walking the dog........

is not always a good idea when the dog is covered in mulberry juice, people tend to cross the road in order to avoid what looks like a blood covered dog.

A Surprise Visit.....

Here I am back in Noosa! My poor dad had complications during an operation stemming from his bowel cancer so I flew over to visit & help where I could.


Whilst here my mother & I have been sewing away madly (a good distraction!) & we decided to do one more market while I was in town. We met some lovely new customers & then a gorgeous little girl walked over wearing a dress that I had made 2years ago, it looked just as good as when I first sewed it up however it was now being worn as a top with capri pants. Her lovely mummy has been a wonderful supportive customer of ours for 3 years it really lifted our spirits.

  Indi was kind enough to model some dresses that we made & I think she looks just adorable!
Thankyou Arana, Shane & Indi xx

A Superhero Turns 5......

A couple of weeks ago Eldest Sprout turned 5 & asked for a superhero themed party. I was over the moon & had visions of all sorts of goodies that I could make, firstly being superhero dolls for all guests until he informed me that these weren't cool for 5yr old's...I did make one for the table though!

He was quick to let me know only 3 things were very important to him....
1. Jelly which I made in jars in layers of red,yellow & blue

2. Macaroni & Cheese popped into some individual serves

 3. Ham & Cheese sambo's which I used a star cookie cutter to jazz them up a bit.

I made photo props out of cardboard & covered some boxes with paper for a city. The children flew through the air after changing into their capes & masks (which I was allowed to make!)  next to the telephone booth.

An afternoon of silly string & digital camera's (a bargain at $5 each from KMart) & the kids were in heaven.

An Easter Buffet....

I loved this cute mini buffet we styled for Easter. No chocolate was needed just take home sweets for the children & some brunch items for the adults was requested............

Noodle Boxes for taking home sweets.

Homemade Jams & Marmalades

Winter 2012.......

The 2 sprouts are in their pool & I am sitting in the shade of the mulberry tree mixing & matching some gorgeous fabrics that have arrived for the Winter 2012 range. I am really looking forward to bringing out a new range after having taking a break last season... my sewjo is back!
