It's no wonder i woke up with a headache, they did sleep. But with all the milk in Canberra being drunk in my kitchen last night, i had to go out to get milk!! So i piled 5 children into the car & headed out to our local shopping centre, which is actually 4 shopping centres all in a row. Easy, park in one spot & go for a walk. $180 in fuel, what a bummer, could have been a nice pair of shoes. Then equal amount spent on Tony Ferguson shakes & fibre; a book binding machine; dog food; BBQ chicken & fresh bread rolls; oh & 12L of milk. Least exciting shopping i've done in a long time. I did let them loose in 2 small play areas to burn some energy off, while i gathered my thoughts, shopping bags & nursed my head.
I had it buzzing in my mind that our lovely guest had never had a handmade dress, even with big sisters & considering her Mum is doing her law masters, didn't think she'd be venturing into learning how to sew, anytime soon. So i asked our guest which fabrics she liked (nice taste, i was impressed) & she definitely wanted all blue. Da dah - Joel, Anna Maria & Amy mixed up into this dress, detailed with vintage spot bias on the capped sleeves & diagonal stripe bias across the bottom. She is really happy, even posed for photos & i'm thrilled, she hasn't taken off the dress since!!
So as The Big Day Out (in my car & home) fades away, i can get some serious sewing done & cruise into our last weekend before school resumes. Love Posie
