Christmas 2009

was pretty much one of the most (with the exception of 2 incidents) stress free
Christmases I can remember.
It consisted of, 3 santa parades, 1 santa photo sitting, numerous santa 'sightings'
3 Christmas lunches and a whole heap of toys.

lunch number 1. Jacob with Grammy (DH's mum)

Ebs with Grammy

me n Ebs with some yummy yummy yummy (ok freaking delish) christmas ice cream pudding made by DH's mum.. This pudding was published in the women's weekly in about 1979 and has been made every year since - I've only come to know it in the last 5 or so years!

Gav with the kids leaving out our home made and iced gingerbread bikkies..
me with the same!

yes yes.. another o+s sundress.. and a pair of
little explorer shorts which you can see better in the photo below...

delish rocky road ice cream pudding.. yum yum


pencil cases for the neices and nephew...
and a pair of shorts and two o+s popover sundresss with yo-yo flower broches
and Christmas is done :)

Hope yours was a good one!

poor neglected blog..

yes i know the last post was in October. Its been nearly 2 months. yes, I am slack, yes Mum, I will post some pics.. so here goes!

in no particular order

above is another o+s sundress made for Miss Eb's first birthday party.. i still can't believe my little girl has turned 1! time goes sooo quick! fabric was a recentish etsy purchase - cant remember the name but will find later on!

the beginnings of a shiner for miss Eb's courtesy of her big brother.. poor little thing looked like she had been in a bar fight!

a set of little explorer shorts for our friend Nathan who turned 3 at the end of November. Shirt was courtesy of best & less with a car sewn on it!

my little santas.. (who hate having their pic taken!!)

Jacob icing gingerbread bikkies.. yummo! hope to make this a 'regular' Christmas tradition! very very yummy!

another o+s sundress made for a friends cousin. This is take 2 as I stuffed up sooo badly on the buttonholes of take 1 - mental note that when you start getting tired, its a good time to turn OFF the sewing machine and go to bed.
