Tiptoeing in the Tulips!

Yesterday i took the girls up to the "kids day" at the Tesslar Tulip Festival. We have gone the past few years and always had a ball! I dont think that anything could have prepared us for the amount of people there this year - the word seems to be spreading about what a fantastic family day out it is! The weather was just gorgeous, and a fun day was had by all. Here are a few pics - take note of the gorgeous face painting! We had to wait in line for an hour and a half to get this done, girls loved it but boy that was a LONG wait!

Another highlight of the day was "bumping" in Karen who recognised me (well my daughter actually :-)) at the tulip farm - was really nice to "meet" you, thanks for saying hi!

A simple little popover sundress...

I made this dress for Eleisha this afternoon, its a Oliver + S pattern (free too!) and its called the popover sundress! Its so simple to make, and looks pretty cute on i think! Eleisha has a really bad cold/cough etc at the moment so she was not very co-operative when it came to smiling or letting me take her pic but here are a few snaps of the dress after she tried it on!

Can not wait to get started on some of the projects!! I am just about to place an etsy order for some new fabric to go along with these new projects!

Look forward to seeing what everyone else is making as the christmas season approaches!

Snow fun!

On friday we headed up to Mt Buller for some fun in the snow!! This was the first time we had ever taken the girls to the snow, and they were sooo excited!! We had the BEST family day that we had in a long time and we all came away with huge smiles on our faces!! Best of all it snowed on us nearly all afternoon which was exciting for all members of the family!!!

Here are some photos of our day
