While there has been a lot of sewing there has been some ‘not quite rights’ of late. Things not quite fitting, blah – blah – blah. Here are a few things that have passed.

beach 053 This is the hat from Pip’s book, while it didn’t fit Caleb it is a very cute addition to the present pile.

beach 058 I adapted a long sleeve pattern to make this circle yoke top, the arm holes are pretty airy but I am happy to ignore that. The Heather ross was a donation from the lovely Kate. beach 054beach 056

Shark on your ass swimmers and white binding at legs. The camo material was from Melanie (thanks very much!).

I was really happy with this dress from a few creative spaces ago, the pics aren’t the best, temperamental model! I am working on a pink version (as requested by temperamental model)

The lead up to Christmas is feeling a little daunting, but I am trying to ignore it and keep ploughing through my handmade gifty list. (Note to anyone planning children – don’t have them the week before Christmas!) I am thinking a little cookie baking from Windsor Deli (her choc chip cookie is being modelled by Caleb at the beach). Have you checked out her blog - lots of cute recipes and I really love “the cook and the chef” using in season ingredients that she is doing in conjunction with Mish.beach 047

Next up some placemats for the inlaws. Congrats if you actually made it this far!

LOVE the Shark your ass shorts! Only problem if Liam had them, he'd spend all day chasing his tail and looking ridiculous while trying to look at the shark... he is a strange boy! That dress is beautiful too, even if the model wasn't so obliging for photos.

"Bend over so mummy can take your picture!!" He he he!!!

Heaps of cute sewing going on! I love the dress on temperamental model, would love one for myself!

It looks like you have taken a giant cookie wearing swim gear to the beach! Something tells me your 'NQRs' would be my version of shouting from the rooftops with glee!
