t'was the night before christmas

Whilst blog surfing tonight i came apon this blog and this poem.
i thought it was great and wanted to share

Abyquilt: "Twas the night before Christmas, I'm glued to the tree.
I'm wondering what Santa brought just for me.
Could it be fat quarters or a pattern or lace?
Or a quilt kit, I said, with a smile on my face.
And that's when I heard him,
'Hi Santa,' I said
'You know....good little girls should be in their beds '.
'I know I should Santa, and now I've got caught.
But I was just so excited to see what you brought
'Well, let's take a look in this room where you work.'
He shook his head quickly, And left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim as he put it in gear.
'You've got enough stuff, I'll see you next year!'

I think this is called Cheating

We have our play group christmas party on tuesday and we wanted a Santa who our kids wouldnt recognise.

That was easier said than done.

so we decided that we could get one of the Nanna's to help and tell them that Santa had asked her to help out.

Well we got lucky and Nanny Chrissie has a friend on holidays from America so now we have a Santa and a Santa's helper.

For Nanny Chrissie i got a panel from spotlight that has a ready to cut and sew apron on it.

No fuss just cut and sew.

there is STILL a few things i would have done different, like not trust my overlocker and used pinking shears but here it is.

sleep overs

Byron has a sleep over tonight and has to take a sleeping bag.
he has a couple including a fairly new croc hunter one that i was all set to make a bag for (i bought it on sale as it was missing it's bag)

So in my mind i was making a camo cover this was until he decided he wanted to take the old sleeping bag, this i am sure has a bag but as i was prepared to sew i didnt argue that he had LOOKED properly hehe.

so we now have a tartan sleeping bag cover with a few spots you shouldnt look at due to the math needed to get measurements correct haha

where oh where is 2009.

it seemed to rush past me in about june and i can't catch up.well obviously it has been a while and i wont bore yuo with those mundane day to day details.
i will however share some sewing i have recently done.
i have been sewing but not blogging.
skirts are currently the flavour as the weather warms up.
Ainsley will never run out of skirts or dresses i can assure you of that but as they are fun to make i will continue to make them lol.
My princess will only wear skirts that twirl so the latest addition is the circular skirt---fantastic twirl ability.
Ainsley has decided to share the twirling "need" with her twin friends so i made them a skirt each and had a request for another one.
here are some pics.

Ainsley's christmas skirt for her daycare party tomorrow is also there, i had a t shirt from last year that will still fit so i just added a little bling to make it go with the skirt a bit better.

so you think they will be ok?
