She has been asking for her own library bag for AGES. And I finally finished this for her. It's ok. Not my favourite. But considering it has been a while and I am a bit rusty, well... its ok.
What I really missed was having an excuse to take HEAPS of photos of the girls. It really is amazing how many photos of the girls I take while I blog compared with no-blogging! This summer I am looking forward to adding to the catalogue of blogged photos :)
It will also be nice to have some more shots of Lucia. Now that Saskia is at school I get the feeling that my day at home on Fridays will be my making days with Lucia as my little off sider. Consequently she will be around to do some serious modelling for me! Although looking back on some older posts, methinks Saskia got her fair share of modelling in!
I also haven't bought any new fabric for so long... Lucia chose Aneela Hooey's Little Apples range for the appliqués - not even sure you can still get this, but really lovely... Lucia has good taste.
And I stitched down some ribbon bought from Ribbons Galore for the "L" to sit on. I am not rapt with the end result - a bit too much - looks like someone hasn't crafted for a long time and tried to throw everything at it! No restraint Lexie.
Anyways, there you go. New post almost done and dusted. How easy it is to settle back into the blog typing mode. You would think I have lots to share following my blogging hiatus, and yes I probably do. But for now, I am still a working mum and my bed is calling... I am hoping to begin sharing what I am up to, what I am making and what we are doing regularly again.
So feel free to stop by and check in every once and a while... x
