Well it only comes around every four years, so it's worth a post don't you think? Haven't posted for a while...have been feeling wrung out this week. Have had a long, hard week at work, so am very pleased the weekend is here.
We had a really busy weekend last weekend. First up was a pirate-themed birthday party for the three-year old daughter of one of my friends. I made Romily's first dress-up outfit - she loved it!
I also made part of Charlotte's birthday present - my take on the pencil roll. But with wind-up crayons instead. I had to rescue it from one of the other party guests - who took quite a liking to it and tucked it under his arm, ready to abscond!
The party was lots of fun and all the kids particularly enjoyed the treasure hunt.
Later that day we took Romily to the Canberra Show, where she enjoyed checking out all the animals, received her first showbag and had her first go on one of the rides!

We've been having some amazing weather to go with the seasonal shift - spotting these two amazing sights out of our windows during this past week:
