Getting in some sewing here and there

While I haven't been able to get a lot done sewing wise lately, I have found a little time for a couple of projects I've been meaning to get finished.As part of a long overdue thank you to Gail and her daughter for spoiling Romily with two sets of Dora the Explorer books (and some much-prized Band-Aids!!), I made Gail's daughter an apron, embroidered with the initial of her first name. Xena do you recognise the pocket and binding fabric? (From our birthday FQ swap). Romily was being quite a maniac while modelling it for me while I was trying to get a decent photo!The parcel also included one of my pincushions, an FQ with a print of the Australian wattle flower, as well as the Australian children's book classic Seven Little Australians, which Gail and her daughter are going to read together (just have the tissues handy!). I loved that book as a child. It was funny, sad and very memorable!

I also finished off the set of premmie tops I was making way back here. They're on their way to Darwin.
We've had a pretty enjoyable weekend. Went to the Canberra Yacht Club yesterday afternoon with some friends and their kids. It was great to see the posse of littlies band together and play together (mostly) nicely! Today I took the kids to Questacon, which Romily absolutely loves. She's pretty tired after all of that and is having a nice long sleep while I am writing this post. Tristan's asleep too - so nice to have a bit of time out!

Hi Lily, just wanted to say thank you sooooo much for the beautiful outfit for Owen and stickers for Thomas which arrived today - I've just put some pics up of Owen in his lovely new suit!
It would be lovely to meet up with you sometime - Tristan can teach Owen all his rolling tricks!

just wanted to be sure you were aware that 4sqs-5 signups were already posted.

I don't know which little girl looks cuter in that apron - yours or mine? Sweetie Pie is home sick today (again) and I just showed her these photos - her comment "oh she's a cute little girl!" Bet they'd get along very well with each other. Thanks again for the gifts Lily - I've finally got around to blogging about them.
