I didn't want to use balloons this year as I am conscious of keeping this as un-disposable as possible, so I decided to make some flags to hang around the place.
I'm extremely grateful for this hand-me-down sewing machine from my lovely Mother in law, Christine, which is getting some good use - (even if it's operator is somewhat confused the majority of the time!)
Dadda has been trying his hand at a woodworking project! He is building a kitchen bench complete with sink and stove top with shelves underneath to store all her plates and utensils. He has also been 'tuttin tees' (cutting trees!) to make tree blocks which I have just finished sanding
A certain someone's quilt is now complete. I included her own artwork (batik inspired painted fabric) patches which have made it feel really personal and special.
Hopefuly her artwork detracts from Mama's amateur sewing skills!
I have lined it with 100% natural bamboo/wool batting:)
Her birthday angel is beginning to take form
One excited little girl! Aunty kirsty is over to help make some decorations:)

A gift for Kirsty:)
The beginning of some window hangings made of merino rainbow wool, some wool roving angels, stars, flowers, shells, gum nuts, and other bits and bobs. Aria loved doing this so much for Dadda's birthday, that I thought we would do it again for hers. It's hard to capture in a photograph, but the effect is quite magical and suits my little rainbow girl to a tee!
Somewhere amidst all this preparation and excitement I need to find some time to meditate and to sleep! Phew! My head is spinning with birthday songs and stories... Don't you just love birthdays? I do!
In love and light
