My sister's wedding

Well after all of the long distance planning and stress regarding the flower girl dress, the wedding went off without a hitch.

Poor little Ellyse has been dragged from pilar to post for the last 2 weeks, sleeping in all different places, meeting lots of new people and being babysat a lot. I cannot believe how well she coped and was just a star at the wedding. The only little hiccup was the olive green tupperware container that doubled as the bouquet. She just wouldn't let it go eventhough the grapes were finished! It was cute though, and something everyone will remember.

I was so pleased with the decision for K's sister to take her for the evening. It was great for her to leave at 5 and for K and I to enjoy the night.

My sister looked just beautiful, the whole look of the wedding was jut perfect.

Enjoy the photos.

Ellyse is going to be a .......

...and a very proud one at that.

So here is my reason (I hope) for my lack of mojo in the sewing department. I have been extremely tired and have been taking every oportunity to sleep when Ellyse sleeps.

I am 10 weeks pregnant and due on the 13th (Friday) July. I was 10 days over with Ellyse so it will be interesting to see what happens this time.

We are very excited!

Ellyse's Christams dress

Sorry about the quality of the photo, it was taken onmy video camera as DH left the digi at work (grrr) oh well it is their camera and he does need it for work. We really should buy our own!

I am happy with this little dress, it has come out just as I pictured it. I wan't to add something gold along the front of it to jazz it up a little. Ellyse was too busy dancing here to turn around.

We got

Please excuse Ellyse's smile at the moment, she just loves playing it up to the camera. I am hoping to tone it down a little before the wedding!

Ella's Christmas Dress

Here is the Christmas dress I made for my friend's daughter. It was made from a vintage pattern that I had thrifted a while ago. It is a size three so way too big for Ellyse but Ella is a bit bigger so it may be ok on her.
This is the pattern I wanted to use for Ellyse's dress also but I think I will play around with the pattern a little before I do hers. The top part of the dress is great, I just might make it longer and not so wide.
Ella's mum was happy with it which is great.
