Warmth and Water

We're having some warm weather at last. Chloe has really been enjoying paddling. We are lucky to have a great, free, outdoor pool in our town. It's at Cataract Gorge and is next to a river surrounded by parkland and bushland. A lovely place to spend some time with the little one.
That is me pre-haircut. Thankfully it's much better now.

This is what we do on car free days. The pool is just a bit too far to walk to so we get the paddling pool out on the deck. And don't worry, we reuse all the water for our plants in the evening.

This is a belt I made for a friend. I'm really happy with how it turned out and luckily she likes it too. The fabric is from the American Jane Wee Play range and is one of my favourites.

I've been beavering away at the sewing machine with a bunch of orders today. It was very satisfying to get a big chunk of work done as I've been feeling pretty lethargic lately.

The belt is lovely - it looks great made up in that Wee Play fabric (I'm a big fan of the range).

Your pool model also looks rather cute in her top, which looks like one you made up last year?

Hi there Susie, Lovely to see Little Red Fish on your wee girl. The fabrics you use are great. Do you know www.thefabricfairy.com I have bought some lovely pieces from there.

This heat that's suddenly arrived can really sap the strength out of you, but the Gorge is such a lovely spot.

Chloe looks gorgeous in both her swimming outfits and the belt looks terrific.
