On the Treadmill...

This has been a huge lack of crafting around these parts, i've been too busy labeling uniforms, meeting teachers & trying to remember gate codes, sports days, school hats & to slather the kids in sunscreen before we leave the house. So far I have remembered most things, due to a complicated series of lists, calenders & reminder systems. No doubt everything will fall in a heap by week 3 when I shall return to being completely disorganised & therefore the mother of the sunburnt kid at swimming without goggles.
Kinder Boy

It's been a big week with both kids starting kinder, an especially big milestone for Willow. So far everyone is happy & we are getting used to getting up & out of the house early, rather than slothing about. I am looking forward to the dust settling & having a bit of time to myself in the midst of all the drop-offs & pick ups. I have a list a mile long of things I want to do this year, hopefully some of it will pan out.

Princess Pillow

Here is the one thing I have managed to sew over the past week, a pillowslip for Willow to sleep on at kinder. She chose the fabric herself, originally to be made into a skirt, but I had other plans so it become a princess pillow. Yesterday is actually slept on it so I think it's a magic pillow!

Such sweet photos of your two wee ones. Love them. So cute.

That pillow is divine to the power of divine. I'd cat nap on that anyday.

Sounds like everyone is happy and going well so far. The pillow case looks great, I made a dress from the fabric but the pillow case is a really good idea. Enjoy your free time.:)

So I'd like to order two of those pillows then please and don't forget the magic sleep dust bit ok? Thanks! That fabric is very sweet and I think it's just a lovely mumma thing for you to think about her resting her little head on something you made for her ;)

Loving the thin lipped grin from the little bloke ;)

Is it any consolation that everything had fallen apart chez M&E by DAY three and we're straight back into the Flying By the Seat of Our Pants thing?
