William decided the other day that he didn't want to wear anything else but his blue tractor top(yes! the one he is wearing in the previous post photos!) He wore it 3 days in a row. I had to make another so I could get this one in the wash. So I made this one!
Well, that created another uproar! He only wanted to wear the new one. So, despite it being almost black from dirt, he wore the new one for three days also. I have since made a dump truck tshirt also. It's in the wash!
I must add that William chose the colours

New things

We had an exciting long weekend here. We had Chocky the pony arrive on Sunday. William has been trying to ride the dog and the poor cats so we felt maybe we needed something a little more substantial!
He adored Chocky from the moment he saw him. He has a little ride every day and we feed him grass and brush him.
I found a little helmet for William. When we were in the shop he tried on 2 other ones, well we almost got them on his head. He refused to put them on. Then the shop lady got the old style white egg out and he wouldnt take it off! He wore it home and continued to wear it while playing in the sandpit.
And speaking of sandpits....Ben built a new one of those too! The old one was a tiny triangle of sand where a tree had been taken out for the new fence. As William was growing bigger there became less room for all the trucks and tractors to fit. So the new one was built!

Libby's Birthday Quilt

My sister is getting married again in March. Her partner has a daughter, my sister has a little boy. Blake got a quilt, my first one ever made, a couple of years ago. I wish i had a picture of it coz it was shocking! i had no idea what i was doing! But, Blake LOVED it because I had made it and because it was covered in fire trucks!
This one is for Libby. Her birthday was on Monday. I hope she likes it and gets it soon, as i had to express post it.

Sew Cute!

Emily from my mums group had her second baby last week. They called him Kace (a dutch name but changed the spelling). I made this cute little outfit for him. I love making those little bloomers. They are just so cute. I love the ruffly ones too.

I made these ones for Bella for christmas. She is also from my mums group.
They are so easy to make and so original. Love them!

Kate's purple quilt

Here it is! Ben's little sister Kate turned 11 at the end of December. I hurried to get it done as quick as possible, what with all the christmas stuff I decided to make as gifts, I didn't leave myself much time.
Her bedroom is white with a pastel purple feature wall and all white furniture so the only choice was purple and white! She loved it, I love it, we all love it!
I think I will make more of them. I love the coloured squares with white sashes. Yes I will make more!

Crazy times!

It has been crazy here, but that's probably the same for every one else! Ben's been building more paddocks and I've been madly trying to finish Kate's purple birthday quilt. I did a heap yesterday and only have one side left to sew the binding down. I'm pretty happy with it. A photo later.
I finished the Guinea Fowl Quilt for little Matthew. Ben's cousins Kaz and Craig love guinea fowl so it was only fitting. They loved it too! good oh!
