Cute as a button… and curiousity killed the cat…

Well we had a lovely weekend away sewing, chatting, eating, cutting, sewing, laughing and have now returned to normal life. Kylie took her camera so will fill you in with some action shots soon. Among my projects I did make one very cute jacket for my little Abigail…


Notice her first pair of shoes (and the one missing sock! OOPS!)

We did a little photo shoot in the new indoor laundry, so we could share it with you…

It didn’t take me long to work out the new bench top is very handy for ironing the latest project on the go – notice the mini ironing board next to Abigail!



These photos were taken moments after discovering THIS…IMG_4872
Yes – that is what a BRAND NEW washing machine looks like when a 3 year old has filled it with powder, selected a program and pushed start. If he makes it to adulthood in one piece, he better use those mechanical skills and endless curiosity for good!!! I may not need washing powder for the next few washes… if it continues to work at all!!

Happy stitching and endless patience to you all!!!

Oh Ollie! Well, look at the bright side & see it as doing a favour for his future wife - getting him used to helping around the home.
Miss Abigail looks gorgeous in her new coat.

Oh doesn't she look adorable and she looks as though she loves her new wardrobe. You've done a fabulous job with the jacket!
Perhaps a lesson in how to do the laundry might help the wee man to assist you rather than wreck your appliances...never too young to learn I say, especially for the male of the species!

Sounds like Oliver is in good company with Oscar - although thankfully we have a top loading washing machine - they just love to be helpful. I love the jacket that you made it is gorgeous. Abigail is such a cute model!!

Your washing will be sparkling when it comes out.

Oh no Katherine.... I had a similar incident with a front loader once when on holidays and let me tell you, the bubbles seem to be never ending. I wondered how they could all fit in there. As I removed the bubbles there seemed to be more to take their place. Strange!!

Love the jacket too.
Good luck with the bubble removal.
