    @thejennigirl I had no idea it took so long to have a vaccination for rabies. We don’t have rabies in Australia (thankfully). It would have been very scary indeed! My Aunty had her eye ripped out when a small child by a dog that lived next door to them. It was discovered that the children walking to school would tease it. She went to play with…[Read more]

    @thejennigirl How lovely you are.
    As a girl I was very tiny but full busted and it was hard to find nice clothes.
    You are correct, my Twins are quite a different size. They have full derrieres but are very small chested. They ‘out grew’ O+S pattern before they ‘grew out’ of the size range, IYKWIM?

    May I suggest the Liesl+Co Bento tee? I made the…[Read more]

    @thejennigirl I can definitely relate to this. My eldest is only thirteen and busting out like you wouldn’t believe! She even notices the size! But then she has it in her genes poor girl with two busty grandmothers, who can compete? Think of it this way, at least your daughter will have no need to get an enhancement in this area because she’s been…[Read more]

    @thejennigirl What nightie pattern did you use? I’m going to make the big girl a summer nightie. Her winter one is a simplicity one I think. I was thinking of using the badminton dress without the scallops.

    I have a playtime dress which just needs button holes and then the top fastening onto the bottom. I should just crack on with it…[Read more]

    @thejennigirl, I replied over in Current Affairs 🙂

    @justsewit this one http://www.lekala.co/catalog/skirts/pattern/5093#model

    There is not a lot of hand holding with this company though. My Twins love the style but I have to concentrate and do a lot of googling to figure things out.

    Enjoy your daughter liking pink, that will likely fade out…[Read more]

    I hope Murray continues to heal @justsewit

    @thejennigirl (moving the conversation over here) my husband was really excited to see a seed&super unit (farm equipment) for sale online, for a really good price, think $10,000 under what it should be. He spent the day ringing the listed number to finally contact the exasperated vendor. The listing was…[Read more]

    Oh no @thejennigirl, it is funny to read but not so funny to deal with, I am sure.

    I finished a hooded top for my daughter and now I am on to a denim skirt.

    My baby girl loves the outside so I am not getting as much sewing done, my garden looks lovely though 😉

    @thejennigirl how did the costume go?

    I have almost finished the culottes. i have had many interruptions and disruptions that have put the sewing on the back burner. I just have the waistband facings to stitch down and they’re done.

  • Ah yes! For Easter, I’m also planning a Sketchbook shirt, Art Museum vest and maybe pants for DS — like yours, @thejennigirl, he will tolerate handmade if it is for dressy occasions or uniforms — not “everyday” where his judgement would be called into question! Ah tweens… he’ll be growing out of o+S sizes soon anyhow! Except this will do…[Read more]

    @thejennigirl I’m really sorry to hear your news, I hope the trip goes as well as it can.

    @justsewit Really pleased that the settling in is going well, that must be a great weight of your mind.

    I have taken the epic step of leaving my job without another one to go to. This is the ‘first day of the rest of my life’ as my good friend says. Bit…[Read more]

    @thejennigirl I am sorry you have to experience this with your grandfather. You are in my thoughts as you endure this difficult time.
