Long time no update...

I know, I know it has been ages (again) since I last updated. My only excuse is that I'm lazy! :)

Things are fine here. 

Stuwiggle is working as per usual (though he is working all weekend this weekend which is sucky) and spent the morning playing golf with a friend of ours (Mr Snakey).

Sebastian is growing up so quickly it is amazing to see. He is still just loving kindy and I think he is going to really be ready for, and enjoy school next year.

I have been studying my behind off at college/TAFE. I've had my first exam of the term on Thursday and there are many exams between now and the mid-year break.

I have been extremely slack with my letter writing, (just finding the time to sit down and write/type when I actually have a functioning brain is tricky at the moment), but rest assured that if I owe you a letter (especially you Sarah E from WI) it will be winging it's way to you as soon possible.

I have been doing other things (other than studying) too. I have gotten back into sewing after a rather extended break from it. 

I finally got around to finishing that long Victorian petticoat that has been in the works for nearly 6 months:

I found the hat stand was the *only* way to do the ruffles-pinned-to-main-skirt thing:


All pinned up and ready to sew...


Here it is completed and being modelled:



I also attacked a couple of old AIRTC (Airforce Cadets) shirts from my youth into a pair of *very* funky pants for Sebastian:

Here is me trying on one of the shirts - which fit me 10 years ago at age 15 and aside from the bountiful boobies, still fits me now!!!


So then I hacked into said shirts and managed to make these:

BACK


Here is Sebastian modelling them for me:




So there you go, a few pics to show you my recent sewing projects. 

Expect another post very with more photos because I am in that kind of mood.

Yay, it's great to see pics.

It's okay, I'm behind on correspondence too; I've had "Reply to Kathy" on my to-do list for so long, I think it's permanently etched there.
