Crazy op shop fabric

I'm still not sure about this fabric, it gives me flash backs of happy pants!!

It was $2.50 for 2 mtrs and there were 2 lots so I had 4 mtrs to put to jimjam use.. I used one of my mums old long sleeve T's as the ribbing, her tops are usually still in great nick to re-use into other stuff..

I have made another two pairs for some other little fellas that are the same age as Quinn.. :)

So what horrible flash backs do you get when you look at this fabric..? haha

Cute pinni and pants!!

I think they are cute anyhoo.. I am a really bad photographer but thats ok I sew not take photos for hobby.. haha thank goodness!!
This is out of another Ottobre magazine, 1/08 I think.
I love the way they turned out although I really have to learn to read the destructions because I seem to get ahead of myself and miss important steps..LOL never mind only a little bit of unpicking.
While I was outside taking really bad shots I had a baby magpie come and say hello, there is a mum and two babies that come in everyday to see if there is any cat food left in the bowl but since Obar the staffy figured out he could jump onto the table the cat is lucky to even get some..poor Mishka!!
here is a cute pic of baby maggie...

And here is a really bad pic of a really cute outfit...

Maybe I need to ask santa for a new camera!!

Owl Softie

I have finally made a softie, I had drawn up ideas months ago but hadn't found the motivation to make one until now..
So instead of doing house work and while Quinn duded about NOT sleeping I managed to get this done.. I think I need to put more stuffing in tho!!

Grumpy hour!

Arrggg I hope Mr 2 stays down for a snooze today, he has grumpy hours, usually 1pm, 3pm and 5pm since he has started to cut out day sleeps.
I have managed to convince him to go to bed for awhile but I am waiting for the foot steps to tell me I was kidding my self!
I cant go out the front and weed my garden because I don't have a fence to keep the child in and I have a busy road and a reservoir across from us. My front yard looks like a botanical garden of weeds and my roses are shriveled it is depressing.. I need a week of day sleeps from Quinn so I can weed the front and clean the house with out the whirlwind affect behind me. I have forgotten what it is like to clean something and for it to stay like that for a wee come the footsteps.. bye blogger off to amuse the gorgeous tired tanty 2 year old..
here is a pic of my fenceless yard and dry as a bone drought flavoured garden..

Girly Skulls :)

I love pink and black together on girls, I have wanted to make this for awhile but haven't because I don't have a little, little girl, Taegan is growing out of the cutesy sizes.. But one of Dons friends is in love with the skull knit and has been asking me to make something for his little girl for months, so I hope he likes it!!
I managed to find a stray battery lying around to swap with one in the camera, I managed to get 2 extra pics..LOL yes people I still haven't got batteries..I cant even manage to get everything that I put on a shopping list let alone remember to put things on the darn list!!

This is another little Ottobre dress, I am feeling depressed that I haven't been able to update my subscription due to lack of fundage!! :(

I have made some stuff in the last few months, just not much, in between kids, life and sewing machines that are having emotional breakdowns!!grrr

Summer JimJams for the chidlets.. :)

A pair of Otto pants for Taegans half sisters birthday... I think these are really cute!
Front view...
Back view...
I finally finished Daisy's(Taegan's cousin) little Otto outfit.
Quinn before he had a hair cut looks so pretty as a model.. haha Don didn't think so, he made him a sign.. :p

Taegan got a pettiskirt as part of her birthday present, she also got her ears pierced, she has been asking me for years and I finally agreed.. :o
Some little Otto shorts, these are a great little pattern and look cute as on, I think Quinn will be getting more of these for summer.. :)

October already!

Wow time flies... It has been 2 months since my last blog.. maybe I should change the name of my blog from stuff doer to slack blogger..!

The kids and dog have grown heaps, I need to buy Obar a new collar he has filled out so much the little boof, he is nearly 5 months old.

Quinn had an accident with his sisters bedroom door and nearly lost the end of his finger..ewww
And I have been doing stuff and have pics to prove it, some arent so good because I have ran out of batteries and had to use my phone.
I will make aother post with some sewing stuff I have been doing..
