Sewing again

Yes I'm at it again.

Chicken just keeps getting taller, so rather than buy new clothes all the time, I stole one of her really cute dresses which is getting waaaay too short and made it longer.

I started with a dress and an old singlet
I chopped the top off the dress, and trimmed a little off the bottom of the singlet. I cut the top of the dress up to make some cute frills, sewed it all together and...
TA DA!!!!

The dress is now a few inches longer, hopefully it'll fit okay. I really should measure her before she goes to bed. Oh well.

What a Weekend

Okay so yesterday was Mum's 50th birthday, today was Chicken's 2nd birthday and tomorrow is W@dsy and my 7th wedding anniversary.

Yesterday we helped prepping for Mum's party, I made Mum's cake and Chicken's cake, and then actually went to the party.
Here is my beautiful Mum

Here is my beautiful daughter 
(Yes I'm pretty sure the women in my family are genetically incapable of smiling for a camera with our eyes open)

Gremlin eating a cupcake

I only made the big cupcake, I cheated and we bought the little ones.

Chicken loves pigs lately, I think it's because they are pink.

To make our lives a little easier we just whipped out the "Oinky" cake at church, she's still a little young to understand about birthday parties yet. I presented Chicken with the doll I made. Then I went to a Tupperware party in the afternoon with Chicken, she was very popular being the only child there and being awfully cute. Then to Mum's again to eat mountains of leftovers from the party. Now home, waiting for the sugar rush of the past couple of days to subside so I can sleep.

W@dsy and I might take tomorrow easy, and watch a DVD, I'm thinking "The Seven Year Itch" with Marilyn Monroe....
