Here's some more photos from our adventure at Seaworld.

Papercraft #20

Papercraft #19 is MIA as it's for the April Scrap with V kit. Perfect if you have a little boy. Will show you once it is ready to go on sale. In the meantime, here's one of Kaiden with his walker.

Papercraft #22

This kit is now available with full instructions from Scrap with V. Had lots of fun doing it with this photos (although not perfect photos they encapsulate the fun just look at his face). And those pants - I hope his Mum uses OMO.

Plus there's a bonus card to make as well!

Seaworld


On Friday we went to Seaworld with some friends. We had a great time (although got a bit wet) and there was certainly lots of pointing. Kaiden got to meet Elmo close-up and even gave him a little wave. Will be back with more photos.

Easter


Sorry these posts are out of date order and it's a bit of a catch-up time. At Easter we went camping, Harry included, down at Flanaghan's Reserve near Rathdowney. We had a great time with some swimming, playing in the dirt (Kaiden) and lots of eating. Kaiden had his first taste of chocolate and loved it with a Rocky Road Easter egg made by his Nana and marshmellow bunnies made by his Daddy.

Sewing #6


Not the best photo, but this is the softie I rejected for the Softie swap I'm part of on the forum Essential Baby. I'm making a softie for a lady with two children, a boy and a girl. I tried this softie pattern called "Mad Dog" (because the dog has a scar instead of one eye, and big teeth!). I didn't like how the ears turned out so I'm going to put it away to give to Kaiden at Christmas. I've made something else but won't share yet until the swap is completed.

Steam train Sunday

The other Sunday we went on a steam train ride from Roma Street Station to Pikenba. All the carriages were the old style and Kaiden got to go to the engine room as well as look outside at all the scenery as we passed through tunnels and around the racecourse. It was a great morning out! Highly recommended and it's on the first Sunday of every month. Here's some photos:

Sewing #3, #4, #5

Applique, just love it, easy to do and makes a simple shirt look unique. Here's a couple I've made as presents:
Cupcake

Little birdy

And one for Kaiden:

Quick update

Still lots of photos to load on...plus I have made three softies plus nearly finished two scrap pages so I better get onto that.....
But the big question is where is my baby going?
Kaiden is walking confidently (except when he still decides it is still quicker to crawl), nearly needs a hair cut, says words like "garden" and "light", knows EXACTLY what he wants like the cake on the bench or the fridge to stay open, or to keep his fingers in the pantry PLUS today at daycare the carers asked Brett if it was OK to start trying his naps on the mat as soon he will be moving up to the toddler room. WHAT? No more baby room for him soon. He will just love that being with the big kids. AND in swimming he is diving under the water and will soon start lessons in the pool by himself (with Daddy on the side). He is growing up too quickly. Soon it will be driving lessons and nights out with his friends.

Sewing #2


Time to catch-up on my sewing projects and see where I'm at because indeed I have been trying to do a stitch or two. Here's the britches pattern again except I put pockets on the side inside instead of the back and increased the rise and waist to accommodate a cloth bum.
