Class kit - August

Here's my August class kit for Scrap with V. It was fishing themed so here's some photos of our houseboat holiday with friends about three years ago. Time flies...

For Ben's birthday..

I made this stand-up photo thingy using one of the Kaisercraft goodies in the hamper I won at the Scrap with V retreat. It features his two very-much loved pets - Fudge and Marshmellow. Cute names.

For a bit of fun...

And something different I joined in the cybercrop over at Chook Scraps. While I didn't have much time to chat, I did complete two challenges. This one was an Olympic challenge to use circles (or something similar like blossoms), something silver and an Olympic colour as the base colour.

And this challenge was to be inspired by this painting. Took some thinking...

Ekka Wednesday

We went to Queen's Park in Ipswich and had a great day exploring their nature park. Kaiden especially loved the reptiles - we saw lizards and snakes (behind glass thank goodness). His favourite word (and person) at the moment is "Daddy", closely followed by "Elmo" and then "big truck". He also loves say "apple" and "nana" and every dog is called "Harry".

Ottabre goodness!

I finally finished this pair of shorts for Kaiden using another pattern from my Ottabre magazine. Seemed like I unpicked every seam at some stage, don't know why the pattern was pretty straight forward! I'm pretty proud that this is the first item of clothing that I have machine-embroidered and it turned out really well. I also love the yoke, top-stitching and pockets. I have some more baby cord here so will get around to making another pair at some stage.

Puppy love

Just finished off this applique t for Kaiden. Luckily it's a size two as it seemed to take me ages to do. I think machine rather than hand sewing would definately be quicker.

Scrap with V Cybercrop

There's a cybercrop on this weekend over at Scrap with V. The theme is "Showtime" given that the Ekka is in town so here's a layout about our visit to Farmfest.
And one using a sketch which is a bit like a ferris wheel. This is about how much fun Jared and Kaiden have when the two get together.
