This is only the second time that we have had such young children, the last time was 5 years ago and it was a disaster.Yuong Ho was here for SIX WEEKS and cried the whole time she was only 8.
Hong is 12 and cried a bit in the first few days but has been fine ever since. I couldn't imagine sending my children away so young. We are all learning a lot about different cultures any-way. This is a bag I have made Hong to take home. I love the print of this and bought a bit of it so I have it on hand to make more bags for our Japanese visitors as well. I am filling it with different things from Australia.
Do you have any idea how hard it is to get souvenirs that are made here!!!!!
Thankfully I know some one that sells wood work so I'll get some thing from him as well, at least I know that it was made in Australia.
I had a lovely time sewing yesterday I got these little tops done for Miss C. Yes they are just doilies sewn onto singlets. they were selling ones like this at the markets when we were on holidays 3 weeks ago and wanted $ 50 each.
We went to K Mart and got these two singlets on sale for $ 5 and then we raided the doily draws. It's a bit cold to wear them yet but I have to make her a skirt as well for spring so I have time.
These are the little shoes I made for our neighbors new baby.
I got them from ceelew.blogspot.com. Thanks Cee
I had so much fun making these, that I'm going to make her some more. I made the card as well. My first attempt at this type of thing, but I enjoyed it I think I,m going to make more cards and put them aside for birthdays and things.
Today I need to get caught up on the floors as they need a good vacuum and mop, that way they will stay reasonably clean over the week-end.
I try not to do to much house work on week-ends as I think they are for family time. I have Mon-Friday to do house work, but only Saturday and Sunday to enjoy my family.
I hope you have a great week end and enjoy your family...........
