Party like it's 1999

well i can't even remember what i was doing on new years in 1999. i was certainly pre kids so it would have been a big night. tonight we are spending a quiet night at home. mr has to go out and check that the 'irritators' are still running and the kids and i are exhausted from a week at the beach. watch a movie with a strawberry dacquiri and chocolate and off to bed. as long as little mister doesn't wake with teeth coming through it will be bliss!

didn't manage to take pics of any of my xmas pressies, couldn't find any charged batteries and they needed to be wrapped. take my word for it, i was pretty impressed. next year i want to make more.

managed to make this for a friend who has just had a baby girl. all my kids have got them in their room to hang pics on.

happy new year, haven't decided on my new year resolutions - yet. will keep you posted.

Pain (hole) in the bum

well unfortunately the only sewing i have been doing of late is fixing holes in my husband's pants, which to say the least is a pain in the bum! he usually rips a pair a week and he had run out of pants alltogether so i've been doing a pair a night. very unexciting!!!!

i was able to have a look at a couple of very cool shops in ballarat the other day with just mr bubba as the others were at kinder. glorious. treated myself to a very pretty dress, then had a look at vintage blonde and got a very cute shopping bag and paper lanterns, and my fav was dear prudence. my pal laura has got some of her stuff in there so i went in for a sticky beak and had a lovely chat to Kelly. will definately be returning to try on some vinatge clothes!

today i actually had a op shop win. even with 3 kids and 35 degree heat, we hit the shops and i thought i would try my luck, with the kids behaving, not necessarily trying to find something. anyway, found this crochet pillow and blanket. probably not quite the right time of year but worth putting away for when winter returns. would love to make the pillow into a bag but i can't figure out how they sewed it all together. crochet is on my to do list so if anyone has any suggestions???
