Changing rooms

Way back in July (what! it's October already!) when we shifted into our new finished bedroom, the kids moved into our old room, and their old room got a bit of a spruce up. It was a bit slap dash really, I wasn't too fussed with the paint job as these rooms will have to be completely re-done at some stage. Which meant that I didn't mind that the kids helped out.  They loved it! We've been doing so much painting over the last few months and they're always dying to grab a paintbrush and help out.  They couldn't quite believe that I said that I needed their help!

We had set the room up as a spare room for guests, but just recently, sorry guests, the sewing table and machines and fabric have claimed the spot.  I couldn't take it any longer, it's been such a long time since I've sewed anything, all my fabric is away in storage above our wardrobe in our new room, which means getting out a ladder and a flashlight, which in turn quite quickly dulls any new sewing inspirations.  Not good I tell you.

So yay, I've finally done some sewing! And it feels so good.

And it seems that these newly coloured walls are having quite an influence on me, I didn't even realise what I was doing. It wasn't until I finished the dress that it stuck me, hey, what's with all the green.

The top is for Isla, made from a merino top of mine that had a couple of holes in it, the little smock top is for a little friend called Ruby who just turned 1 :) and the dress for me. (Sorry, should have cleaned the children's finger prints off the mirror!).
