This week i will be entering for the first time a 'I Heart Faces' Challenge! I absolutely love reading this blog and seeing all the stunning photographs so I though 'Why not?!'

12 in 12 and 'a' Birthday!

Alternative title: Don't sew when your mad!

Here is my 12 in 12 submission for this month. A pair of refashioned yoga pants for my little Anna. This month it was 'Something in Knit' (Darn Knit!)

Doesn't she looked please! lol! (And like she loves having her hair done!)

I took this Roxy top of mine that is to small now.....

Cut it into pieces......and ended up with this!

A little happier but still looks like no one owns her!

It has a roll over top. She does actually love them. They may turn in to the bottom half a PJ set I think as I was a little flustered when I sewed them and ended up needing to make quite a few adjustments here and there. And there was some unpicking along the way. All in all though happy with the outcome.

Head over to My Favourite for more 12 in 12 submissions!

In other news, I turned 28 on Friday!

We dined on a super yummy Chinese dinner.....complete with Tinkerbell table wear. (Thanks guys..lol!)

My birthday card from my gorgeous nephew Caleb.....

Chocolate AND Caramel Mudcake!

(I kinda look pretty horrible here)

Special thanks to my Brother Daniel, my SIL Melissa, my loving children and of course the major person that was missing on the night, my Mum! (Mum is currently over in the Soloman Island for work but was definitely here in spirit!)

Mission: Complete one library bag before the morning

And I forgot so didn't get started until around 10pm!

Mitchell has library tomorrow. I wanted to make him a bag. Cost = nothing as I already had all the materials here.

Outer is black corduroy as well as the strap, lined with Thomas the Tank Engine. 'M' is also Thomas fabric ( but I guess the photo gives that away...lol). I also added two little blue snaps to keep it closed.

Mitchell is yet to see it so I hope he likes it!

A post for Mel!

I took a few photos the other day of my GORGEOUS little nephew Caleb, here are some from the totally random shoot. (For you Mel and yes I am getting the disc for you :) lol... )

Isn't he just TOTALLY cute?!!

I tell you he has won all our hearts!

My big boy

started Kindergarten on Friday!

I still can't believe he is going to be 6 in July...were does the time go?!

A day late but done!

Carolyn over at My Favourite is doing a 12 in 12 and I decided to participate. January's project was 'Something for yourself'. I'm a day late posting this but better late than never hey!

So I won't keep you waiting, here is my Madison Skirt....

I'm pretty happy with the outcome and I'm going to make another in a shorter length.
