Hey there, Hope everybody is good.

Yesterday I took my children to visit their Nanny, my Mom. What a brilliant day we had. It was mostly warm and my children spent many hours playing in the garden with my youngest brother. It was lovely to sit there and listen to them playing so nicely. Evi even managed to get Uncle Owen to play Barbies with her :)

Meanwhile my Mom and I got down to some serious work! My mom taught me how to sew a child's dress from a paper pattern. Something I have always wanted to do and something my Mom has promised to do with me, since I was about 5 yrs old.We spent hours in the kitchen with biscuits and tea, while we slowly worked through the pattern, with my Mom explaining every step of the way. The only thing I didn't do was take very many pictures. Here are the couple I did take.

I had a really good day and after my Mom had finished teaching me, she packed me off with an arm full of fabric and a paper pattern. 

Right I am off now to go and cut out more dresses in my little craft corner.
