Autumn (the harvest time): 9:30am. Grabbed some bargains at the local op shop: a parka for Elara for our upcoming Tassie trip; a kids puzzle for $1 that I hoped would have all 52 pieces (it did, and four other complete puzzles hiding inside too!); and this shirt for Elara to wear to her Easter day at Kindy this Thursday.
Summer (the blood, sweat and tears time): 1pm. Threw away India's dummies, after one very difficult and two less difficult nights without them. I'm now declaring us dummy free.
Spring (the refreshing, productive time): 3pm. Chopped off some sleeve and made Elara's shirt suitable for (Brisbane) Autumn weather. And couldn't resist creating a bunny badge to go with. Too cute.

Also check out the stores of these (friend of a friend) ladies for some great accessories: Grace Designs; and My Sweet Muse.

A new life, in the form of a baby. After miscarrying Aven six months earlier, I was afraid, though I didn't want to be. Then, after awhile, the signs of another miscarriage arrived. Doctors, hospitals, and waiting. Weeks went by. But then some hope. A heartbeat!
It's Spring. It's colour, warmth, and cheeriness. The long winter, the dark days and the cold wait are over.
For me (in sunny Brisbane), Spring usually arrives mid-August. For me (in 41 week tradition), this baby will probably arrive mid-August. And I will know that Spring has come. And I will sing this song to our little one (which I have been singing since November, in hope)!
Bring on Spring :)

I made 5 Bridesmaid dresses for the 5 lovely attendants to my Sister-in-law, Jem, on her wedding day. Everything was beyond beautiful. The weather was amazing, the scenery stunning, the bride radiant, the love all around, and their family so happy together. Congratulations to Jem, Terry and Rayya on making it a day to remember.

By the way, you can be one of Elara's 'best friends' too. All you have to do is have or like anything the same as her: wearing pink...best friends!; drinking a glass of milk...best friends!, love watermelon...best friends!; enjoy cuddles...best friends!; the list is never ending. She is a gem and I do hope she always gives her love and friendship just as willingly!
