I sewed a skirt!!!


Yay! Using the link I shared a couple of posts back (which i can't link to whilst in Picasa sorry!) I made this little skirt for Stassi tonight. I can't wait to see her wearing it in the morning (and just hope that it fits!) lol :)
Anyway, was so excited that I just wanted to share it before I went to bed as proof that all things are possible! LOL - Its been a dream of mine since I was a little girl, to make something for my own daughter some day. And of course, not owning a sewing machine doesn't really help you ever achieve that! lol :) I am so excited that although its not the most elaborate or amazing thing in the world, that I have actually been able to sew something that Stass can wear!
Going to bed giggling tonight!
Love Lus x

Hello darling Lusi!!! I have been meaning to ring, meaning to write, email, anything but I'd love to catch up. I'm commenting to apologist but I tagged you, more photo related than scrap related so I hope you don't mind too much. You are in my heart girl, and your fam too! Chat soon, Lu

Yay Lus! Good work. :) Good to read that Stass loves it, too.

I was relieved, too, to read that Stass only just lost her first tooth. Most of T's friends lost one or two last year and I was beginning to worry about it.

Are you guys doing the tooth fairy or something like that?

Hi Sum :)
It's her first top tooth but she lost two bottom teeth last year when she was 6. I reckon most kids just lose them somewhere between 4 and hmmmm about 7! lol :) I have no idea but this one didn't look like it was going to move. Some of her friends have lost 6 or 7 teeth so i guess it just depends on the kid.
We don't actually do the tooth fairy thing but we do put their tooth in a glass and in the morning when they wake up they know that mum and dad have placed a coin under it. So far for each of the three teeth she's lost she's gotten 20cents under the glass and she thinks that is awesome. I guess the main difference for us is that we are telling her that we put it there and she still gets to enjoy the surprise of seeing a coin there in the morning :)
Hope you are all well mate and that Talitha settled back into school well.
Lots of love,
Lus x
