A bit distracted...

but that's not surprising. I always think of the dog in the movie Up when I get pulled to a new project. SQUIRREL!!!
So I have been busy sewing away but not on quilts. It's nice to mix it up sometimes. 
This dress is for M. We're going away on a "big plane" soon and I wanted to get M excited so I promised her a plane dress. Did I deliver or did I deliver. I'm pretty chuffed as you might have guessed.

Hand made brooch adds the finishing touch.

I used a pattern from spotlight which cost me $4 on sale and I had everything else. Too easy. For anyone interested I used Burda pattern 9551. But as usual I had to use the size 2 for my 3 year old and I still had to bring it in on the sides when I was done. At least it will last her a while, as a top that is. 

Hubby surprised me with some books from Fishpond. (still one more on the way) Isn't he the bestest. Trust me ladies who are here in Oz. Their prices cant be beat, and free postage on all sale no matter how cheap. 

And just for fun here are some seedlings that M and I are growing. Winter flowers now that we're coming in to Autumn. She got so excited seeing the first sprout. 

Don't forget my give-away is still running. The button is on the sidebar at the top.  
Thank you so much if you've entered, I'm so excited I've already got over thirty comments. 
Thank you again.
