Sunday sewing and a bit of a trim.

Today we finally cut the last of the tiles for the bathroom floor. It looks fantastic, just need adhering and grouting now. It's starting to take shape. I keep having d├ęcor ideas but we need to get the bulk work done first.
Here is a picture of it last night, it wasn't finished then but you get the idea.
This evening we trimmed no 2 sons hair and Daddy's hair, no 1 son had his cut at the hairdresser earlier. So little miss thought she would give her Anna doll a trim, luckily we caught her before too much had come off and we can give it a brush and the short bits get caught up in the long bits. Just as well it wasn't Barbie, she would be bald!

I decided to try my hand at a scarf for little miss after she asked very nicely if she could have a scarf like Mummy yesterday. This was my first attempt. The fabric, originally from Rooftop Fabrics, was left from a top I made her when she was still in the sitting still stages. I have been holding on to this bit waiting for a project to come along and this was it. She knew as soon as it was done what it was and we had to put it straight on. Her grin and giddy thank you Mummy said it all.
So after she went to bed I dug out this treasure I had been holding onto, a remnant from the stickered shelf at Walmart last summer. I couldn't resist but I was never quite sure what to do with it. Until tonight. I can't wait to see her face tomorrow. I hope it makes up a little for the revelation that Anna's hair isn't like ours and wont grow back after cutting. 
I am tempted to have a go at making some for me too. I admit I did try hers and they just fit me.
How was your Sunday?


  1. The bathroom is coming along nicely, that is our big job of the year this year, not sure I'm looking forward to it or not. Love the scarves, are they infinity ones?

  2. Bathroom's looking good, it does take time, I know, as we done ours last year! Love the scarves as well! :)
