Crazy birthday month

We all have them. Ours is July... we have no less than 13 birthdays and had a few kids party invites thrown in there too.

So you can guess what I've been up to.

Always trying something new I decided to do vinyl covered pencil cases for the girls, I've never sewn vinyl before. And the boys got peek a boo toy sacks after I found THIS cute pin on Pintrest.

I bought the cute Sprout turtle fabric after Dman spotted it while I was buying fabric online. But of course how do you use white fabric for a boy? So it became the lining of his toy sack and I've made sure you can see a whole turtle through the front peek hole.

Now it's August, I'm working through my unfinished projects. You know I have a quilt that I made for Fox last year and all it needs is binding. I'm guessing it will be done in time for Father's Day :)

Celebrating 5

6 months in the nagging... I mean planning. Yes, for 6 long months I have been asked 'when can I have a party, I want a party with my friends". So did you think we could let another year slip by without an actual party... not on your life! We decided on Lego as a theme, he loves Lego... and cars... and guns... but mostly Lego.

I found some lovely ideas on another blog and had to make up some Lego Bunting, I downloaded, laminated then used bias tape and sewed them together.

We hired a face painter, she was an absolute hit.

Lego cake, Donna Hay showed me how in her latest Kids Magazine, I just tweaked it to fit in my cake carrier.

 being outdoors in fresh Townsville sunshine right near the river was perfect, all the kids had so much fun and no personality clashes... oh i love it when you get the right mix.

One happy Birthday Boy :)
