Reversible! This is my 3rd attempt at the same hat. Thankfully it worked this time. It's a little bit mushroomy but definitely wearable. I would've been really cross if I'd wasted some of my favourite Amy fabric on yet another stuff up. The secret to hat making? Precision cutting and precision sewing.

the second rise
It was demolished. And I'm wondering why I didn't do this sooner...

I seem to be the only one in the family who likes to eat them. Abby's was lobbed back on the plate with a 'yuk' and Rory carried his around the backyard for most of the afternoon like treasure. Treasure that he wouldn't eat.
Cakes that Rock
2 cups SR flour, half a teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/3 cup castor sugar, 90g butter, 1 cup sultanas, 1 egg, lightly beaten, 1/3 cup milk
Mix flour, cinnamon and sugar in a bowl. Add butter and rub in with fingers. Stir in the sultanas. Add the egg and milk and mix until it is moist but firm. Make golf ball sized balls and bake for about 15minutes at 200c. Eat at your leisure. The vultures won't be interested so there'll be no need to scoff these babies.

First, some skirts for Bab.
The red one is refashioned from a skirt I made for myself last summer. I wore it a few times before realising it was completely see-through and totally indecent. Yikes. I do love the fabric though and it doesn't matter so much if people can see little girl love heart knickers.
OK, time to see how many 1 hour skirts I can whip up before I have to retrieve the kidlets.
