Five years ago…
The other day I found this Christmas letter from 2007. Five years ago we were getting ready to leave Adelaide and make our adventurous and courageous move to Tasmania. I like looking back and thinking about the things that have changed for us over the past five years. I can’t remember what it was like […]
Fabric Friday: Christmas!
I have made some Santa sacks for Monte and me. I’m pretty sure that Monte has been a good boy and that Santa will be coming to him this year. I am *hopeful* that he will be coming to me too. I made some sacks with some red, weird elasticky fabric and trimmed them with […]
He is six
Matty is six. The thought keeps repeating in my mind, over and over, like a track on repeat.

The Geeveston Christmas parade and carols evening was a lovely event, as usual. Most of the population of the town seemed to be in the parade and it went for quite a while. We all chose to watch it together this year; in previous years some or all of us have been in it. It […]
Fabric Friday: repurposing
I received a large bag of little girls’ clothes last weekend. I rummaged through, taking a few items that I thought would be suitable for Elora. One item was a little sundress. It was sewn out of very pretty fabric, in a pillow case dress style, but the straps and binding were so frayed that […]
I have been looking through my photos of 2012, reflecting on the year that has been. I have been working on our Christmas letter: a summary of our year. I found this photo, which I took in January this year. I love it. It is one of my favourite photos ever. I remember the day […]
