Hopefully back to crafty pics tomorrow. I have a bit to show now I am getting over glandular fever/virus. I just had to post a pic of Ayden from before he went to his graduation dinner yesterday. It's not often I can get him in front of the camera. He had a great night!

A very quick pic taken last night before a presentation, for all those who wanted to see a pic of Ayden and I together. I hope he doesn't grow any more or he will have to duck to get in that door. He is 6'7" or 2 m tall.
I've been preparing all year for today. It's so hard to let go and understand that your baby is almost an adult and ready for that next step in life. We are so proud of Ayden. I've just come back from another assembly and hearing him speak. It's the big graduation dinner tonight where he will be dressed up in a suit ... looking a bit better than the dress he was wearing at muck up day yesterday I hope!
There are a lot of things I won't miss, ironing the shirts, finding clothes that fit, paying the school fees .. but what I'll miss the most is that drive to school each morning and hearing all the drama's of school and Ayden's opinion on every.single.song on the radio and listening to "like a version" each Friday x

I've been quiet the last couple of weeks, with the kids all on school holidays. It's been pretty frantic and with Ayden getting ready for his final Yr 12 exams, the pressure has really been on.
Behind the scenes I have been working on another secret project that should be available soon. I've nearly worn a hole in my finger with a marathon binding session last night. I just love working with these pretty and fresh colours - and scrap busting too.
Maya and I have gone through a lot of my patterns to get ready for the Kids Clothing Week Challenge next week. I have the day off tomorrow and I am hoping to do a bit of tracing tonight. I'm not sure if I will get an hour done each day but I'll aim towards it. The Olivia top is already partly done, and I even managed to get confident with my over locker to do the rolled hems. A big achievement for me! On order is also the Oliver + S Sketchbook Shorts pattern for the boys.
