The reindeer food is ready, very important.

Some of the cards are ready and I know postman pat is already very grumpy!

Christmas Baking

I'm attempting to bake sweets for the Christmas Day gathering and decided to on several slices among other yummies.
While shopping I needed 125gm but the packaging is now 100 or 200gms, I found everything I needed I had to buy extra and in some cases I will will have excess.
I'm sure all these companies must have changed their packaging over the years and it's most annoying.
These are older recipes and I'm sure that it would have been a packet of this and a packet of that but not anymore.

Party Dress

I finally finished the dress from several weeks ago.
I had actually measured, some what rare for me, and thought I had chosen the correct size, but alas it was too big and I had to try and resize it. The waist is still a bit low but the top fits better.

All those Australian tea towels I have been collecting, with help from friends, have been made into bunting.
There is just over 8 meters, maybe a little much?

Saturday Sewing

I found this little black dress in the oppie the other day, never been worn and made from a nice stretchy fabric. 
When I tried it on the neck line was too low perhaps that's why no one had worn it.
First thing to go was the bow on the tummy!

I rummaged around in my cupboard and found some black and white spotty cotton fabric and added a frill across the neck and then added a pocket in the same fabric.

I finished the neck line with 3 buttons and 1 button on the pocket
