busy, busy, busy

thats how its been here, just plain busy. The littlest one has been a bit unsettled since having his shots last week, so has needed extra cuddles and even if I wanted to, he is just too cute to refuse :).

But I have managed to get a few things done, some pyjama pants and some jeans for the 2 littlest monkeys. I even broke out the much underused embroidery machine for extra touches on the jeans, and I'm sure that even though they can't tell me how chuffed they are with their one of a kind jeans, they love them as much as me.

 Sawyers jeans and pj's

 Macallums jeans, didn't get a shot of the pj's, they have already been worn and in the wash but suffice to say they are the same as Sawyer's but in reverse

Also a bit a resurrection - these jeans have been sitting in my mending pile for goodness only knows how long, well finally the mending pile is done, complete, no more and this is oone of the projects - these jeans were Brierleys, I am guessing a few years ago since they are a size 6 which is now the perfect size for Tanner so we simply covered the holey knees with his favourite fabric  and voila new jeans!!!!! For those that don't know Tanners favourite alias ( he has a few) is Tman rock star, hence the favourite fabric :)

I also tried to save a pair of my old jeans destined for the charity bin as I just didn't like the colour anymore and never wore them but as they were quite expensive jeans I decided to dye them - and I dyed them black - I like the result but need to redo them as the dye didn't take evenly so maybe next time I will have shots of them.

I think thats enough for one post, I have been doing some other things but thats another be continued
