I am tapping away here very early on a rainy Saturday morning. My trip to Ballarat for an engagement session as been post-poned due to the wild weather, so me and my loves have found ourselves with a free Saturday together we weren’t expecting. We are all still in pj’s. Hot chocolates and coffees and toast and eggs have been had. The kids are on to game number 4 and I am blogging. Later we are getting the sewing machine out and making bookmarks for presents (to family reading this, you can act surprised if they happen to be included in your Xmas gift!).
I haven’t really sewn anything before. I bought a sewing machine when I became a mother, thinking idealistically that motherhood would involve much making of costumes (despite my awkward use of pins and needles). I made a few baby blankets — well… cut squares of material and hemmed the edges. And then the sewing machine was packed safely away… to be resurrected today, on this rainy quiet Saturday, to teach my darlings to sew
And now, a beautiful family from a recent Sydney session. The next Sydney sessions will be in early 2012, so please drop me a line to email@example.com if you are interested. x
