About Me

My Photo
Married to Tony mother to 2 children Lucas 23, Gemma 26 & her boyfriend Sean. Carer for 2 crazy Jack Russells. I'm dyslexic so excuse any mistakes. The Stitching Room is where I spend my time playing with Clarice (my camera) and Bernie (my sewing machine). Come on in and see what I'm up to.

OK I'm excited

I'm not excited about Adelaide's recent weather.
Monday at about 5...... tea was in the oven and against media advice Lucas & I headed to the beach.

A lot of photos turned out like this, the wind was so strong I could not stand still to take the photo. Even if I used the car to brace myself I still could not stand still and believe me there is a lot of me....... you would think I would be anchored really well to mother earth.

But I am REALLY excited about these.

Kinder Girls

I have admired these little girls for a while but I am overwhelmed at how cute they really are. I thought perhaps it was only me who was getting excited about them, so I took them to stitching yesterday and all the girls loved them.
If you are looking for the perfect handmade present for a little girl or boy(kinder boys coming soon) head over here and buy a pattern you wouldn't be disappointed.

Kinder Girls

Gemma turned up and promptly requisitioned this one for Sean's little niece Adelaide who will receive her for Christmas, so it is not just an age thing.
Please note felted wool hand dyed cardigans.

Kinder Girls

This one will go to a charity auction.

This one goes to Amanda's daughter we did a bit of bartering.

So it is back to the machine to make some more.

Kris said...

Hi Leanne! I didn't even think to go to the beach during that weather. Wish I had now. Your photos are just gorgeous. They have quite an atmosphere to them. Love the girls too. Very sweet and you have done a wonderful job with them. They all look very prim and proper!

Jenny said...

The weather sure has been awesome-I nearly got blown away today and the tides have been all over the place! LOVE your little dollies and their cardies are cute. I have also bought the pattern but haven't had a go at making them yet-you have inspired me:)

periwinkle said...

storms are scary but your pics are great -- as for the kinder girls , love them - if I had girls i would be buying that pattern :-)

Simone de Klerk said...

The dolls a definitely cuties! I love the felt for the hair! Great idea and easier than using wool.
Your pictures of the beach are very impressive.
Geat post!

Julie said...

Stunning photos and your girls are so cute.

Myra said...

Awesome photos, and love those dolls! What great gifts to make for little girls!!! 8-)

Deborah said...

Awesome photographs! And your dolls are truly adorable! Big hug, Deborah

Teresa said...

Those are great pictures. I have always wanted to be at the beach when a storm was at sea like that, just to see the huge waves. I was tempted to go just like you did, since there was no threat of it coming on land but they were calling for waves up to 8feet. Now that would be something to see.

Cute dolls.

Love love love your girls, isn't it just the greatest pattern to make up.

Hi Leanne, Hopefully our rain has passed for a while and we get more sunshine. I've never known Adelaide to get so much rain!!
I love your new dollies. So very cute.
