A family who makes reindeers together

laughs together.

Making reindeers

This afternoon Gemma and I did some cooking
but we also made reindeer which quickly became a family thing.

Making reindeers

it's serious work when Tony puts on his glasses

and soon(actually it took quite a while) we had a herd.

My friend Amanda and I are going to dip our toes in the Market pond.
In February we are going to have a stall at the Grange Twilight Market.
You will find us on Sunday February 6th - 13th - 20th between 5pm and 9pm at the Grange foreshore.
Do come say hello.
I thought I had better get sewing so last night while Tony was working and Lucas was out I whipped up another basket.
I love this owl fabric I wouldn't be sad if I don't sell this.




This isn't for the market
Gemma wanted a bunting made for Adelaide who is 3
you have to love the little ballerinas.

Those reindeer look delicious! Will they all survive till Christmas...?

It won‘t take long before reindeer will take a trip to Holland. It looks a lot like Scandinavia here. 30 cm’s of snow already!

Love your owl basket!

Sarah said...

that is a great looking basket.

Oh and those Reindeers look GREAT!

Marg said...

The reindeer look great, and I love your basket.

Kris said...

Oh I was drooling over that fabric the other day. It is simply gorgeous!

I was intrigued by your title, and then laughed when I read your first line. It looks like fantastic fun and your reindeer are beautiful. Last year we made the candy cane, pipe cleaner, googley eyes reindeer, but yours look much more delicious!

Merry Christmas! I hope you and your family have a wonderful time. (Looking at the reindeer and thinking about your big red ribbons I'm pretty sure it's going to be a good Christmas at your house!)

How cut are your reindeers and all the family helping even more special.

What a fun activity to do together! Your reindeer look fun and delicious. Love your latest bag - enjoy the preparations for your market.

I think you are an amazing sewer the way you can turn out such amazing things in seeming short order!

Loved the reindeer and best of all the good time making them.

May Kristin said...

Looks like you are having a great time together! Love those reindeers, and if they taste as delicious as they look... Hopefully you will have some left for Christmas! LOL!
Love your little bag, and especially the fabric! I have the same, but in cream. I'm not a big fan of owls, but I couldn't leave the shop without that fabric...!
Now I only need to find a good use for it!
Wish you and your family a Merry Christmas!

Hi Leanne, my dream is also to have a market stall. Good luck with it - will have to come on down and say hi to you. Your sewing is so beautiful I'm sure it will be a success. Have very much enjoyed reading your blog through the year and I wanted to wish you and your family a very happy Christmas. Might run into you at Hetties! Love Jill xx
