New Projects


Focusing on what I love to do. Look out - Etsy here I come!

Hanging a Swing


Given to the girls over a year ago 

Hung by someone not afraid of heights 

I savor these carefree days

Happy Days


Handmade Gifts #1 - Money Pocket


My sweet neice, Maggie, turned 6 today. I made her a little drawstring bag and embroidered her age on it. I put 6 dollar coins in the bag to make a perfectly lovely gift. I hope she likes it!

Simple Skirts


Yesterday I made Nola this skirt for school.

One of my earliest memories is staying with my nanny in Cambridge, England and her making me a quick skirt while my mum was out. It was a simple cotton skirt - very flowery as was her way.

I was so excited and completely amazed that she could make a piece of clothing so quickly and without a pattern. 

School Bags


This project was a definite collaboration between the girls and I. The girls drew self portraits in chalk and then I embroidered their pictures and made the bags. I am really pleased how the bags came out and the girls are very proud of them. And the best thing is that their first school bags are so meaningful, so personalized and so them.

Photo Exhibition


Nola and Kira documented their everyday lives for a photo exhibition over at lilla a.

A Sweet Daisy Party


The girls arrived home from their first week in the Daisy class at our Waldorf pre-school to a celebration fit for new daisies...

For Kai...


I do believe this is my girls' first love their dear friend Kai who was sick on Wednesday and missed class. Nola and Kira directed their photo shoot, chose their favourite picture and have instructed me to put it on their blog. My goodness, how times have changed.

Hi Kai, I love you Kai. I want to play with you all the time Kai. These flowers will help you feel better soon. I love you Kai. See you on Monday. From Nola and Kira xx

Kids Photo Exhibition at lilla a



Check out  lilla a - she is hosting a kids photo exhibition. It is so much fun to collaborate with other kids from all over the world to create a masterpiece. I know my girls will have so much fun taking pictures for this project. I hope you will consider joining in too.

Kids Art Work Preserved


A project in the works...

School Slippers


Yesterday we celebrated the girls' first day of Waldorf pre-school. The girls did great, but Eric and I were a nervous wreck.

I'm not sure if I made these slippers (here is the pattern) for the girls or for a mummy who needed to send her babes off surrounded by the comforts of home. I'm not sure if my story (that each little hand-stitch was a mummy hug) was for them or me.

I watched these sweet girls of mine, with slippers in tow, dance off into class and not look back. And I picked up hot, tired and very happy girls - who felt their mummy hugs all morning long.

Yes, it was good day at school.

3-Year-Old Fashion


Crafty Birds - Kid-made baby gift


Using fabric markers on plain burp cloths, the girls and boys made sweet gifts for baby Molly.

This is Nola's gift - a mummy with a baby inside.

Party Hats for Molly


To celebrate the birth of baby Molly, Willie and JT and Nola and Kira all decided weeks ago that she needed a birthday party. These 4 friends (all 3 years old) created the perfect celebration for their new little sister and friend.

Of course, I was delighted to sew felt party hats. The kids made cards and decorated burp cloths. We ate tiny cupcakes and sang happy birthday.

Welcome Molly!

Farm Life


Good Morning Deer


It's a brand-new day

We're Off...


With Love From Grandma


Last week my girls received very special gifts… Quilts that my mum has spent her last 4 years of evenings and weekends hand sewing - she has made one for each of her 4 granddaughters. That is 8 years of Sunbonnet Sue, birds and flowers.

While Eric tells the girls their bedtime stories, I like to gaze at the quilts and look at the perfect little stitches, uniform French knots and the uniqueness of each pretty flower.

Most of all I am reminded of all the beautiful unseen things that my mum wove into these quilts – her patience, wisdom, warmth and love.

Farmers Market Finds


Oh the joys of summer - our farmer's market is a lovely way to begin the weekend. It fills our basket with bountiful food, relaxes our minds, and makes the rest of the weekend yummy and good.[...]



Birthday Celebrations



We had a birthday party last week - really an entire week of birthday party especially for me.

I was surrounded by all of my very favourite people - my girls, my hubby, and my folks. It was filled with a spectacular cake, special nature finds, hand-made cards and a fancy new camera.

I feel thoroughly celebrated!
