Catching up!

I have not blogged for such a long time. I thought I'd better tell a bit of our Winter months. Above is a picture of the family at Hogsback. We went up to the mountains in early July, it was great. We just missed the fantastic snow which came the following week.

Below is a photo of the dresses I made for the girls. I used a soft denim and appliqued a picture on the front and sewed ric-rac just above the hem. I have not sewn since I had children so it was such fun to get back into it and now I feel inspired. I only wish I could find some decent old fashioned dress patterns.

\The above three pictures are of us during the Womens Day long weekend, at the beach. We stayed with my sister at her holiday cottage. It was so relaxing and the weather was mild for early August. Chilly nights. James and I have not had a photo in years, so I really like this one.

Here the children are dressed for a neighbours party. This was late June.

  1. Beautiful pictures! The dresses are gorgeous, and it's fun to see a picture of you and your hubby.

    What is Womens Day?

  2. You have a good looking crew! Great job on the dresses/jumpers.

  3. Hi there, I'm new to blogging and I'm looking for fellow South African bloggers to communicate with via the blogs. I see that you have a link for SA christian home schooling but I'm not quite sure how to use it or if it is operating. Could you give me any advice on finding other SA homeschoolers? Thanks so much, Nikki


I love hearing from other families, please leave your comments ;-)
