Weekend reading


If you have a little time up your sleeve I hope you'll have a look at my DIL's facebook page, Bluebell Alexander. When we visited them after Christmas, Sarndra was having a little break from sewing but I saw her work room all set up nicely, ready to spring back into action. That time has come. Sarndra works from home and also at the local fabric shop. She's got a good eye for design and is a very good seamstress. If you're looking for well made clothes for boys or girls, from baby size to older, Bluebell Alexander is for you. If you're not looking for clothes, I would love it if you would help me get her to 1000 likes on Facebook. She's at 611 now, will you help? I wonder if we can do it. :- )

  2. Morning Rhonda - I have "liked" your DIL's Facebook page. I wish her every success with her business, she is going to do very well, I love the little pants and vests, so cute. She will get to 1000 before she knows it.

  3. She's got some lovely kids clothes, but just letting you know the photo you posted isn't one of her creations- it's someone elses that she linked to. You may want to swap the pic.

  4. Your DIL makes some lovely clothes for kiddies, Rhonda. I am sure she will get 1000 likes before too long. I have never joined Facebook so can't give her a 'like' unfortunately. Have a relaxing weekend. It is still lovely and cool here in SE Qld this morning and I hope it starts to cool down for our southern neighbours soon.

Your blog is my favorite! Oh, and after seeing how much a slice of toast can sell for, I think I'll go into the toast business! Ha! Ha!

    Here sewing is just wonderful. So very cute. I wish I had littles again so I could dress them in such cute clothes. Thanks for the 'show' as I love to look at other's sewing projects. So very nice.
