Weekend reading

17 January 2014

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. :- )

  1. I am positive we can get her there if we all work together ! Liked :o)

  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.


    1. I hope so Sourdough, she works so hard.

  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.

  5. What lovely clothes she makes! It seems there are a lot of people clever with their hands in your family :)

    I also want to say thank you so much for linking to my blog Rhonda. You are a very generous person in everything you do.

    1. You're welcome, Sarndra. I hope there are many more to come yet.

  7. Thank-you for sharing..I love the "Week-end Reading" column! There are some very interesting and helpful articles here. When I have more free time I'll read more of them. 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!

  8. Such cute clothes in your photograph, the fabric takes me right back to my childhood! Sarndra is doing a great job.

  9. I went to her facebook page and did the 'like' as you asked. Hope she makes the 1000
    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.

  10. Thanks again to everyone who visited my page. I really appreciate the support! Cannot believe I am up to 800 likers. Xx Sarndra
