Breanna's Tutu

I've been wanting to make my daughter a tutu for so long now. I've had the tulle sitting for about 3 months waiting...
Well I finally made it, and she just loves it! She pranced about all weekend, dancing and leaping all over the place!

I've also been busy sewing up a few bits for Etsy and my Oz handmade store. Above are some sweet telephone & address book covers, notebook covers and another pin cushion...

And some cute lavender sachets...I've also done some in linen and lace which look great! These are offered only in my Oz Handmade store due to the problems with sending lavender overseas...
I had a nice relaxing day for Mother's Day. I was invited to a friends house for breakfast since hubby had to work. The rest of the day was spent doing what I love best...sewing! Hubby bought Chinese home for dinner which was just lovely!
My children had a fete on their school on Saturday. So off we went, the kids had a ball. Fairy Floss, pony rides, jumping castle, fire engines...
A lovely weekend!
It's Breanna's birthday on Sunday. She'll be 7! How quick they grow... I'm madly trying to finish her quilt to give her - she's been asking me for so long for one of her own. She also wants new pillow slips, so hopefully I'll have time to get them all done.
She has 5 school friends plus family coming over for a little party - we're thinking PINK! Of course I'll have to make the boy's something blue though...
I've decided to make cup cakes for her birthday cake, and display them in a "7" with pretty pink sprinkles.... If anyone has any more idea's for me, let me know!
Best wishes,

Aww your daughter dancing about. Now that is gratefulness! How dear. Always lovely items from your hands. I've been doing all painting lately. No sewing. Been trying to transform items to fit into my minds eye of cottage. Long tedious task. Can't stop at just one item. No, must find all things and paint. :>)

Hi Jenelle,
You are one very busy lady. I like the look of all your handmade goodies.
The lavender bags are so sweet. I'd like to see the linen and lace ones. I've also been dabbling with some lavender bags.
Happy 7th birthday to Breanna.
The cake sounds like a cool idea.
Have a great day.
