On the weekend my lovely husband gave me some time out! I have reached exhaustion point and was totally "kidded" out!
I had a lovely time, on Saturday i spent the day sewing (in between swimming lessons and lunch!) I then went to my Mum and Dad's and stayed the night, the next day my Mum and i went to the International Ellerslie Flower Show. I didn't go home until after the kids were in bed.
So what did i sew? Two of the twirly skirts from the Sew Mama Sew link (The House on the hill one!). This pattern is great! However, i would recommend top stitching where she says "don't bother!". It took me 1 3/4 hours to complete both of them and that includes making and feeding my kids lunch in the middle of it! Super fast and Super cute!
I also made myself a messenger bag. Photos to come. I fumbled my way through using a few different tutorials as a guide, but not sticking to any one in particular!
At the flower show i bumped in to a jewellery designer whose jewellery i used to sell. She spotted my button bracelet and grabbed it off my wrist, asking if i would wholesale to her!!! I am just about to send my samples off! Check out her stuff at Simplyjewels. I am hopefully going to be selling for her again before Christmas!
Here are some links i have been wanting to share!

Zoe asked if i would show you all what she has been up to. She is so into drawing and writing. She would literally do it all day if i let her! I love her pictures, they are always so detailed.
UPDATE: Ruby's toe is still doing OK! Here it is in her lovely purple cast, sitting in her lovely red wheelchair.
