You were good to me 2012. I gave birth to the most incredible little girl in my life, my daughter Edison. Nothing can top that as a highlight for the year!

Looking back over my posts though, on this blog, here's some of the fun we had. I had a great time getting to know you lovely readers better, through your comments! {And if you aren't a no-reply blogger then we've exchanged some emails}

I wrote some rad tutorials:

And I made some rad stuff:

And I also had Edison's Winter Collection when she was brand new!

Which tied in with the Little Sister series to welcome her birth! The Little Sister series is totally going to return next year by the way, I have been talking with my sister Betty who is having her own little girl {due in March!} and she would love to contribute some things!

And I also made up 7 masterlists of FREE tutorials and patterns from around the web for little girl clothing. I'm currently working on completing the boy one, and then I have to go back and update the girl ones! There's so much new stuff coming out all the time!

2013 is going to be so exciting! I have Project Run & Play, which I am working on right now, and a few other ideas in the works! See you next year!

Rainbow Dress

I revisted Dana's Baby Tanks pattern again, using a rainbow striped dress I picked up from the opshop!

I love this fabric, rainbows make me happy with their brightness and colour! I kept the pocket that was on the front of the original dress, a totally useless feature for an item of clothing for a baby, but it makes me laugh.

Underneath she wore a nappy cover I had made Vincent, just green with a knuckleduster stencilled onto the bum. We were so hardcore back then... hahah.

Sewing & Wednesday Addams

Just popping by really really quickly. I should be sewing but I needed to check something on the laptop and then BAM I decided I needed to add a post.

It's really hard not sharing the photos of what I'm working on for Project Run & Play! I'm taking a billion photos though, and when I get the chance I'm going to have a Project Run & Play Diaries sort of thing to share with you when the competition starts and I've sewn all my pieces.

It's really exciting, I'm pushing my boundaries and finding that I am rising to the challenge! Scary, only 16 days until my first submission and I really want as many of my pieces finished by then. I have a few themes sketched and KNOW what I'm doing, but there are two and a half challenges that I am so blank. It's bad, but I know once I get what I'm working on out of the way I can refocus and work on those blank things...

ANYWAY. Edison is 5 and a half months old now, but here's a cute photo of her at 4 months! This is her third Wednesday dress, and once she's turned 12 months I will share them all with you.

Okay, back to stitching! bye!
