A little bit of sewing.

Joey's top is made from wool interlock, made right here in Geelong.
He loves his Bugs Bunny in his racing carrot.

On Alice's tunic I thought I would smock a free form flower, And that's certainly what it is, oh well. Luckily she has no opinion on what I dress her in yet.

Every morning when we collect the eggs Alice checks to see if they are still warm!

The other side of Miss Alice

All my friends know that I love to cook, and I have always encouraged the children to help, every day whether baking a cake or chopping vegges for tea, there is always a child helping me.

This child, is, by far the messiest, even by my standards. I cringe at the thought of cooking with her and contemplate cooking when she is having her lunchtime nap...... but I don't, ultimately I know how important the sense of touch, taste and smell are to a child. Squishing the cake batter through the hands, I know, is important, but it's hard sometimes, and I nearly take the easy way out.

Luckily cakes are cooked at 200 degrees!
