No more school & a bit of baking.

The teachers' thank-you presents were finally finished late last night and then gifted this morning. One each for Indi and Jazzy's teachers and one for the music, art and Italian teachers.

I've got a few more to make but I work better under pressure, so I'll be making them at the last possible minute.

I love how these little stacks look.

I hope they understand the whole hand made wash cloth thing. Recently I was knitting one at a market and more than one person looked at me strangely when I told them what it was.


I had so many sewing plans for the last day before school holidays, but unfortunately Miss Pepper woke up from her nap just after I'd put the washing away, so not a lot got done.

Instead we made cup cakes.

And apricot and peach pies in these gorgeous little dishes we found at the op shop yesterday.

I hope you are having a lovely Thursday.

  4. The pressies look fantastic Kate! I am sure their teachers will love them. I was going to knit Isabelle's teacher a hat but he got a box of chocolates instead as I ran out of time to do it. Love those cupcakes, and yay for a break from school. I just hope my kids dont get too bored.

  9. The presents look wonderful.
    I'm sure they were very happily received.
    And those pies are just screaming out for a nice big scoop of vanilla icecream.
    Then, they must be shipped to my place. Post haste!!!
    They look divine.
    I can almost smell them

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
