This year really is zooming by. It is school holidays here (we're halfway through two weeks of holidays). This is what Miss 17 wore to school on casual day during the last week of term. For most kids casual day signifies a day to get out of school uniform. For Miss 17 it is a costume opportunity. She went as Wally from the "Where's Wally" books. (Waldo in the US I think) She spent the day being "found" by everyone at school! I have been busy continuing to get organised and just being busy. I have been watching re-runs of "Project Runway" on Foxtel. Not re-runs to me though, because I have never seen them before. I looooove "Project Runway"! Foxtel is partway through season 5. I find them all so inspiring. Not sure if I love the show so much cause I just like seeing people sew (What??? Sewing is my best!) or whether I just enjoy creativity - even vicariously! The show makes me think I can design clothes, so it definitely is inspiring! I have a day of sewing ahead so I must get to it!

Hey you.....wondered where you were.....I like it..... just busy being busy!! me too!! I was going to spend a day in the sewing room yesterday but got my dining room back to where it was before the renos happened....I was sick of it looking like we had been robbed or were moving out! Feel better about that but still no sewing...enjoy your sewing day......!

Ditto, me too, been doing quite a bit of sewing, but can't show much as it is all Christmas presents. I didn't pick that Miss 17 was wearing a costume, but I liked the look, great idea seeing casual day as a costume opportunity. Enjoy your sewing too.

Love the Wally outfit. We call him Wally too and my kids love the book. So, how are your kids finding going to school instead of homeschooling and how are you finding it with just one kid at home?

My kids (Jason and Molly) had pajama day at school - they both wanted zippered footed pj's - it was very funny! I'm not sure what is more disturbing - the fact that they make giant zippered footed pj's or that my kids wore them in public! :O) Anddddd, I love Where's Waldo!

I also love PR! I've watched it faithfully since the very first episode! (And that's saying something!)

That's so funny, to dress up as Waldo/Wally...such fun!
