Building this week

I have been sewing this week, but don't really have anything to show for it. I am sewing a formal dress for a friend and have spent most of the week making alterations to the pattern and getting the pattern right. I think I'm almost there with the dress now and have just cut out the dress. These photos show some of the building my boys have done this week. Mr 15 is the creator of the duplo guy above.

The wooden train tracks are Mr 9's creation. For some reason blogger thinks the photo should be this way (sideways), but it makes the face hard to see.

Tonight Mr 15 built his very own dog. It was just so cute. Grandson was visiting today (to escape the hot weather we are having and having and having) and he loved the dog so much that he destroyed it! (I think that was Mr 15's plan once it had been photographed)

Hopefully I will be back soon with photos of my completed sewing. Lots of it. And hopefully the temperature will go down here too. (Really sick of the continual 39 degree C days the weather bureau keep predicting. C'mon guys, you're getting predictable and boring!)

I love when kids think up their own things to make. Ryan sure does love his legos! He couldn't find the directions to his lego train so he set up the track and built his own train - and it worked! That's what I love about Legos.

I'm hearing you with the heat Kris, though we are still quite a few degrees cooler than that! Amazing creations here, I see the face in the sideways pic, blogger has been testing my patience a few times lately with formatting.

looking forward to seeing your sewing efforts revealed....I will be revealing some of my thoughts on the weather later in a blog post...i am looking for positives though so the blog post may never eventuate! Still can't complain(well - I can but I shouldn't!) ...I work in an airconditioned office, drive to work and home in a car with AC and since the heat of last summer nearly drove me nuts ...we have a couple of AC units at home....so really I am not doing too badly....but I agree the 39 thing is boring which is probably why they opted for 40 for Sunday?

Love the dog. It remembers me you left me a post last year about the duplo and I didn't even feel the slightest hint you could be my secret Angel ;-).
