Father's Day

We are just at the end of a great Father's Day weekend. My sister and her family came for the weekend and also a friend, Jo braved the house full of many small girls. We had a nice day out in Nannup yesterday. I'm not sure what else we have done but eat. Lunch in Nannup yesterday. Lunch at the Cidery today. A good dinner last night (If anyone has the English Country Living Magazine from May the Chocolate Fondant Puddings are divine).
Here is Chris, Amelia and my niece Emme at lunch

A little bit of exercise after lunch yesterday - thanks Jo for the great photos.

The girls were allowed to wear their new clothes. I finished a shirt for Amelia just like the one I made for Grace.

They both got a pair of corduroy trousers. The pattern is from Ottobre 4/2008. I made them without any of the pockets so they were very quick and easy.

Hi, I have been reading your blog for a while now and love it. I knew that you lived in SW Australia but not sure where. My aunt and uncle live in Green Bushes and we visited with them for a while 7 years ago. I loved it there (I live in the UK)and would love to visit again. Your little girls are gorgeous and look stunning in their new clothes.

Those pants look great! I've just ordered a couple of Ottobre magazines as I keep reading good things about them and seeing lovely outfits like yours. Hopefully I have as much luck as you!

Such cute girls and I love those little cords and the little shirt. Funny, fathers' day in Canada is in June...seems to be different around the world. Looks like it was a lovely weekend and I love the photo of the girls.
