Finger painting

Vacation time means, mommy who is at home has to find a way to keep the kiddos busy. So today, was decided to do a finger painting of a tree. I showed my girl how to and she did a good job. She even made branches fire her tree.

Stripe two tone dress

Last weekend I bought some fabric which I thought I could transform into good dresses for my girl. This afternoon I started on a new dress for my girl and I liked the outcome. I had all the supplies needed, which made my work easier.

Boy in pink shirt

Got a note from school yesterday saying my son's class party will be today. I saw the note pretty late but decided I need to make him a new top / kurta.

I had a enough of this pink cotton fabric and so made this for him.

Summer of 2016

Well hello again! Finally the dust of final exams are settling and we are inching closer to the end of a school year (yoohoo!!!)... I don't know if I'm more excited about this or my kids :-). I think I am certainly more excited ha! I hope to make good use of the next two months and help my kids have some fun at the same time help them to remember all that they learned the past year.

Summery dress

School is closing soon and my daughter has a class party and the last of her exam on Monday. So, naturally she asked Mommy dearest to make her a new dress. And since we had a long weekend , we decided to go shopping for some fabrics. I was fun going fabric shopping with my kids. The 3 of us had fun, we talked and walked a lot :-D. I picked up a few cotton fabrics I liked. We came home and I asked her which of the fabrics she wanted me to make into a dress and she picked a light pink (almost flesh tint) fabric with bright orange and yellow floral print. Very summer looking I think. I added some bright orange velvet bands around the waist and bottom of the dress.

Peasant Top / Tunic / semi dress

I loved the cotton fabric in navy blue with the mango design in lavender / violet colour. I had a feeling it would look good on Naima. Wouldn't mind a top for myself either but decided to make her something simple and easy.

That's it for today! Will post pics as I make the rest of her summer wardrobe :-). Till then Au Revoir! A bien tot!

Finally the finals :-(

Who knew time would fly so fast? It feels like just yesterday we were doing with the unit tests and now the finals are here arrggghhh.. Frustrations of the coach mom :-). My girl does most of her work on her own but we have those tricky subject(s) which needs more time and attention.

To be honest I'm waiting for the holidays. I want the exams to be over with! She had art exam on Friday, which in her estimation went well. From Monday to Thursday we'll be busy with the rest of the subjects. I think my blood pressure is running up. Wonder why :-)...couldn't be because my first born is writing the Final exam for the very first time, could it? and boy it's not going to be the last!
