Over the long weekend, we headed over to Strathfield Park . . its a lovely little spot in the middle of the burbs with 3 . . yes .. 3 playgrounds !! As well as a few soccer fields and basketball courts and some lovely bbq areas . . its always busy!!
We often have every parents favourite battle when it comes to getting dressed for the day . . and at only 3 my little miss suddenly has her own ideas of what she wants to wear and what she wont wear!
I thought I had a few more yrs!!
So I tried out a new overall pattern with some funky dorothy flannelette . . must admit I am not impressed with the pattern . . will stick to my old one . . but here are they are anyways!

Im slowly but surely conquering my fear of knits . . they can be so pedantic to sew with . . my overlocker will make them so much less scary I think . . well . . I hope!
This long top / tunic / dress thingo is for Matilda .. a little big as its a size 4 but I am loving it . . its not perfect and I need some practice with my bindings . . the fabric is awesome for this type of top i think with the bell sleeves and such . . knit is from CM of course!!

Is coming to the party! I went all out this year and decided that I would try a novely cake . . usually I go for the square or circle and just add something to the top . . but not this year .. mummy made it special!!
She hasnt seen it yet so I hope she loves it as much as I do!
I am very proud of myself!
Well my little babygirl is now getting all grown up!! She turned 3 yesterday and we had a brilliant day . . . made a special cake . . she decorated it all herself without eating a single smartie!! My nan and pop came over to share the cake with us and bought over some a lovely solid wood doll cot as a present .. Matilda loves it!!
It was just Matilda and I . . eating .. playing .. unwrapping .. laughing . . it was wonderful . . she was so well behaved as well , which made it an extra special day for both of us!!
Her party day is tomorrow . . with all her little friends . . a toddler tea party with a special cake!!
