We live in a small country town, & going shooting of vermin on farms is a normal thing to do!!
My son Sir Dreamsalot (9) has never been interested in going out roo shooting with his father until just recently. Last week he went for the first time & then again this weekend. He did say he only went along for the ride not for the shooting!!
So Sat night off they go, hubby, mate, DD & DS kids have earmuffs on to protect their hearing & as always kids forget that even though you cant hear you can be heard
So they find the first roos they are going to shoot, turn the ute off to help with keeping quiet & not spooking them when out of the silence Sir Dreamsalot belts out Rolf Harris’s christmas carol Six White Boomers at the top of his voice!!! Well the roos were spooked & took off at 100mph while hubby & mate just sat & laughed! Miss Lankylegs was trying to get his attention to tell him SSSHHHHHH
After that he managed to stay quiet & the boys got some roos!!! And when they were telling me what had happend Sir Dreamsalot informed me he didnt sing Six White Boomers he sang Two Brown Boomers to the same tune LMAO!! And he knows the song by heart as last year it was their school concert item song & he played Santa!!

And what a great way to count down the sleeps??? Instead of those chocolate filled advent calendars that have the kdis eating chocolate every morning for the first 24days in December check out the Christmas Countdown Calendar where the kids can rub out & change the number each day. Made from gorgeous Christmas fabrics & with a piece of chalk attached to a ribbon for changing the day number.

Recently a lovely lady from All For Women contacted me about a personalised Christmas stocking for her nephew Owen. Last year I did personalised stockings but with the rush leading up to Christmas I never actually got them onto The Sewing Fairy site & with many people leaving them to the last minute to order can you believe I actually forgot to take photos!!!! But I did take photos of Owens before it left the Fairy Den.
The whole stocking made from red velvet & white fur
Close up of the name embroidery only 1 style of many available
Detail on the ‘toe’ section of the stocking, stitched in metallic gold thread.
I have some more Christmas ideas up my sleeve & will be test stiching them very soon. Keep an eye out for further posts & pics After all there is only

Well what a night it was, last night was our schools annual concert & award night. Soooo much hard work goes into this by both teachers & students, but the results are awesome!!!
Every year I offer my sewing skills to the class’s that my kids are in for costumes, props etc. This year I made 8 dresses, 16 sleeves & a 5mt curtain with the word Censored on it. Everything turned out awesome I feel. The kids really put the effort in with practise, making props etc so I feel they deserve to have great costumes.
this is my DD’s class they acted out the song “The Streak”
this is my DS’s class they acted out “6 white boomers”
Well done kids you were all fantastic & thankyou all for the choccies, wine & card you gave me
