End Of August Wrap Up

I would have had this posted on Friday or even Saturday but life around here has been hectic.  My daughter went to the coast caving for the weekend so Friday was spent getting her ready and out the door for her trip.  Also on Friday, my Father in law had his birthday party which involved me providing a bacon and egg pie plus the prerequisite birthday cake.  Although the cake was made and partly iced by my oldest son and I just cleaned up after him.  Mr Epiphany took both boys to the rugby on Saturday giving me a bit of breathing space and then of course Sunday was Fathers Day and also my sons end of season rugby break up....Phew!  It has been busy!  This morning Mr Epiphany has taken my daughter to Timaru, some 2 hours drive away, for a school sports tournament.  He should be back about lunch time hopefully!  As for me, I plan to go for a run before it starts to rain.

    1. I was a little concerned about being a little too transparent as well but I must say, it has been an interesting experience. I am now wondering whether I will carry this on next year.

  2. It has been a great sewing month for you - so many wonderful garments - I especially love your stripey dress, the green jacket and the green jeans and the blue dress ! Also great value for money - the blue dress alone would be worth $139 bought new.

    1. I keep telling myself my sewing is value for money as well. But the big question is, would I be buying this many clothes if I was forced to wear rtw?

    2. I mean't to ask...Janine, are you still blogging as I have been denied access to your blog?

  3. Wow - as always, an impressive collection. I'm in awe of anyone who can sew their own jeans! Our house is a bit quieter this week too with #1 in Auckland playing hockey.
