Cass's lovely bag!


Arrived home yesterday to a package on my doorstep, don't you just love it when that happens! And I was even more excitied when I realized it was from the lovely Cass! She has been running a Pay It Foward idea and my comment was selected as a gift to be paid foward. I must admit when I commented in her blog I didn't realize I was in the running, but lucky me now! I meet Cass through Essential Baby and have formed a strong friendship due to a love of sewing, fabric and having eldest daughters the same age. I'm going to Sydney in March and can't wait to meet her in real person! We are buddies on Facebook too and always score 97% alike in silly quizes like "Summer 2007 movies" and "Life's Priorities" so we are going to get along like a house on fire I'd say!

But back to my lovely bag! The print is just stunning, so me, colourful and bright but still with black in it. I love how she has positioned the birds on the front of each side, very clever! And I love the stripes inside and the little pockets! I immediately emptied my old bag and piled all my stuff in it, thank you Cass, its stunning, I love it!

And a photo of my two pirates! Today at Grace's kindy was Pirate Day, she has been waking every morning for the last two weeks asking me "Mum, is it pirate day at kindy today?" At last I could say yes it was! Doesn't she look cool? Milly had to get into the action with a bandana and a plastic sword too. Must say this year at kindy has been the best fun. Ahoy maties!

So glad you liked it. I used the stripe fabric because you commented somewhere on my blog that you liked it. The girls look very cute too.
