Sod (n.surface of ground) off!!! I'm not being rude!

Something exciting happened last week - the boys performed the "Turning of the Sod Ceremony".
Then something exciting happened this week - the builder really turned the sod....
It is all beginning to happen for us. The dream is slowly turning into a reality. Hubs is going to start his own blog about building the house. As a Building Practioner it is probably more exciting for him to see his plans come to fruition.

I have finally managed to do the girls faces. I am yet to decide on their cheeks....embroider or just "rub" a little pink on - pencil, paint, blush, a bit of lipstick just to give it a softer look.

I'm pleased with how they all look...so far.

These funky wristlets are in my Esty shop now.
I am slowly getting back into it!
Take care, Kathryn.
P.S. The Australian Red Cross has raised inexcess of $31 million Australian dollars. Isn't that amazing. People are wonderful in times of crisis.

Your little girls faces are so sweet and I love the funky wristlets!

I received your package today and I love everything!! The little koala is hanging on my refrigerator already! I love the fabric you use. The colors are terrific (my bedroom is pink & green) and it feels so nice. The bunny will be loved by all three of my grandbabies!
I'm going to show things off on my blog later this week! Thank you so much ~ I love having a little bit of you & Australia in my home!

PS. I'm so happy to hear about the Red Cross ~ kind of helps one maintain hope in people.

It is so exciting building your own home. It will be fun for us to watch it grow right along with you.

I love the faces you embroidered on the dolls too.
Hugs,

Wow your &girls* faces look great how good will that look when its all finished. Never built my own homw before so will be reading your Hubbs blog when he gets it going. Love the material used for the wristlets.

Isn't it just amazing what people can do when they all pool in together to help those in need. I got quite a shock yesterday on the TV seeing the faces of some of the dead, thats when it really hits home.

Hi again! Sorry I should have checked that last comment...silly me! I ramble and ramble and I don't make sense sometimes. My grandparents live in a small town in NSW, but we have similar stories...different towns, but it sounds so alike!
