Some of the wraps I have dyed - before and after. I overdyed the Didymos Antara Dragon with ocean blue and the Didmos Puder (Powder Silk) dark pink and then Violet. I am very happy with both. I used Dylon for both and used my laundry sink. It is easy to do - just follow the packet instructions carefully and don't forget to stir!
I was visiting relatives in Melbourne for a few days so I decided to visit the Art Gallery as I hadn't been there for years. My older children found it interesting even though beforehand they thought it wouldn't be. My three year old needed keeping a close eye on though so she didn't touch the art which was very distracting. If I go again I will bring along a carrier for her. I did have a stroller with me but no one wanted to sit in it except my 10 year old who asked my husband to wheel him around because he was tired! While I was there I spotted this painting - The Crossing of the Red Sea by Nicolas Poussin. It was painted in 1634. Spot the babywearing Mum!
Carrying on the tradition!
My niece is staying with us for a few days over the school holidays so we decided to go to the Fairy Park at Anakie. It's a nice place to go with little kids. The girls liked the animated fairy tale scenes. Although it is advertised as pram friendly the path between the displays is quite steep in places (the path winds up a hill leading to a castle on the top). I remembered this from last time so I didn't even consider bringing a stroller.
On the way home we picked some strawberries for dessert.
And finally this is another reason why my sewing is a bit slow in the school holidays! (Older children forgot to close the pantry door)
I love to sew. I have five curious and active kids who keep me busy!
