A day visiting and the rest of the week too hot to move much.

Today was a horror super hot, I slept in the lounge room under the fan, I took the rubbish out and checked the mail a layer of sweat in a few seconds.
Yesterday I was making a red and white spotty dress for my grand daughter
but much to hot today for sewing,  because I know this cat will think it's hers, I will put it out of  reach and finish it tomorrow. On Thursday I'm visiting the twins and their mum so will finish it by then, my friend is coming with me, Thursday is the only coolish day this week all other days are 40c or close to it.

I found I had no photos of my daughter on my camera she took some of my photos, so I took this one of her  well a painting of her I did a long time ago.
This is the finished dress, but little things are so tiny and hard to make.
And this one I got from Target to give me the size.
Another one that was just so cute .
And we mustn't forget my grand son, who doesn't want a suit of cacti.
Here he is sleeping in the pram on a bed of Tall animals with long necks.
We went out for lunch and this little bloke slept all the way there while eating and home again.
Or  I not sure what, on a bed of chickens, maybe, but the little miss was wide awake and full of life.
Not to happy about something
Now thats much better
Well maybe not
Many moods in a few minutes.
They are well strapped in these days.
My friend and I at lunch
This was my lunch

and hers
Some of the street gardens are quite lovely.
Who leaves their shoes at the railway station., they don't look very old maybe not very comfortable.
Well thats my week.

    1. They were nice shoes but maybe too small for me and too big for my friend.
      Heard it is very cool in your neck of the woods.

    1. They have ducted air conditioning so sleeping is not disturbed but outside it's still hot but the twins are not too worried.

  5. Merle, the red and white polka dot dress is too cute. I'm a polka dot girl too, have always liked it. The babies are darling, and look at their sweet expressions. You and your friend sure had a Yummy lunch. That's a cool picture of the red shoes at the railway station. I wonder what the story is?

    It's hot where you live, Merle, and it's been raining for three days here!

    love, ~Sheri

  7. Crikey Merle ..... those little outfits sure are cute. Nearly as cute as the ones who will be wearing them. It sure has been hot for you down there. I hope you get a southerly buster soon. Who DOES leave their shoes at the railway station???????

    1. That's what is puzzling, bare feet are not easy to walk in unless you are at the beach.

  9. The babies are so adorable! I remember sewing tiny things, but didn't have to make many; my oldest had so many hand me downs from three girl cousins two and three years older than her.
    Is that Barbara with you? Her lunch looks interesting, looks like two slabs of chocolate cake resting on a creamy casserole.
    The street gardens are very nice.
    We've had a few cool days in a row here, perhaps they'll make it over to you.

    1. They too have lots of stuff but they grow so fast nothing last very long.
      Yes that was Barbara, it was banana bread and a sweet sauce with nuts looked wonderful, but I didn't finish mine and Barbara left some too we were saying there are childrens meals why not older peoples meals with just smaller sizes.
      I hope the coolness get here.

  11. Lovely photos. I was going to say the same as above. They grow so quickly and while each stage is delightful in itself, you quickly miss it as they move on to the next. I quite like the shoes. Did you check what size they were?

    1. No sorry but much to small for me I wear a 8/9 so somewhere under that.
      They do move fast it's only been a week and half and the little boy has grown a lot, sleeping a lot they say when they sleep they grow.

  12. Wow what a great post ! The heat has been unbearable here too, loved the photos of the babies, they look like their Mum and your painting of her is beautiful. The dress you made is lovely, it takes a lot of skill to sew baby clothes.

    1. You are right about making baby clothes very fiddly and just too hot for that sort of thing at the moment.

  13. Your Grand-babies are adorable! I am hating the heat here too — it saps all my energy. You don't have air-con either? Our nights are so hot too and I take it your nights have been the same too? Hope you get some relief from the heat soon. The humidity here is what hits me the hardest.

    The little baby outfits you made are lovely! I agree, the tinier the clothing, the harder to sew. I remember when I used to sew my daughter's dresses and I would always make matching outfits for her Cabbage Patch dolls — the doll's clothes were the hardest to sew because they were so tiny. haha

    Never see street gardens like that here. I don't think our councils would allow it but I think they look beautiful.

    Have a beautiful, hopefully cooler, Sunday ~ :)

    1. The weather is better the last two days, no, no air-con here but my daughter has so the babies are ok in the heat, I've just had the fans on and all the windows and doors open it helps a bit.
      We have a few around my way but you are right some councils don't like them. I saw on TV the other day where some places are planting fruit trees make sense to me kids could eat the fruit on their way home from school.

  14. Oooops, I meant to add that the portrait you painted of your daughter is beautiful! :)

    By the way, what genre of art books do you like?
