Things you do on your wedding anniversary

spend money of course!
Dentist (for Tink - no holes, YAY) then off to the optometrist to pick up the new glasses (mine and Tink's).
Yes, Tinkerbelle needs glasses.  We'd known something wasn't right for several years, but the optometrist said it was ok due to how school at her age is taught meant glasses weren't needed.  Not any more, so much to her delight, the glasses were chosen, ordered and delivered.
I think she looks gorgeous.
She chose those frames herself.  Such great taste!

Ready for the competition season

Tink now has leotards for all 3 routines that NZ Level 2 rhythmic gymnasts do for 2010 - freehand, hoop and ball.

the sewing machines are out again...

and the NZ gymnastics competition season starts in a month, so I've been sewing:

A Tinkerbell leotard for Tink - this will be her hoop leotard.
My fabulous neighbour, Clare, is enjoying herself being creative and is currently making Jess' ribbon leo; while the fairy godmother, Sarah, is employing her quilting skills putting applique flowers on Tink's ball leotard.
That  just leaves me to ge to and make a purple & silver hoop leotard for Jess, and maybe something else for her freehand routine.  We scored a lovely one for Tink's freehand at the club's 2nd hand sale last month.
So be warned - there will be videos again...
