Labouring on Labour Day. With pleasure.

Yesterday was Labour Day. But it was almost a whole day of rain... bummer! We were pretty much stuck at home. All of us. Bosaannn....

You know how dark and gloomy rainy days can be.  And that it can last the whole day, raining intermittently. Cold and yawn inducing. Yesterday was exactly that!

Kids spent time knocking themselves silly with the XBox, while the younger ones randomly played this and that, with some squabblings and yellings in between. Pretty much a normal stay-at-home situation.

I, on the other hand, couldn't take it not doing anything. And since I had been on a roll with my sewing project, I embarked on yet another peasant dress for Aisyah, just to add a few more to her collection.

It took me almost 3 hours working on this one. The lace and ruffles took the longest because it was my first attempt. I've done lace, I've done ruffles... but not putting both of them together. And I must say, I'm pretty pleased with the result...

The picture's a bit low on quality. Abaikan je lah eh? I took this using my handphone and edited it a bit to remove some blurring due to low lighting. And to try and make the lace a little more visible. This is the best I can do.

I will take better pictures when Aisyah wears this, okay? She has yet to wear this and the previous one I made. That's probably cause we haven't been out of the house yet since I made the dresses! Lol!

Well, I'm hoping the weather is kinder today. Kind enough to let me shoot some pics of my daughter in her new dress =).

We'll see.

Have a good weekend, y'all.
