jan, 4th - boxing day....

day 1054 / 153:

okay, i need to move on.....i feel like i'm stuck in 2012 and this year is already motoring along.
so here are the last of the Christmas photos...for now.....

on Boxing Day, we wore our Christmas Day hats. they were meant for Christmas Day lunch but we didn't quite manage to get them done in time so we decided to dress up on Boxing Day instead (any excuse really). my sister is incredibly talented when it comes to hat making so these were made from scratch.....each petal was hand shaped and stitched. i wanted to capture more of the creative process but we were on a tight deadline. under her tutelage, i made Limi's which is why the flowers are not quite the right shape....definitely need a bit more practise....although, Limi didn't seem to mind notice.

i love the below series....a new dress for Christmas and Boxing Day hat....

and this pic, which looks like we have stepped out of a Victorian portrait....

and this final pic which is of Limi with her cousin. it would be sweet if i didn't know for a fact that she had his arm in a vice-like grip and wouldn't let go.....she adores her cousins and they, as you can tell from his face, are extremely accommodating with her.
