Goodbye Summer...

Even though it has 'officially' been Autumn for 19 days, I feel that this lovely season - probably my favourite - has only been asserting itself in the last few days.

We are now in need of the doona on the bed for most of the night, if I am up early enough in the morning (ie before 8.30 am) I need long sleeves on and it is 12.30 pm (daylight saving time) and there is still dew on the grass outside where it is shady. And finally a dahlia plant that I happily discovered growing last year - our first Autumn in this house - has it's first little flower buds on it.

So yes, goodbye Summer. Even though I enjoy what you bring to the year sometimes I do find you a little bit too full-on to handle!

2 down, many to go.

Well I have just finished my 2nd costume.

Many, many to go. Some are in various stages of construction some I haven't even started yet. Eep!

My usual online source of fabric sent me the wrong thing in my recent order, which has delayed my starting that particular project, but the replacement material should be here at the end of the week.

I am just enjoying a cup of coffee before I go and get back into it all.

Please enjoy the pics of this tutu I made last April/May. I finally got the dancer it was made for to model her costumes for me. This tutu is fitted especially to her and took quite a while to finalise the fit.

It was my first attempt at a fully fitted tutu made on a basque and I sort of improvised how to do it as I went along. Its not perfect but I was pretty pleased with the end result!

Just another Friday Morning.

And so begins another day.

Contemplating how my morning will take form.

I have already slept for a chunk of it. Ahhh sleep.

Work starts a 1pm. Really need to do some choreography for a routine, but I just can't get my head in the right space. But I seriously need to do it.

It appears I am having difficulty spelling today...

I also need to cut some music for another routine.

And amplify music as my new 'stereo' doesn't have very loud speakers and when you are teaching tap that isn't a good thing.

Sigh. Everything seems a little bit monotonous today.
