It suits them!

Took my boys shopping today to buy their first suits so they are ready for their Year 10 Formal.  Without further ado, here are my little boys - first Fly Boy.  He knew exactly what he wanted to wear - black suit, white shirt and red tie.  He chose what he wanted as he wasn't yet asked anyone to the formal so didn't feel the need to match anyone. 
 And then came Guitar Hero.  He is taking a cute little doll of a girl and she is wearing a dress that is mostly black with some denim blue and shades of purple.  Purple and Black are his favourite colours  so he chose the pale purple shirt and the darkest purple and black tie.  Love it!  Purple was everywhere so it seems it may be the colour this season!
The whole process was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be thank goodness.  We even managed to get some casual shoes for them - hurray!  Vans if you are interested!  Just not sure when they got this big!

And I even managed to get a little bit of sewing in today - I have finally finished the binding, at least I think I have, so that we have enough for all 22 soldier's quilts.
 Oh my goodness, I never thought I would need a laundry basket full of binding!

One more sleep till I draw the winner of my first ever giveaway.  I am not planning on telling you what is in the bag until it has arrived in its destination so if you want to know sooner than that you better hurry up and leave a comment! 

Till next time.......happy stitching!


  1. What handsome young men you have there! Aren't they cute as dolls in those suits, and I love the purple!! Smashing, both of them! :D You should be right proud of them. It is scary how they sprout up over night, isn't it? I'm so happy for you that you have gotten all of those quilts done---and I would never be able to envision a laundry basket FULL of binding...totally intimidating to me. You've done an excellent job and I'm across the pond cheering you on. :)

  2. They look so handsome! It really tugs at your heartstrings when you see your little boys looking so grown up! Mine ARE grown now and I still get teary eyed thinking of all those memories of them as little boys.

  3. Your boys are so, so handsome, they are going to melt some little girls hearts. I know they melt their mums heart.

  4. You have two handsome young men there... congrats! :)
    I hope I get lucky in your giveaway...but if I don't... thanks for giving me a chance to daydream! :)

  5. I can't believe that only a few months back you were trying to get them into dress shoes. It looks like this trip went much easier.
    Sure are handsome guys!

  6. WOW! 2 tall, handsome, almost grown up, "drinks of water!" I hope that expression translates okay down under. : ) Love the ties!

  7. Congratulations on a successful shopping trip...and they look great! They sure grow up quickly, dont they?
    Have fun binding!!

  8. It certainly makes a mother feel older, and shorter, when she realizes she's looking up at her children. Happened to me too, when our son and daughters all reached 6 feet and then kept growing. Your boys look so handsome and grown-up.
    I think you have a binding adventure ahead. Enjoy!

  9. They look great... Time passes so fast as I look at my daughter and if feels she was born not so long ago. So much binding !!!

  10. They are both looking very handsome, you must be proud of them.
    Have a wonderful sunday

  12. What handsome sons you have! That is so neat that they are smiling too! Wow, that is a basket of binding! Can't wait for your great giveaway and to see what someone wins!
