Bloomin' Bloomers

Why, Hello there mr fancy pants, nice to meet you, and it surely was a lovely treat to sew you!

I had a very busy weekend, Jakey and I drove to Rockhampton on Friday night and headed out to catch a movie.  We did the tango, with 'Rango' - and it was the strangest movie I have seen in a long time.  It has a lot of similarities to the movie, 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' - the main few points being that, Johnny Depp is in both, they are set in Las Vegas, they feature surreal scenes only imagined by the characters and there are weird desert animals and ugly contiki style shirts involved.  It was a c-razy movie, with hilarous characters and Johnny Depp was equally cool as a chameleon. The animation was flawless, and the movie was very ace. I ate too much movie food though, and nearly had to be rolled out of the cinema.

We then stayed the night and hit the shops the next day.  I need an intervention with shopping, I really do. I did purchase a few things, one, being a pair of loafers, two, being a tablecloth style dress, that will be perfect for hoedowns and barnyard dancing and amongst the many others there was a trip to Spotlight to purchase a fabulous new stash of material for sewing a set of bloomers for a Baby Shower present.

When we got home on Saturday night I baked two batches of cupcakes, iced them blue and then sat down at my handy Janome and made a cute pair of bloomers.  (While we watched the movie, 'Babe' - seriously, that movie is hilarious - real live farm animals that can talk? how clever of them).

I hope these shmancy pants look uber cute when the baby arrives, and that they're not too small for the chubby legs that will peek out from the bottom.
