Computer Crash

We have been without a computer for the past week or so. My lack of posts can be blamed on that this time. And I have missed catching up with my usual blogger friends, not to mention trying to run a business without a computer. I have managed to get visit most of my usual blogs since coming back on line but haven't managed to leave comments with everyone so far.And trying to catch up with emails has left me a little short on time, so I thought I'd just leave you with a few photos of what's been going on around here lately.....

Some sewing..reversible dresses.

Major earthworks

A touch of spring sewing.

And it's been a while since I've posted photos of Evan. They were here for playgroup last week and stayed on afterwards. He is now 6 1/2 months old.

Looking forward to getting back to regular posting. See you then!


  1. Oh my goodness! He looks so grown up for a six and a half month old. Beatiful! And I love your sewing!

  2. Hello Kate!! It must be my turn to pop by your 'place' and say hello! I'm slowly settling back in and getting to do my usual perusal of what you have all been up to! Those babies just keep on growing don't they? And so fast!! Evan is so cute in your pics and looking as if he is rearing to go!
    I'm a bit impressed with your little dresses - you have been busy while the pc was out! Lovely to catch up with you here but I have to say that we thought about popping in to your place on our way down the NSW coast a few weeks ago. Sadly we ran out of time so maybe you might like a visit the next time we are up your way? Take care.

  3. Hi Kate,

    Great to see you back blogging! I made the exact same dresses for Jessie when she was little. They were great as they were two dresses in one! I wish they still fitted her!


  4. Thanks for your comment. It is amazing isn't it? When you get the chance to actually to make something from hand. I am similar to you. I am entering my second summer in my garden and I am already planning ways I can improve on last years crop. Love your blog by the way xox

  5. It doesn't seem long ago when you told us of his birth. What a cheery little chap!

  6. Oh those dresses are so cute! It is all looking lovely at Purple Pear. Glad your computer is working again.

  7. Evan is just gorgeous, and so are those dresses! Am very keen to know more about those earthworks...

  8. Kate those dresses are so gorgeous! I wish my little "growing up to fast" nine year old was young enuf to wear one! Beautiful! Congrats too on the recent magazine write up! I had the mag with me on a recent trip to the Philippines and was able to show them what a mandala garden bed was! you guys rock!
