Piako Fete 2

The Nukes
I'm hopelessly behind in the blog but just have to say that the music was fantastic at the Piako Fete.  Check out the Nukes.

We were a little fearful when we saw a ukelele band was headlined but these guys are great!

You can see their cool Facebook song here - delightfully takes the piss outta all this interwebs stuff.

Anyways since we are talking ukeleles, I am in Fiji now. So may have more ukelele music for you soon...

The Nukes
And here's their Peas and Carrots song - a bit of romance to finish off with...

New Belle Frocks ...

New Belle Frocks

More colours for the new Belle Frocks
I have been cutting new frocks today. Here's a few pictures of the new colours.

I am trying out some darker colours as I think they will look quite dramatic.

The red/pink floral is from an organic cotton fabric as is the maroon one.


And some maybes for the embellishments but I can never really tell what's best until they are sewn up!
