|pineapple and prawn fried rice|
the first creation was some shorts for the boy inspired by a pin on my general crafts board from saltwater kids ... there are some seriously good tutorials on sewing for the novice on this blog :) emily at saltwater kids transforms a mens shirt into some stunning boys shorts. unfortunately the only old shirt i had of steve's to chop up was a purple one so that wasn't going to work for my nine year old boy, but i did have some nice blue gingham cotton. even if you don't have a shirt, you can definitely follow along with the tutorial and she gives you great advice on the how to's and know how and even steps you through making the pattern!

the final creation of today is pineapple shrimp fried rice pinned from skinny taste onto my recipe must do's board ... in the supermarket early this morning to get a couple of things and some imported pineapples were reduced to clear. normally i would have thought well its not summer here (clearly!) i don't need that, but then i remembered i had pinned a couple of pineapple recipes to my pinterest boards the other day ... so that little pineapple came home with me to be turned into a pinterest inspired creation ... this is why i love pinterest, i am trying things i normally wouldn't bother to do!
