Little dress and holidays?

I've just started sewing classes again and finished this off lastnight. The fabric was left over from a bag. Cute huh?







Now, the holiday.......
My husband has time off in November so we decided we desperately need to go away for a few nights. Upon contacting our usual holiday accomodation at our regular destination we find they have raised their prices rather substantially. So, after much brainstorming we came up with the idea of buying a large family tent (we have a tent but its too small for all of us) and hiring a tent site at the caravan park. We have never stayed in a tent with 3 small children so this could be a very interesting experiment. We figure if it works out well we are saving ourselves a lot of money for future holidays by hiring a tent site instead of a cabin or house. Now to find a tent.................

Kmart seems to have a few well priced tents when I went in there today, think they are going on special on Thursday.

Another thing is - do you know of anyone that has a bigger tent? If you dont - put up a notice at playgroup, preschool etc etc and see if anyone will lend you one that is suitable. Would hate for the kids to hate it - or for you to buy a tent and figure out that you need more/less room etc!

I did have a peek at the Kmart website Jade, but couldn't see much in there, I'll have to get into a store. After looking around I've realised that big, quality tents are ver expensive! The search continues.......
