Billy and Molly woke up very grumpy this morning, the novelty of going back to school and seeing their friends again, has well and truly worn off. They were not happy bunnies to say the least, until - HOORAH ! the postman arrived with a surprise parcel from Bertha.
There was lovely hand dyed wool felt , vintage buttons, some pretty pink thread ( which appears to have disappeared), a lovely card designed by Bertha and a wonderful pouch she'd made from vintage children's fabric. You can understand my delight, but why the children's ?
That lovely little purse was stuffed, and I mean STUFFED with sweeties,
and Yes, I did let them have some for breakfast ( the sugar rush kicked in just as we reached the play-ground).
Thank you Bertha, you made my life that bit easier this morning, although probably not their teacher's
Here's a little bag I made this morning taken from craft book 7
It should have been quick to do, but because it's for my niece's 18th bitrthday ,
it had to have lots of sparkly bits.
I find the older I get, the more I like sparkly, glittery ,girly, things. I used to dress like a boy and adore punk rock as a lass, but now I think I'll probably end my days looking like this.
