Well, I did it. I survived another long school summer holiday. My ears and my nerves are battered and shattered but I survived.
Anybody else find being a parent hard sometimes ?
Good, I thought so. I'm just going to stop typing for a moment and give all of you Mamas a great big hug.
Did you feel it ?
Anyway, at last I can feel my crafting mojo returning, I sat in the garden yesterday and sewed a little sewing,
mini tissue holders for Molly and her friend Ellie to put in their school bags. I could say that I made them mini size to fit in their pockets, but that would be a lie. They are mini because I completely buggered up the measurements and had to fold the tissues in half to make them fit. They do fit in little girl's pockets though, so it's a happy accident as opposed to a complete f*%^ up. ( Do excuse my bad language - thats another thing I'll blame on the school holidays).
I also at last had time to peruse the pages of my latest Cotton Time mag,
I love these simple embroidery ideas,
and there's some lovely linen work too, nice linen seems so hard to get hold of in the U.K, anybody know any good suppliers ?
Some nice applique,
and lots of shopping bag ideas.
There are also some very cute softies
there are pattern pieces for Red Riding Hood, but no instructions, but I guess she 's simple enough to put together. Cute eh ?
And how about this little sweetie
I love his little apron.
Have a great weekend !
