Thank you for all of your amazing comments on the last post, Carter thoroughly enjoyed being the center of attention, and loved hearing them all 🙂 He’s even been referring to himself as the story teller!
The days recently seem to be passing by so quickly. Sometimes I just want to hold on to a moment and savor it a while, do you ever feel that way? Here are some (mostly crafty) moments from the past week.
Maia is loving these beads – you melt them together with the iron (I have to say I think this is a much better use for the appliance than getting wrinkles out of clothes!). Too bad an extraordinary number of beads end up on the floor, and in fact, all over the house.
I finished off a couple of small purses. Ill be sharing a pattern for these soonish, maybe even tomorrow if I get organized.And while the sewing machine was out, made a new book bag for our resident bookworm.
And a lining for this little project. For some reason its taking forever (I have no motivation to finish it, heaven only knows why)… Push came to shove in the lounge room this week, and I had to clear out some of the yarn which was taking over (and then some) a whole corner of the room. I sorted some from bins into draws… very neatly of course!
The rest made its way to the spare room. I also ‘found’ a few half finished projects, which gave me a much needed respite from (excuse to stop) cleaning/sorting/chucking out. One was this crochet mandala in blues which I made ages ago and never got around to sewing in the ends. Carter was so excited (as you can see) when I said he can have it… in the past few days its been a mat in his room, a teddy blanket, a costume (cape), a hiding spot (its really good for hiding under Mum), but mostly a snuggly in bed at night. I sewed in the ends – which took all of 10 minutes.
Have I ever mentioned that Paul, Maia and I have brown and hazel eyes? Carter’s are beautiful blue…We went to the zoo this afternoon… it was a lovely sunny day – the first after a week or more of rain. We have a family pass, it’s been such a good investment.
This made me laugh, I’m not sure who was watching who?Finally, here’s a pretty spring posy I picked from my garden.Tomorrow is the first day of spring AND fathers day here in New Zealand… it’s sure to be a good day! How’s your week going? Love Janette xx
