This is the lovely card and gift made for me by my 4 year old daughter. The vase of flowers was made at school, and they even sprayed perfume on to give them a scent, which is sweet. Then the beautiful card painted under Daddy's supervision yesterday. Most lovely of all was her handwritten envelope. I am such a proud mummy!
Slightly more abstract, but no less lovely for it, was my little boy's effort. He's only 2 and was so pleased with himself. He told me it was a 'night time picture', but also took care to point out the circle detail at the bottom!
I was treated to a bacon sandwich for breakfast, courtesy of my husband, and more flowers to follow the St David's day daffodils yesterday. It was so sweet to see the children so proud of their efforts, and I got a few extra cuddles too!
This afternoon I got a bit of time off for good behaviour so I finished off the bag I was working on yesterday. Just a magnetic snap to attach, the pleating at the front and slipstitching the lining closed. It's been pressed, photographed, and listed in my etsy shop. I'm happy with how this one turned out. I'd drafted a new pattern based on a handbag I made a little while ago, and tweaked it a little as I went along. So here's the finished item:
I really love this print - it reminds me very much of a Portmeirion Totem dinner service my parents had when we were growing up. I used to love having hot drinks in the little brown coffee cups. I bought the same fabric in a different colourway too, so there will be more tea and coffee cups to come!
