Hello all my lovelies! Do you know just how much pleasure it is to sit down at my computer (yes darling hubby it's mine, just ask the girls) and see a flood of emails coming through for little old me? Do you know just how much I adore seeing all your very kind, supportive comments you write to me? Well I can tell you it's huge. It's right up to the sky and back and then some. I enjoy writing comments on blogs too especially when you see how much of an achievement someone has made. You just have to stop for a min and say "good on you". So thank you all so very much!
My sewing class at school is going quite well although some of the students are getting a little too familiar and starting to misbehave a little - tut tut! But mostly we have fun.
Do you also know, I had no idea just how tricky they would find making yoyos? Seriously I thought they would take about ten mins to do. Try an hour!! Good grief if only I'd known I would have made it a class on it's own. They were however, impressed with what you could make with them. I gave them an extra round of fabric to take home with them and one sweet student ran up to me today and said she'd made it last night. It's so nice that they want to sew out of class. It means that it's been successful and we now have a few extra sewers in the world. And that's what it's all about.
And what have I been sewing? Well I made these little Tilda birds last night. I've got a wee idea up my sleeve, so no peeking up there. It might work out and it might not, we'll see. Anyway it got me thinking. It seems many of you have a project you make that you enjoy and it's very you. Some make bunnies, some make bags, some make aprons and the list goes on... But I don't seem to have one of these signature projects. I think I'd like one, but then I'm not too good at sticking to one thing because I get bored with doing things more than once. But I would like one all the same.
The littlest one was itching to go outside and play today after the rain stopped. She put on her jacket and shoes and off she went. Several minutes later I caught a glimpse of her out the window. Just look at how much fun she is having...
I just cracked up laughing at her. She sure knows how to have fun that girl. I could hear her prattling away to herself as a fourth child does without company. Unfortunately she's since given up holding on to her trousers now. I do hope those shoes were taken off before the first adventure. Her boots are still soaking from the walk to school this morning.
I have a wee confession to make to you. I am addicted to the purchasing of lemons. Yes it's true. Every week, for weeks now, I have come home from the fruit and veg shop with at least one, sometimes two bags of the little yellow balls. I make lemon cordial with most of them and sometimes I make lemon curd like today. Their little lids are popping as I type. I must say though, I have mastered the art of making lemon curd to perfection! Yes I rule in that area, the crown is mine.
And now my darlings I really must go and see what the little one is up to now. It's a bit quiet for my liking! See you next time!
