Afternoon my dears! Morning to my other dears! Yes I'm chirpy today, am I not? About time really. I've been someone else lately I'm afraid. But as from yesterday I'm back. Yep and I'm back into my sewing which is very nice. Not really sure why I've been a bit odd lately, perhaps it's because it's my last year with my darling little sausage at home and I'm missing her already. Silly aren't I? Never mind, I'm just going to get on with it again and start having fun once again. Lots of sewing and doing fun things. The man says I'm always much better when I am busy with my makings.
So let me introduce you to... OK I haven't actually named him/her! Not that it matters as it's my first toy to donate to my 'Gift of Love' Appeal. An enormous thank you to you lovely ladies who have offered to make some things for the Christchurch people. They will be much appreciated I'm quite sure.
The bunny came from the Softies book. I've always like this rabbit for it's simply design and the fact that a little poppet can hold him/her so easily. I'm betting those denim ears will taste pretty good too! Do you like his tail? It's a piece of Moda tape with cute dots on it. I was also thinking that I could embroider some tape with a word like hope or love. But I've run out of tape after making lots of name labels for No.1's school uniform.
Yesterday was a very grand day as I also made pumpkin soup for a special guest coming for a sleep-over on Thursday! I know, a real sleep-over!! All will be revealed later in the week. And you know what?? That pretty pumpkin came out of our compost bin!! Do you think I should hide this fact from our guest? Yes probably! It's it just the juiciest, orangey, pumpkin you ever did see?
Last evening, after a great day, No.4 took her Daddy to kindy for a special Daddy's night. They ate fish'n'chips and sang songs. Sooo cute! Anyway we weren't going to miss out on some fun, so the rest of us bought our fish'n'chips and ate them at a local park.
Aren't we so very lucky to have this gorgeous park only ten minutes from where we live? It's quite new so the plants are a bit small. But the landscaping sure makes up for it.
The girls walked up this man-made hill. I didn't want to risk breaking my shoes so I waited at the bottom. Boring I know. The big girls roller bladed around and No.3 enjoyed scooting on her squeaky scooter. Must get the CRC out for that wee problem.
The evening was just perfect. Warm, not windy and very peaceful. Just look at that heavenly blue sky.
Well I better get my boots on and get a bit of house tidying done before it's full of children once more. Not that they will care of course! Does your house always look messy? Ours sure does, every jolly day! Alright, have a super duper day yourselves! See you next time!
