Maybe I should just post about all the craft I had planned to do over the weekend- it would certainly be a longer list than the one of craft ACTUALLY done……
During the last week I have been working on my little monkeys for Mirabel and Connor (Master 12) has been helping me with the stuffing. He was keen to hear all about Mirabel and why all those "weird crafty Nanna's" would send toys to people they didn't know.
He has really enjoyed the stuffing (and it is a much safer craft than his recent attempts a needle felting which saw me get all five prongs in the arm while gesticulating wildly on the couch).
Anyway, Connor decided completely out of the blue to make his very own softie to send to Mirabel……so he drew a few pictures and picked the one he liked best. He lined it up and folded it down the middle so the sides would match and cut it out.
We dashed off to Spotlight for some polar fleece and he sewed it up. (That was an exercise in self control I can tell you – If my go ! stop ! turn ! No! Stop! Shrieking instructions were anything to go by I’d say Miss 16 will be having driving lessons with Mr Ric-Rac- not me) .
Ta Dah !!!! So I am bragging because, as the mother of an almost teenage boy , you know not every day is a bragging day , so when I get one by golly I'm going to enjoy it !
