They got skills, they're multiplyin'


Today was awesome !!

Awesome kids made awesome toys with awesome helpers in an awesome setting.

We laughed, we made fart jokes and might have worn our unstuffed toys as masks.

I recommend all of the above.

  9. They are all amazeballs!

    And, is it me or do all those softies look very much like their creators? You know, like the dog looks like his owner kind of thing?

  12. Beautiful work! They should be so proud of themselves. I teach kids to quilt. After a week they have a lap quilt to cuddle under. The smiles on the last day go from ear to ear.

  27. Thanks Jodie we had an awesome day, Keira's duck hasn't left her sight, or bed! He has travelled around and been introduced to everyone and all agree he is adorable! He now has a Owl playmate, with many more friends arriving soon! Thanks again for re-inspiring the softie in us, we can't wait till next school holidays to see you again and continue to be inspired! Mill Rose Cottage is a Beautiful place to inspire our children, and nurture our addictions!!

  32. Hmm, Angry Birds softies maybe?! These boids look very cheerful. I hope it was them doing the farts and not the kids! If you're not careful, you'll end up a teacher for real and then you'll be sorry!! Or at least someone will. :)

  33. Brilliant! Well done all of you! Once word spreads amongst their friends, I'm sure you'll find you have more days spent stitching/teaching your clever designs (those birds are so cute, btw), while laughing and telling fart jokes. ;o) Kids must love you, Jodie!
