So,I decided to try harder to fit in some creative time, and did manage it. You'll see Charlie wearing a little grey vest - I have been trying to make this one for some time - I felted an old vest of Michael's, and it worked out so well.It will certainly keep Charlie warm.
I also got to play with some of the beautiful fabrics I bought from Fabricworm,on the website Etsy (which sells hand crafted wares as well as supplies).It is such a pleasure to sew beautiful fabrics. I made a skirt for Freya using the Anna Maria Horner fabrics, and a headband for Lily.
I also made this "holdall" and plastic bag holder, for the side of the change table.It is great,it keeps everything close,just where I can easily reach.The lovely fabric is another Anna Maria Horner fabric, so pretty.
I must say I felt really satisfied after the sewing session. Which led onto a wonderful Mother's day on Sunday. Just briefly, this is what contributed to a wonderful day:
- A sleep in
- Breakfast in bed courtesy of Freya
- Three new Pandora beads for my bracelet (Oooh!)
- No chores ALL day
- A session in the garden,planting out
- Lunch at the beautiful peaceful farm with Michael's parents
- Michael cooked a yummy stir fry dinner
It was just lovely having the day with my children and husband.I am blessed.
