I was thinking there hadn’t been much creative since last week - the day after the circus Caleb got a horrid cold and conjunctivitis and has lovingly shared it with Poppy and me. The stuff out of noses this week could stunt double for Jaba the Hutt (though I haven’t been moved to whip out my gold bikini and hair buns). We are slowly on the mend now but we finally got around to making a dinosaur badge that he has been asking for for ages. He loved them so much that as you can see they have grown into a collection (he is a boy who loves a collection!) Yesterday when he told me he was going to make dinosaur badges with his son it seemed even more special – there is a lot to be said for felt, safety pin and some cardboard.
And of course, some embroidery on the couch is perfect when you are feeling under the weather. This was aided by Glen taking the kids out on Sunday morning for me to have some time – it has never happened before, but sooo good. Brownie points for him, which he used all up when I showed him said embroidery to be asked what was it! Can you tell she is blowing a dandelion. He suggested adding some yellow so you can see it better – what do you reckon? I added a little texture to it as well.
For more creative spaces pop over to Kirst’s, the house of luova sankari (see you aren’t the only one that whip out a little Finnish, lets hope the translator was nice to me)
