Well, we've had a week of firsts for my daughter, yesterday she swam for the first time without armbands, we took them off and she was happily swimming a length of mum's pool, turning around and doing it all again
Then today she got on her bike and rode it without stabilisers... she's so proud of herself. She's not yet 6 so not bad with the swimming, considering we haven't sent her for lessons or anything but I know a bit late on the bike front, DS was just 4 when he rode his but at least she's managed it.
Our local supermarket had a special on 28 stationery products, you buy them and then get the money back in a gift voucher type thing, so we had 80E worth of free stuff :) we managed to get two lots of both...am I the only one that looooooooooooooooooves pens, paper, pads, highlighters lol...
(think Pepsi likes the new folders too ) we had to share it all out between the 4 of us but now I have lots of nice pencils for patchwork club
The kittys have also grown alot the last few weeks but they may be going back to the cat's home (Just kidding) can you imagine the cheek of them....asleep inside my frame
they've moved the practice cotton off and snuggled deep inside the batting.
Sewing wise, I've managed to get the 4 churn dash blocks made and sewn into a 18.5" block, currently in the post on it's merry way
Yes there is a fair bit of my precious architextures in there.
This afternoon I whipped up a pom pom hanging ornament, trying to work out if they'd be any good on the Christmas tree, I followed this tutorial
from SeamStar and used my sizzix die for 2.5" circles, took minutes to make and they came out cute, now I'm thinking some red, purples, gold and perhaps some glitter.
It's my 12th Wedding Anniversary on Sunday, it's silk apparently but I'm hoping a trip to the fabric store or car dealers might be in order.
Have a fab weekend x
