First she wrote and illustrated a book called 'Mr Apple's First Job' in which Mr Apple and his next door neighbour Mr Blackberry secure themselves great new jobs as chefs. My favourite line has to be 'Why didn't I do this job before IT'S BRILLIANT!' The book has been 'bound' and taken into school today :)
She also did some sketching and here's a little sample:
I was looking at these drawings this morning and thinking of how I could use them. By a strange coincidence I then went over to Mollychicken's blog and just look at the fab ideas there!!!
This may be turned into a crafty challenge very soon!
Apart from me, is anyone else out there an impatient crafter who likes things to be started and finished as quickly as possible?
I get all twitchy with 'works in progress' but I'm getting better (slightly) at taking my time.
I seem to have a whole load of WIPs this week and all at various stages of assembly. Rather than just get on and finish some I decided to start another today!!
An almost one-legged rabbit for this week's crafty challenge:
I say almost as I, luckily, realised in the nick of time that I'd only made one leg and quickly addressed the limb shortage!!!
I started fabric painting this last night for an order:
It's supposed to be a West Highland Terrier but it needs more work - especially around its rather strange mouth!!
I've blanket stitched the elephant applique- oooooooh, I looooooooooooove having blanket stitch on my new machine:) !! He needs a tail and an eye.
Then I wonkily topstitched ratty for my other order:
I seem to have suddenly accumulated a large number of hand sewing projects. They were scattered everywhere so I've organised myself and put them all together in a basket ready to get on with this evening.
Here's my handstitching to do list: ('cause I know you are desperate to know!!!)
Handstitch 3 name labels for cushion orders.
Stitch elephant's eye and tail.
Stitch ratty's face.
Turn, stuff, and assemble Tilda bunny body and handstitch face.
Stitch something on a surprise Valentine swap something.
That should stop me reaching for the wine and chocolate in front of the telly tonight :)
Once I've finished that I can get on with my crochet!!!
My friend was telling me just yesterday how bored she gets at home.
I can't seem to find the time to get bored!!!
