I was expecting all sorts of productive crafting from myself this week. Instead I've faffed and pithered about and feel as if little of any note has been achieved.
I cut out, prepared and started to stitch three handbags. After starting to make them up I realised they just weren't working. They've now had their seams unpicked and have been relegated to the pile of 'something to sort out at some point'.
After a bit more pithering this morning I decided I should do something just for fun so I made two little Easter egg collecting baskets for those naughty children of mine :)
Monster has had to decorate an egg for school and it is to be his favourite story book character.
I was so pleased with how hard he worked on this and I only helped with some gentle advice about how to get his painting neat (i.e. don't use your Mum's best paint brushes like a scrubbing brush - ack!!) and with glueing the felt hands and feet.
If you were in any doubt it is, of course, Harry Potter :)
Minx has her last ever Easter bonnet parade today as she is off up to Junior school in September and will be joining in the egg fun.
She decided what she wanted to do. I provided materials from my card making supplies and help in the form of being in charge of the hot glue gun. She designed and made the bunnies without any help :)
Continuing the Easter theme, I made a few of these at the weekend and they are now hanging from some nice twiggy bits in a vase.
I also made this mystery object earlier in the week and it's arrival at it's new home is imminent. I can't show more as it is a surprise :)
So although I feel I haven't got as much done as I'd have liked it hasn't been a total dead loss.
I am now going to run the legs off of my idiot barking idiot senile barking idiot pestering dog in the hope that she won't keep asking me for things all evening - again!!!
Then it's off up to school to see the Easter Bonnet Parade :)
