As i prepare for Handmade Market this Saturday, i'm finding hand stitching is a very relaxing way to end the day. I'm using 'odd' hair clips to hold my jersey & fleece baby wraps together while i bind the edges with pretty embroidery thread. First day of Winter here in Canberra, it was glorious, sunshine, warm, delightful, but baby's still need their wraps!! Here's one for the boys, Robot March with blue spots on the reverse.
While i'm making confessions about my business practises . . . i also use child labour!! Just for the record, this particular child just loves to be near me & she didn't have to do this, or line them up so neatly, she's just orderly.
This puppy is our guard dog, he sleeps in the hall way at night in Winter & gets to wear an Alpaca overcoat for luxe - no animals are harmed in protecting our family, he lives better than we do!!
Finally, this donkey has proven quite handy at delivering messages. Our 3rd daughter is finding it very hard to cope without Daddy. She doesn't like to draw attention to herself & i feel, this was her indirect way of communicating her emotions. She tucked this note in donkey's peg mouth, looked at me, tears welled up in her eyes & we hugged for an hour, bless her. Handsome Soldier called tonight after a long absense from communication & we had a lot of catching up to do, from explaining why there is a new starter motor in the car & my finger crisis to confirming we have all toilets flushing again & the girls came home from camp. Exciting stuff!! Love Posie
