our creative space . . . 'softie bombing' . . . a nod to Myrtle & Eunice

Greetings all,
Tania from
Myrtle & Eunice blog . . . lists 'crafty mischief' as her main game & my children are devotees to such cheek, especially those twins.  Here they are . . . they look innocent enough, waiting outside the house for me round up their siblings into the car.
 Sneakliy, they brought out a hat box filled with tiny softies which they had been making all weekend, & started positioning them in the tree, our only tree.
 They each have names, personalities & food preferences.  Smudge, for instance, likes strawberries - they were in the hat box too, with hobby fill stuck to them, mmmm.
No need to tell you what goes on during car trips & school holidays.  I'm thinking Smudge will be frisky & start breeding??  No need to wonder why my good scissors & darning needles keep disappearing, along with all my special threads. 
Um, should i assume that - the day after my middle girls softie bombed our solitary & leafless tree on the nature strip - the next door neighbours put up a 'For Lease' sign - it's just a coincidence right??  Want to be my neighbour??  More crafty mischief here, love Posie

Would love to be your nieghbour :-)

I was waiting for the part where the softies got thrown at you...... duh I am a smart one. I get it now though.

Cute doctor! And lovely tree. We only have three trees, but only one has leaves.... I am still waiting for the other two to show signs of life..... stupid bare rooted manchirian pears. Next time I shall pay more a buy a tree on a pot.... from a nursery.... and make sure it comes with a guarantee....

I hope your tree has leaves soon :-)

Ha! I am cheering wildly from the sidelines! And I'm sure the tree is feeling way less solitary...

PS. A note on the neighbours...
There was a specific request from my next doors, for me NOT to update our front tree in yarnbombed splendour in time for their auction. Hmn.
