For the past week the girls (little girls, not the wine drinkin
g fun to be around girls) have been begging to have a craft session and I have been stalling them. Firstly my creative space looks like a technicolour dumping ground and secondly I am lazy. Today would have been the perfect opportunity to craft with the girls but they were busy playing fashion shows and drawing pictures as I procrastinated about being domestic. It wasn’t until I was getting dinner ready that they remembered that they wanted to craft. They are becoming masters of negotiation and somehow I was convinced to let them all craft after dinner. OK, so I am a sucker and gave in easily.
As you can see, girl-child has a stunning technique when it comes to cutting fabric – tongue out and twisted. Of course there was precision and accuracy with all of the cutting. It should be interesting to see how the projects turn out, they are making Wheat Bag Softies from the Meet Me At Mikes book. I will post photos of their crafty goodness if they ever finish them.
The 3 girls (girl-child who is 5, a neighbour who is 10 and a 14 year old exchange student) all had a great crafty time. As they were busy further destroying having fun and creating in my study area, man-child was helping a friend move furniture. Without any prompting or intervention boy-child put himself to bed! Fingers crossed he will sleep-in in the morning…
