If you are in the U.K. today you only need to look out the window to understand the title of my post…it’s so dark and grey today, so to cheer myself and you up how about a colourful post. First up a picture that my DD2 wanted me to share with you. Like many children her age she is in full bloom loom band making mode. She has made 13 bracelets, several little creatures and a dragon with over 300 bands alone… A great fad that seems to have taken kids by storm that not only has got them off the computer but got them creating. I love it!
I have also been sewing up a storm getting things ready for the upcoming school year. With DD2 heading to high school and needing to carry a lot more stationery I figured a new and improved pencil case was in order. So I dug out the old patterns and settled on the Sew Together Bag. When I made mine last year, my poor sewing machine grumbled at the final thick seam, but this time I had Sookie to help me out and she breezed through without so much as a grumble or a pop.
DD2 picked her own colours and I followed along and you know what? Her colours are FAB together. I love the pinks and the use of greens (what a combo) and the colour coordinated pockets. With such a great system she should stay very organized.
Until next time...♥
