A day full of fun

It’s been a busy day today. Woke up to grey skies and bucket loads of rain. We had to go pick up a parcel I missed yesterday, so we wrapped up in waterproofs and splashed in the puddles on the way to the post office! It was worth it tho, because inside my parcel was this beautiful macrame owl gifted from a friend
After making hot chocolates (complete with cream and mini marshmallows) to warm us up, we got on with the crafting! Lola actually chose to do some of her ‘Mathletics’ programme on the internet (?!), so Kiki decided she wanted to do some weaving. I set my peg loom up for her, showed her what to do and she was away! She hardly needed any help, and is very pleased with the results –

I kept myself busy sewing the straps on a top I made yesterday, and made myself a nice new bag, modelled here by Tallulah (is it wierd to name your mannequins??)

We had such fun today, singing along to the ipod whilst the rain pounded on the windows. Bliss :)

These 3 songs were ones the girls kept asking me to put back on over and over today –

    Tallulah is, I believe, a song of Tori Amos. And naming your mannequin gives her a bit of personality.
