Little Miss decided she wanted to print onto pegs instead of fabric and I found a £1 packet of wooden pegs, ink and stamps and this amused her for nearly 2 hours
Then she made some magnets out of these too.
Again little gifts from her for Christmas.
We are or should I say she is going to seal the ink on the pegs with PVA glue, stick magnet strips on the back and bundle them ready for Christmas gifts. She has been making hole punched tags for her gifts and we have a sparkly theme going on to...she has been using glitter on air drying clay and boy it seems to get everywhere, in our hair, under finger nails, on the floor and so it spreads, but I do love
it as well it reminds me of Christmas approaching .
I have this lot to finish off , and then I think apart from making some reindeer "food" for the fair I am
done. (Cheap porridge oats with glitter). Little man's school have asked if I will do a Christmas stall
again like last year....I hadn't planned to as they do a evening fair, but they said they really need stalls so I said I will have a think and let them know ...... Fund raising is so vital for these little schools and I have enough stuff made so I will give in I expect ha ha ha. It is nice to catch up with little man's teacher and teaching assistants at school fairs as we don't do the "school run" and last year we picked up a takeaway on the way home so DH said "we" should.
Last week when in Carmarthen I picked up this in Wilko and only £2 !!!
It is a mini Rudolph knitting
they had a few kits
on offer, but I liked the look
Of this one.
The kit contains the needles, wool and pattern
and the filling ..
I am currently knitting a hedgehog, so this may just have to wait a bit , but he is small and hopefully won't take too long.
The weather here is so windy and so muddy outside. I have had a catch up day with chores and paperwork and got to stay in all day . A few things to post tomorrow , a couple of things for overseas which I have been so late sending , ...never mind they are going tomorrow without fail! . Yesterday I bought some perle cotton at Cotton Patch to finish off the Santa hanging quilt and also to get some stitchery started . This evening I hope to finish the quilt now I have the right thread, still one small panel to finish too but again I needed the red thread to do that.
A Christmas swap arrived today... More about that next time and also some more finishes.
See you soon
