Hugo's Hanger finished

Have had a shocker of a headache since Sunday (related to the craft fair being over for another year?!) and woke this morning feeling just terrible. Said to Daz, you'll have to stay home and look after the girls as there was no way I could function being a Mum today. Luckily he did and after dropping Grace off at kindy he returned home with some supa drugs for my head which seemed to do the trick! Managed to feel well enough to do some hand sewing later on and finally finished Hugo's hanging. "Wow! Looks cool Mum!" Grace said when she returned home from kindy. Cool? Where did she pick up that word? She is picking up things so fast at the moment. Our latest thing we do together is "sewing"! Which consists of me sitting at the machine or cutting material, and she sits on the floor at my feet and either cuts up scraps of material I pass down or I give her a big needle threaded with a strand of DMC knotted and she sews them all together, just one stitch each! This one here pictured is a toy she made for one of the girls at MG who is due in 3 weeks (Meredith if you are reading don't tell Jo!) She hasn't cut herself or stabbed her hand with the needle yet, so all is well in our sewing room this week.

Helen love the gift you have made Hugo, it's cool!. make sure you tell Grace her toy is wonderful too. Must be the age because Charlotte is quite keen to "sew" as well. In fact she told me today she was going to make clothes for her kids but they would be better than mine LOL.

That's so cute! I am now duly inspired and perhaps may start on one myself.
