Sewing with 'help'
It seems as if I've been sewing like mad for the craft stall at the school fete this coming Saturday, but when I look at my pile of things to donate it's not that big!!
This is due in part, I think, to:
A. my habit of daydreaming whilst sewing
B. too much blog surfing in between sewing - you people are too interesting and therefore distracting!
C. very limited kid-free time...
Which brings me to the art of squeezing in a bit of craft/sewing/anything whilst keeping an eye on the kids. You know how it goes... "stop fighting!", "turn the TV off!", "you've just had a snack!", "leave the cat's tail alone!" etc etc. Until a little person comes up and wants to help and everything comes to a grinding halt...
We ended up making these felt heart mobile things together, which I'd been wanting to try for a while anyway. The boy decided they'd make a good scarf. They do look pretty, but that pile of donations for the fete hasn't grown too much in a week :-)

In other news, the kids' grass heads have sprouted. Phew! My reputation is restored :-)
