hello friends,
I hope you had a lovely weekend, we had some snow and it lasted for about 15mins and it warmed up, I just don't understand this weather. I got so much done on the weekend, but still not caught up - I am getting my mom to help me sew the work for the spring craft show and on sunday I worked on my drawings and j will get them printed in a large format for me after he helps his sister move. I can't wait to show you these new images. lliam and piper is really enjoying using this small toy sewing machine, it was purchased by my brother at the annual textile museum yard sale and on our way home I asked for it for piper. he reluctantly gave it to me, it's in mint condition and still has the box - I think the kids like how it works and actually sews. you might notice that p is wearing nail polish - a new thing that she enjoys, kol kid sells non-toxic water based ones, that comes off in the bath.
happy monday! xxa
