Strike a pose...

Wednesday is my non-working day, so no Strike action for me, but the school was closed, so I have had (mostly-unwelcome) company!

I cleared out their wardrobes of tiny and worn out clothing, getting them to try on all sorts and snipping off buttons in the process; I moved piles of birthday pressies into manageable boxes and took down their cards to make way for the Christmas ones that will no doubt start arriving from tomorrow; and then we spent an unpleasant hour in Tesco - I love my children, but...

So far I have not stitched a thing, but I have major plans for this evening; last night I finally, FINALLY worked out what I could, should and will be making...


I love how this prototype turned out; the obvious choice was staring me in the face all along!

  1. Sorry the little ones are not being very co-operative on your non working day, but there is always bed time to look forward to, (and teenage years when they take themselves off like mine does!) Love the owl, it's just perfect!

  4. Love the owl. And you should have sent your kids over to me. I would have set them to work in the kitchen. Worked with my lot.

  5. Love the owl. And I feel the Tesco pain, I endure it every Weds with E after Montessori. Although since taking the "embrace the pain" approach with with her it is not quite as stressful. But all my fruit comes home bruised every week, thanks to her overenthusiastic item-fetching skills.

    As for the kids.... Is locking them in their rooms for a few hours, frowned upon these days? :)
