This week we have been busy doing a bit of this....

Kalem and Talia were very proud of these pictures made from foam sticker kits, bought very cheaply from Kmart. You would not believe how much mess they made doing these, but it's NOT about the mess it's about the FUN!!!

There was also a bit of this, painting on their very first canvas, I love to see my little artists at work.

....and even a bit of this from me! Last week we went for a picnic with a friend and her boys. This friend is pregnant and she looked fantastic, really glowing. I never glowed at all through any of my pregnancies, I was mainly just a lovely shade of green! Anyway my beautiful friend looked so lovely that I was inspired to make this felt doll in her image. Actually she's not quite that pregnant, she doesn't have pink hair and hmmm she also has facial features. Okay so not quite in her image but INSPIRED by her image. I am going to give it to her as a pressie next time I see her. Hope she likes it..... Photo's are not that great, don't quite show the gorgeous turquoise and orange colours, photography is definitely not my thing!!!!

Hope all you kiwi mama's are enjoying (surviving) the school hols.......... XX

This looks like great fun and I adore your little pregnant lady, I feel sure your friend will as well. What a lovely gift to hair was the best choice :-)

Looks like a whole lotta fun!

(Just a hint with your camera when trying to take a photo of a particular thing - like your pregnant lady - you need to pop the micro button on - it probably is a flower icon, this will then focus on the thing closest to the camera and then your shot should be clear...)

The pregnant doll is just beautiful - how on earth did you make it? It's fantastic and you are very clever! xx

oh yes - I'd love to see a post on how to needle felt with photos etc - it would be great to see how you made such a wonderful little figure. It is gorgeous btw!

looking forward to seeing your tutu too! Did you get the pattern online for one? I remember just seeing a tutu tutorial somewhere - it looked pretty.

you are rather talented, you know X

Your fairy is called Tangle Saturnwand
She is a trouble maker.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.
