A sneak peek...


Last night I sat down and made this specifically to include as part of my 100th post giveaway.   I searched the internet high and low for a pattern for a cute owl but I came away with nothing!  So my tools for this included a round food container and two different sizes of buttons to trace around - thats it!  I actually enjoyed the hand stitching while watching a movie (was a pretty sad movie about a dyslexic boy who gets sent away to boarding school for being what they classed a trouble maker in class) and sipping my cup of tea.

Yay for kindy being back tomorrow too.  Although it's only about 8 hours a week, it's just enough to keep him from getting bored.  The last few days have seen a marked change in his play development.  He now 'goes to work', 'saves people stuck in trees' and 'has his own house in the tree' where he wants to sleep!  It's really cute to see him play this way and reminds me of my own childhood.  We used to live on a huge section in the bush and had 'houses' with steps leading to different 'rooms' and we worked on each room so they looked really cool - keeping them swept out.  That kept us busy for hours, I guess, and at least Mum knew we wouldn't leave the property without telling her.  Besides, if we did, it was a long trek just to get to the letterbox!

I had planned on reorganising the kitchen cupboards today but I think I might just put it in the 'too hard' basket.  Might be easier while Elijah is at kindy anyway.  Its a chilly old day here in Auckland so I might just do some more sewing!  Any excuse....
