In nursery we have interviewed parents of new children until today, when the older ones returned. This morning nursery had 10 children and this afternoon 8! It was lovely-quiet, and with time to really get into what we were doing. Some built a snowman, then later a snow castle. We rearranged an area of the classroom that is not working well, and this afternoon I worked with Ronnie and Michael as they made junk modelling castles. We had hot chocolate and biscuits too (not healthy I know, but cosy-and left over from the party last term!) Is it a salt? Is it a sugar? No it is a snow. (silly Ali G film about science on my mind here!)
Cute isn't she with her little multilink eyes.
Wondering which fabric to use for a doll, and also wondering whether to take part in One World One Heart this year. I would love to but it is coming up very soon and I don't know if I can fit in making something for it. Hmmm.
This is the door to the hall. I have fixed two hooks into the frame and hung up this fleecy fabric curtain to cut out the draft from the front door. It has made such a difference already! We should probably get an actual door there, but I like this solution for now.
I made another little lantern using stick on tape-it took about five minutes and looks pretty I think. I stapled a doodle into a cylinder too to make another one. So quick-suits my impatient nature. The third one is just plain.
My trusty sewing machine in action. I have had it for about twenty five years I think, though it went for a long time not being used. I am making two more tall skinny cloth dolls to keep this one company. If I get on with it quickly enough I will do OWOH. If not then so be it.
View of the shelf in my, what shall I call it?-studio-ha ha!, spare room, junk room, guest room-again ha ha! Back room. Sewing room. Box room. (I have an oil painting of boxes hanging on the outside of the door-from a charity shop years ago. So maybe box room is the best-it does have a lot of boxes in it) Crafty stuff storage room. Who knows, but if I didn't have it I suppose I would have to store the crafty stuff elswhere so I am grateful! I love these see through boxes. They stack, are pretty sturdy, and can be crammed quite full. I do dream of storage such as that found in this catalogue though.
