We went to the Fairies for a birthday party yesterday and the girls had so much fun..
They were mesmerised by Rainbow Fairy, she was so fairyfabulous.
They danced and sang to lots of songs in the beautiful Fairy Garden. They also got to paint a plaque for the garden with Barnaby on it. When we came home they were exhausted, they had some dinner after a play and then I got them ready for bed. They fell asleep before I finished reading them their story. I went past their room half and hour later and found No2 DD asleep like this below. She must have got up and put on her Fairies Party hat before falling fast asleep. I carefully took it off and put it next to her bed.
She must have had so much fun she had to wear it to sleep. So Cute…
Then today we did this!
Sewing, sewing sewing... and with the new machine they got for Christmas...and sewing with mummy is always a treat for them, they love it….. So today we made start on their first ever quilt.
They choose the project to do and it was a baby quilt for their dolly’s. They chose the fabric (Moda sampler 2 1/2” squares) and set them in the design they wanted. Basic squares with a plain border. Then to sew... no fingers to close to the needle.
They very carefully sewed and concentrated. Sitting on mummy's chair with mummy looking over our shoulders. They sewed all 5 strips of their dolly quilts together today.... Mummy was needing a cuppa after a few hours of watching...he he. Tomorrow we will stitch the rows together. How much fun and mummy will have to quilt it for them.....
I love showing my girls my love of sewing and hope they continue to enjoy it too. I hope to keep encouraging them to be Sew-ers.. As they say "mummy we are Sew-ers like you"
