Yay, school holidays are here at last.My three have been ready to break up for weeks now.
We've had such good weather whilst they were at school it makes me think the holidays should start sooner to take advantage of the longest days ,when it's hard to get them to come in and go to bed anyway.
Having said that I do think six weeks off is enough ,so I suppose I can't have it both ways.
We got all the flower brooch cards finished last night .I made 7 flowers in total.The one we gave last week and a further 6 today as I didn't want to miss out teaching assistants and other helpers. This is what they looked like.........
Hopefully they will like them. Making things for people is always a lot of a gamble.
Last year I made a really nice peg bag for a good friend.I wish I had taken a photo of it. It was in a pretty floral fabric with pink gingham lining,ric-rac trim and a crochet flower.
Last week I was visiting her house and saw it on the washing line, it had obviously been left out all winter and was now a faded grey mess !
I was a little hurt ,I must admit ,but I suppose that's going to happen sometimes.
One of the flowers is a poppy....
I made up this pattern myself as I couldn't find one I liked online.
It is for the lovely teacher of my youngest. She organises a remembrance day service each November for the childern to take part in.So moving ! I'm filling up now,thinking about it.
Oh dear,didn't mean this to be a depressing post !!I'm shattered after a stressful day at work.
I'll feel soooo much better after a lie in tomorrow :0)
