I can show this now

Took Julias pressie round to her today, so now I can show you. It is a crochet hook roll, for her new hobby (well, possibly, she has a book on it!). On the front I embroidered mushrooms with cake on (of course), following my 6 year olds picture guidelines...she had seen my sketched ideas lying around, had coloured them in, then asked 'why are you drawing aliens Mum?'!!! So I thought it best she drew up new ones. Inside I put in a few hooks to start her off, with Fimo Mushroom ends - a great idea that I stole from my sister-in-law.

I had also given Julia a little green bird from the country living fair, and she had been on a shopping trip to cardiff, and bought me...a little green bird!!!

And I wanted to show you this picture that Esme drew yesterday during a visit from Nana and Grandpa, I found it once they had gone, and it makes me laugh each time I see it. Look at my Dads great angle, and his big feet!!!
