Yesterday was Rosie’s birthday. She and Dan had a great day out at the Making of Harry Potter …..
Although I did help her learn to drive, I do not think this particular driving technique was included in her tuition! They had a great time, and Rosie came home with her very own Dumbledore wand. Sadly I do not think waving it will help me finish tidying my work room! But I have made a good start…..
My cupboard has been sorted out and look ! You can see the carpet, which is quite a novelty! Charlie the Patchwork Elephant presides proudly over my well-organised space and the chair with the blanket is my computer desk chair. Behind the closed door is my sewing area – but I am afraid this is not at all sorted and tidied yet, so is certainly far too messy to show (I am ashamed). Instead let’s sit at my desk …
A few familiar projects – my one remaining Cotton Spool Mouse (the others found kind new homes) – but I did discover one kit when I was tidying – please do email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like it – $15 plus postage. Then there’s my Fabric Deer Head and the Bustle & Sew Calendar too. Up on the shelf over my desk is the lovely little Japanese doll my Dad brought home from one of his many overseas trips when I was just a little girl…. loved and treasured for many years. And my little polar bear embroidery …..
all in French knots – I spent many happy hours in the gazebo one summer creating this sleepy young fellow – when Ben was young ….
Aaaahhhh.. so cute, so small – and, even then, so (just a little bit) slobbery! It’s been quite a few birthdays since Ben was that small!
