Happy 2014

We love Toca Boca apps, the kids send you their greeting card to you all!

The whole of December has rushed by and it is new year already. As well as all the christmas plays, pantos, fairs, discos and eating we have been renovating our two main bedrooms so the house has been topsy turvey and we have been sleeping in the guest room for about a month. Now Stokie Bloke has thrown us out of the living room and we are squashed in the playroom with all the toys, keyboard, and even a wooden giraffe!

Just before all this madness I managed to finally finish the dining chair covers. it has only taken me about 9 months to get 6 chairs covered! Here are some work in progress and the finished items!

 
 

I also managed to make some boys bow ties for xmas presents though not completely finished as i couldnt get the hardware in time. Modelled here by the boy! He even wore one to the school disco;his friend said he looked like James Bond. The pattern was very easy, from an Edition of Mollie Makes.

 

Post disco haze.....

I gave some Helleborus niger or christmas roses as presents to friends this year. It is one of my favourite plants. Happy New Year.
