Today was Ted’s first day of school.
I took him off this morning with his brand new new uniform, his school bag, his book bag, wellies and P.E kit… Thankfully most of it stays there until half term!
A while back Ted won an England hockey t shirt size 12-13 -it fit my husband and it was going to take a while for him to grow into it. So I decided it would make the perfect gym bag.
I turned it into a draw string bag, with the front and back of the T-shirt lined with red cotton.
Here he his this morning, modeling his new bag.
…and the verdict on school was it was great fun but when will we have P.E?
I love comments so don’t be shy, let me know what you think…
Ted starts school next week and we have been enjoying a nice break at home since he finished preschool.
We’ve rediscovered the garden & rescued a few toys who got themselves frozen..
We had adventures and played with friends..
We’ve built models..
But now I’m getting itchy and ready to stitch again! So this afternoon I got the sewing machine out and made Ted a wallet. We’ve recently started giving him some pocket money so now he has somewhere to carry it..
I actually messed up and the swirly fabric was meant to be the lining but I quite like & I unpicked quite a lot making this.. Clearly I’m out of practice!
Now the itch is scratched and I can enjoy our last few days with a preschooler!
Well I was a busy bee this week, making full use of my wrist feeling better!
I did a bit more work on my [Jacobean piece](http://www.suzical.co.uk/blog/abc-of-me/j-is-for), I should finish this one pretty soon..
I finally made up a new bag for Duncan:
I’m really pleased with it – this is the first pattern I’ve made up from scratch, and after two days it’s still not fallen apart 🙂
I made cards – this is the one for my sister’s anniversary that I mentioned a couple of weeks ago:
A birthday card for Will, I find making cards for boys a bit harder – you can’t really get away with flowers and butterflies 🙂
Luckily Will’s a big basketball fan, and I used my fool proof inspiration plan – Clip art!! 🙂
I often do a quick inspiration search on a lunch time at work and email the results to Duncan for printing..
I had to ring Hev to find out the right colour shorts and number..
This card was for a sick friend – the flower is detachable and can be used as a brooch ..
and finally, some coasters from my nephew – he’s 4 next week, starting early! He made them for all the family.
A flower for me and a hockey stick and ball for Duncan..
