We have been going a little sewing mad this week. A friend told me about a shop in Chester that sells wool felt – not the nasty acrylic kind!
Toby has had a little gnome production line going on – bodies sewn, hats made, heads stuffed, lavender in… We have a myriad of felty snippings all over the house!
Emily asked for a Unicorn, so out came the Rowan Kidsilk as nothing makes a better unicorn tail.
This little unicorn has gone everywhere with us. We had our first real spring morning yesterday. The air was warm and carried that distinct scent that only the spring can bring. So we packed ourselves up and headed for the Delamere Forest for an afternoon of exploring, listening to woodpeckers, twirling and foraging for fairy treasures.
We had a lovely time as we always do in the woods, away from the hustle and bustle and complications of the real world. Well, it was lovely, right up until Emily, a princess riding her magical unicorn was ambushed by Robin Hood who kept jumping out of the bushes to steal her gold (a collection of pretty stones in her foraging bag). At that point she had to ride on my back as Robin Hood couldn’t reach that high.
Has the Spring reached you yet? Maia has certainly been dancing her way through our local countryside!
Toby has also started his own blog , Diary of a Homeschooled Kid as he wanted to share his projects.
