My creative Mum

My Mum is a bit amazing - she is not only the mother of SIX kiddies but an author in her own right.

She has also taught us all how to sew and here is some pics of items that she has recently made for Hj

Hj recently started walking and of course Mum got inspired and wrote this:

Little Sister

My little sister has robot legs

stiff steps her first walk taking,

how she comes so quickly

plunging down the hallway

to my room.

She's the height of first cupboard shelf

and her hands are more super hero-

fast pulling and choosing

the best of my pencils

to draw robot whirs

on my cupboard door.

Sister & Mum Sewing Afternoon

I spent a lovely afternoon with my Mum & one of my sisters R - making things - I hopped on Mum's machine as mine is at the doctors to try and get Kd's library bag ready for his first day of pre-school on Thursday. Got a whole heap of hand sewing to do to get the bias binding down - keep sitting on the computer instead of in my studio!

Above is Chell making a bug with four tricky legs - can't wait to see how it turned out.

I love this drawing R found at an op shop - it is from the top of a puzzle and all the puzzle pieces are still intact!

bunny boy

This week my train project was sewing up this little bunny for a friend who has just given birth to her first child. The pattern was from a free download from Hillary Lang.

Good fun - a few problems; didn't quite stuff it to the gills as Hillary instructed and also I left the gap to stuff it at the bottom of the bunny, when it should have been the side - this makes for problems standing the bunny up!

I hope he eats all those weeds up in my garden.
