On Good Friday we were given a very large bag of apples and I decided to stew them. There were still some left on Easter Morning so I sat at the kitchen table to peel them and Maia sat with me. She drew the picture she saw - how cool is that?!
An impromptu picture for Mum - the kind I love the best!
The bag that was started here is almost finished - the button is yet to be sewn on. The girls were great and I thought they created really good bags. It's quite amazing just what children can do when given the right environment and encouragement.
More sewing. Amazing to think that Maia did all the sewing herself. At first I didn't know whether I should sit there besides her but then I knew that I would find it VERY hard to stop butting in so I left. Maia would call me when she had finished the bit she was working on and together we would look at the book and see what the next step was. I sewed on the brooch fastening on the back and cut out the small corners of the M but apart from that it is all "Maia Made"!
You might not know what this is! Maia asked if she could have a couple of zips and off she went. She made me a pencil case out of a zip, paper, felt tips and sellotape!!!
It now is now on my desk and houses a very special thing - a piece of glass I saw blown at Poole Pottery just before I got married! Who knew I needed just such a pencil case?!
