a day at home...

i kept my middle child home from school today as she has been complaining of a sore ear and aches for the last few days. i assured her that we would not be having fun, in fact it was mopping day and 4 loads of washing had magically appeared. she was happy to help out or mooch whatever grabbed her fancy. while the baby was sleeping she asked if she could sew a babushka doll, so i sketched the outline on some felt and she has been stitching ever since. i will sew it up with a cute backing fabric and she can have it for a cuddle toy.
her stitching is really coming along.
she chooses all the colours herself.
careful not to prick herself.
i will be back with the end product later.

  1. That is such a great idea for little ones!

  2. Sweet Rosey,
    I so remember when my daughter was young, we would make up all sorts of things..Such a fond time to me.. As she has gotten older,it has taken a back seat to all her other hobbies.. But, I know someday, she will come and makes things with Momma again..Her stiches look so good.. You're a good teacher Rosey !! Have a splendid evening.. hugs to you.. ~~tea~~

  3. How cute she is.I hope she gets feeling better.I hope its not the flu.Cant wait to see the end result.

  4. Fantastic! It is great you are able to foster such Aristic flair for her.
    And what a clever cookie she is!
