Something Crafty

Over the last few months, I may have been busy moving house, organising tradesmen and squeezing our worldly possessions into this tiny house ....
but that hasn't meant my sewing machine has been lying in dust ( okay half truth! it may have layer )
Nor have my knitting needles been sitting idle...

The week before christmas I was busy occupying my friends dining room table, as I hastily sewed these christmas pressies below for the boys, plus a set of summer pjays pants to match...

These art journals hold all their art supplies,  in the center there is pockets for their erasers, sharpeners etc... and space for a ruler and a A5 pad.  And either side as you can see below is space for pencils and a A4 writing or drawing pad which slots into a pocket.

These journals, the pyjama's, the hacky sacks, and a set of popsicle stick bow and arrows, were the only christmas presents from Mike and I.... and surprisingly they were really grateful..... and since then I am happy to report they get alot of use, especially from my budding artist... Big J... see below
 all those drawings are from memory :)

He makes me proud!
Looks like he will be another artist in our family.

Oh and on another note... looks like I have caved in and will be participating in the KCWC challenge this coming week....
Thanks goes out to Juliet for giving me nudge!! :)
