OK! OK!

Well I won't go then................lol How lovely it was to hear that you don't want me to go. Well I cant promise a regular blog but I will try for a monthly one.

Firstly I have been so busy helping out at the High school and Primary school. The little ones have been doing 4 weeks on craft. The teacher wanted to show them some 'Olden day' crafts. Now we think back to the horse and cart days but these poor little ones think 'olden days' is when their parents were children...................lol.... We soon put them straight. We went on an excursion to an olden day school farm. The children got dressed up in prairie clothes and had to attend class with Mr Grumpy, who acted out the old time school class routine. They had a lot of fun as well as learning how different it was back then.

I have been doing a church doll with them, they made clay marbles, a wooden plane, french knitting and finger knitting. It has been so much fun. They are showing their crafts in assembly on Friday.

.........................................

Little one needed a new ballet wrap so after much hunting for a new one, unsuccessfully, I scanned her old one and made a new pattern from that...............I have never done anything so bizzare before but look how it turned out. It cost me $4.49. I am so pleased with it and so is little one, as it is her 'dance school' colours.



..................................................
Steven, little one and I have also been making 'pin toppers'. They are so much fun. It does pay to read the label though before you buy the sculpey. I thought I was buying white but it was actually transparent. That is why some look a bit strange. But they came out ok.
Stevie's toadstool and cup cake
Little Ones pin toppers................she so clever.
done with transparent even though it looked white to begin with.....silly me. I was making a cupcake but it turned into an icecream.

Teapot and cup done with real white.....hehehe
The cakes are done with the transparent. It starts off white though.
.........................................
And lastly pop over to Claire's Craft room as I made her sewing machine apron which was in this months Handmade mag. Clare has a pic of it on her blog along with some others. The pattern was so clear to understand and was just what I was looking for. She does some beautiful work.
Any way thats it my friends.
Until next time........Take care
Jules

Hi Jules, I'm the Teresa (not the other Tereasa) who made the block keeper! (she passed the message onto me!) I am seriously thinking of posting the tutorial, but I am heading off to Melbourne for a week, so I will be MIA for a little while. Just thought I'd let you know... and by the way.... glad you decided to stay in blogland!
