New friends

Here are some new, much loved friends we spent our time with on the weekend.

Isaiah spent much of the weekend in the box with the chickens he inherited from his daycare.  They were hatched at daycare and the kids enjoyed watching them grow for a couple of weeks.  The kids were allowed to take them home.  We ended up with two that were left without homes.  Isaiah was so excited to bring them home.  They spent the weekend in the box in the laundry. They are now outside in the chicken pen and are visited at least once a day.  They seem happy with their bigger space.  I'm just hoping they are girl chickens so they enjoy a long life on the farm.

More Pink...

I had a few scraps left after making these pillows so I decided that a cute little matching flag banner would make the perfect birthday present and complete the set off nicely.  I had great fun making these. Using up every last little scrap I had, playing with the stitches on my machine and not having to buy anything - all sourced from my supplies.  Makes for a great, quick and easy (last minute) present.

When I hung them on the wall in our room for the pictures, they looked so good I've decided that I need to make some for myself one day, but not in pink.  If you know me - you know I don't do pink!!

I wrapped them around a cylinder for easy postage and even sewed the gift tag on!

Happy Birthday Nozipho.

After swimming

We have just been swimming at Nan's pool - a short 3 min walk from our house.  While I was getting changed into dry clothes, I heard the boys bedroom door shut.  I went to check what was happening a few minutes later and found this.
