This week has been up and down. The pithy, easy to recount lows being a dodgy handbrake leading to a car stuck in the mud, and an escaped snake - again! And the corresponding highs - a very helpful neighbouring farmer who towed said car out of the mud, and a snake finally (after 3 days!) back in the tank! (And that sentence really does not begin to do justice to the efforts we went to in order to retrieve that stupid snake!) Another, not to be underestimated, high was Theo washing his own PE/Games kits of his own accord - straight from bag to washing machine and then, drum roll please, also hung up to dry, with absolutely no prompting from me at all. Those with teenage boys (girls too?) may appreciate the enormity of this. I think perhaps it may be connected with the escaped snake and his extreme contriteness at the snake-on-the-loose stress it caused!
Anyway, in amongst these ups and downs, and the many others too long winded and boring to recount, not a lot of sewing has happened. But I still have a couple more deer cushions to share.
A simple silhouette...
And the same silhouette, but also with simple circles sewn onto it...
Christmas is now under a month away, and my Christmas Fair is just a week away - aaagh! I'm off to sneak in a bit of making!
PS I actually did a bit of dreaded 'Black Friday' shopping yesterday! Big Little are having a sale over on Etsy all weekend, 30% off with the code BLACK, so if you fancy making some pixie hats or wild thing scarves as Christmas presents, then now's the time to go and buy the pattern. Very quick, easy makes! I might have just bought the slippers, childrens' cape, and possibly even a grown up coat pattern too!
