Rebe's been listening to the Famous Five. I had given her a tape a few weeks ago and she has listened to it non-stop. Today we made a trip to the library where she asked the librarian to help her find some more tapes. To her delight they had loads and she chose 2 of them. She's up in her room now happily listening to their adventures and making things.
Joa's been doing lots of walking
It's Rebe's birthday in a couple of days and I have been working on a couple of things for her. She absolutely loves the patchwork dress I made (see sidebar for details), in fact she loves it so much I have to sneak it away to wash it, it is a 'she' and is called 'Patchy'. So I thought I would try and make her another dress she would love as much:
It's made from an upcycled t-shirt of Rebe's and an old cot sheet of Joa's. One of the things Rebe loves about Patchy is how comfortable she is (I do feel mental talking about a dress like this!) so I wanted to use cotton interlock/t-shirt material. I dyed the fabric dark green, sewed one bit to the other and added the Peter Pan and Tinker Bell motif.
