Yes, I did leave her with the scissors while I went to collect the camera. Later she actually had the blade of my very sharp fabric scissors in her mouth!
PS the fabulous quilt Moonshine is sitting on was made for Rainbow by her Auntie Rosie. Moonshine has one too. They are such fun handy quilts to have around. I often go out with one draped over my handbag and Moonshine will often bring hers out to play Lego or do jigsaws on.
Day jobs* tracing patterns
* pinning patterns
* cutting big pieces
* machine sewing
Night jobs - cosy in my armchair by the heater
* ironing seams
* cutting small pieces
* pinning big pieces
* hand sewing
At the moment I have more night jobs than day jobs as I have had a few early nights. I've also decided to put everything on hold and sew a pair of overalls for our cold trip south for the long weekend. I have to have it done by Thursday. Only thing is I haven't brought the pattern out (of Moonshine's sleeping study) so I can't start today. Not sure if that is realistic as it's not a fiddly project but it is lengthy.
I narrowly escaped a parking fine this morning. (VENT - I'm a rates payer but can only park for free from 9- 11 and 3 - 8. Which means to go in after Moonshine's morning sleep means I have to pay for parking. VENT finished!) Anyway I was 15 minutes late back to find an inspector writing a ticket. Thankfully he saw me, with Moonshine in the sling and pushing Rainbow in the pram with the other arm and felt sorry for me. I'm very very grateful as my not particularly successful op shopping trip would have been poorly offset by a $25 fine. So thank you, thank you thank you.
My not so successful op shopping trip.
* winter size 0 clothes for Moonshine - nothing. I did get her a couple of cute summer things.
* black embroidery cotton - nothing
* crappy toys to distract bored children in the car. I spent $7 and got some plastic little toys for Moonshine to explore. A magnetic book with magnets for Rainbow (and 1 for her cousin) and 3 Pinocchio jigsaws. Not sure if this is good value. It will eventually all end up back in a collection bin - kind of like a loan system.
