I have so much catching up to do around here, but first, The Girl has been doing some hand sewing.
I ran a session at our kids Woodcraft Group last week and we made bats, spiders and rats from this book (don’t believe those reviews it’s excellent) and yesterday she finished off her rat (it needed ears sewing on) and embroidered fangs onto the spider that she made three years ago. It is now named Fang.
Her rat came out much better than my demonstration one, which looks like some kind of mutant Clanger. Hey ho.
And that is it for my Halloween sewing. They are concocting their own costumes out of bits they already have, hoorah. And obviously, they chose their costumes themselves, just like CJ quite rightly advocates.
