I know I’m a crafter, so this title in itself is rather unexpected. However, our Alice has been unwell really for a few weeks now, but she’s finally given in to being fully blown ill and is currently enjoying / enduring some restful time off school.
This has meant I am now totally behind with my preparations for Halloween and Christmas, but that’s the life of a crafting Mum! So today I decided to find something for both of us to do that would help lift Alice’s spirits and maybe go some way to starting my stash of Christmas decorations.
I’ve been thinking about making some simple, no knit hat decorations for a while and this seemed the ideal opportunity with a willing helper too! What I wasn’t counting on was how much she loved making them.
We had such a great crafty afternoon watching ‘Equestria Girls’ on dvd and making these hats, that she decided she wanted to make them and sell them too. So it rather turned into me being her assistant and she’s planning on taking her little stash to her dance class at weekend and maybe even to the school Christmas Fair! I’m hoping that she will make her own gifts for her teachers this year too.
I think she may have caught the crafting bug – much better than the virus she is recovering from.
