Turning practice into something useful
I am one of those mad people who woke up at 5.30am to go to the Sainsburys half price toy sale, so I'm flagging a little and could do with being tucked up in bed.
My goodness, I cant believe half of those toys were ever full price, people were goimg mad filling their trollys to the brim with overpriced plastic. I spent a grand total of £12, buying operation to play with the kids on Christmas day and a couple of packets of moon dough for their stockings as well as some bath squirters.
I havnt a clue what to get my 5 year old as her main present. Im very reluctant to get the latest vtech innotab, I'm not a big fan of introducing electronic games at such a young age and I'm reluctant to beleive its educational which is how its being marketed. Any ideas what you will be getting your kids this year?
As its half term, I havnt been able to craft much, but I did have a rare day off from the children yesterday so I managed to baste my children at play quilt and get in some much needed stippling practice before I commit to stippling the entire quilt.
So I decided to turn my practice peices into place mats for the kitchen as I havnt been able to find any plain ones. I now feel ready to stipple a quilt, wish me luck!
