One day when I sew something tricksy and pushing my comfort zone and involving more than a half available half hour (and no doubt, multiple zips, purse frames and Vliesofix tape), I’m going to tell you about my newly-acquired, fantabulous sewing machine. In the meanwhile, I found a half available half hour and dipped a toe in the sewing water and knocked up an easy peasy sundress. Now the Small is clad in something newly Mama-made, which was absolutely and entirely the main point of things.
Even though it could do with a good, soften the fabric-type wash, it has survived a day of gymnast-style manoeuvres
and backyard pottering
and general giggle-silly.
In other Sunday news, the Mr gave bagel-making a whirl.
Thoroughly tested (demolished) within fifteen minutes of oven removal. SERIOUS YUM.
In further news, the leafy stick insects are growing in size and in number. Thirty? Maybe forty with some recent hatchings?
Even though we’re all besotted with every single one of them, a house extension, purely to accommodate a possible 347 stick insects is, sadly, not an option. We’ve been busy interviewing (grilling) potential adoption candidates and performing police checks and stuff.
Hope your weekend has been all about good smells coming out of ovens with a bit of giggle-silly...
