Alex has been great fun in the evenings. He has really got into playing with his bricks at the moment, emptying them all over the sitting room floor, trying to build towers..three high is his record, knocking my towers down, putting bricks into and out of their box and generally carrying them around. This evening was the first time the weather has been nice enough to go outside this week so he went for a quick run around the garden before bed and we played peek-a-boo in the wigwam.
Much of my free time has been spent researching my article on inchies...I need to finish it by the end of next week! However, I have managed to do a little crafting in the form of mounting my Oriental inchies into a frame. Surprisingly it took ages to get them all lined up. They look great framed as a little set and I am really pleased with them. Imagine how cool 100 inchies would look all together as an overall collage!
Anyone who knows me will know how much I hate sewing (I take all my mending down to Somerset to my Gran!), so imagine my surprise when I found myself responding to a friends challenge to make a fabric inchie. I found this really hard, but did come up with two designs onto a background of felt. Unfortunately the stitching is a bit all over the place so I am not sure I like them much, but you need to try things at least once. I don't know that I will ever make another one, but at least I can say I have tried now! Have a great bank holiday weekend everyone, lets hope there is some sun.
