Kids Creating

Yesterday I recieved the loveliest stash of fabrics from sister in Wagga. One of the fabric shops there had ALL fabrics for $10 a metre. I asked her to pick a bunch of what she thinks I might like. Well I must say I love all of them and wish I could have been there to buy more....or is that just being greedy?

Rosa thought they were pretty special too, in no time she had dolly covered in the whole lot ready for a sleep on the office floor.

A little bit of indoor painting was on the agenda last week. Rosa was supposed to be sleeping but heard Harvey and I setting up, she can now jump the cot so there was no stopping her. I figured I could duck away for a bit of blogging (as you do!)

Only to return to find this. Two little green monsters. Maybe I should have also taken a photo of the green bath that Harvey desperately wanted to save to show Charlie.

Harvey found this little nest which had fallen on the ground at his pre school, he was so excited to bring it home and tell his big brother. They skipped afternoon tea and went straight outside to find whatever they could to tie it onto the tree. Materials used were sticky tape, twine, sticks, rubber tire strips and long grass. They are hoping a bird will discover it and lay some eggs in there. I think I might have to put some chocolate eggs in there, I'm sure that would be almost as exciting!


  1. Gorgeous fabrics! My favourites are the bottom two patterns. Rosa is such a pretty little thing - love those curls!! Love the photo of your two 'green monsters' - so cute!!

  2. Great additions to the stash! You are a brave woman letting the kids unleash with paint!!
