First of all thank you all so very much for your get well wishes for the kiddies and myself. Fingers crossed we are germ free BUT Mark fell yesterday in school and hurt his foot lol
It never rains but it pours!! He seems OK today. Its not swollen or in pain. I think he is just scared of walking to far or much in case he falls over again! he crashed into someone else in the playground at lunch time!!
Well I think what i am doing is a great idea lol
You know I love to read and stitch well I am a reader that has no stitched bookmark!!
Now that should be a criminal offence lol!!
I have used a scrappy piece of paper and have done for a while so I thought ...
"Stitch yourself a bookmark woman"
I started the other evening but didn't get much done with Cara not being well. I sat for a short while this evening and did some more.
|A bookmark for me!|
I hope to finish it tomorrow and then Mr Pooh Bear can sit in my new book and guard the pages lol
|New book with half a stitched bookmark|
They look well together!!
Mind you Katie spotted me stitching Pooh Bear and guess what she said? Oh I bet you cant guess lol
"Mummy can I have a Pooh Bear Bookmark for my school reading books please" Now how could I refuse such a lovely request!!
Today in the post I got all the details on Josephine, the little girl we are sponsoring Now have an address to send her some letters and small gifts if we which too. The kiddies are going to draw her some pictures. I'll stitch her a little something for a keepsake. The kiddies suggested a rag doll or teddy for her which I think is a great idea.
It is also her Birthday in May and she will be 5 years old so we are thinking of a little something that we can send. Large gifts aren't allowed to be sent but trying to think of something small that will get all the way over to Zambia in one piece is tricky! The things we take for granted really do make the simple everyday objects hard to think of!!
I also received my Winter Exchange in the post today and i am over the moon with it and thats all Im allowed to say .... for now!!
Well Im off to refesh myself with a chapter of my OU course book then get my essay finished off :-)
Nighty Night all
Take care and keep safe
