Yesterday Alice and Hamish decided to get stuck in in the allotment,helping plant potatoe's at least I think you could call it helping.
Hamish look's to be stood dishing out the order's to his big sister and brother,he must be the foreman.
Alice about to pop a potatoe into the ground.
And now preparing to cover it with a little compost,this is her posing for the camera.
And today mother's day I spent most of it sewing!Now remember that I told you I was making a leaving gift for Alice's teacher,who love's pink and yellow well it's finished and I must say I'm quite pleased.
I started by making a crazy patchwork hanging heart and used some machine embroidery to quilt it,then I thought what more useful than a note book with fabric cover and finally Alice was quite insistant that her teacher really needed a pencil case to which I replied "don't be silly all teacher's have a pencil case".But on enquiring with her teaching assistant she said Alice was quite right the teacher's pencil case was looking a little worse for wear.So that was me told by my 5 year old daughter.
And of course my mother's day gift chosen by Alice this beautiful little house plant in a stripey box and a fruit cake made by DH.Mmmm!
