Goose spends a few days every school holidays with Granny for some pampering and one on one time.
(that unfortunately rarely happens at home with two demanding younger siblings).
They do lots and lots of fun things together, but one of their favourite things to do each time is a bit of crafting. A bit of cross generational handing down of the lost arts.
Last school holidays, you may remember, Goose made this lovely headband (above), all by herself on the sewing machine “with just a tiny bit of help from Granny”.
In other holiday adventures they have also made
- “with just a tiny bit of help from Granny” –
this gorgeous red cherry skirt
(note the specially made buttonsbyloulou headband to match).
and these fun rice bags –
just like the ones Granny made us when we were kids.
(You’ll like those Brenda)
And these holidays…
She really loves it.
She keeps the knitting bag at Granny’s to save it from younger siblings stealing and destroying
(and quite frankly Mum just doesn’t seem to find the time to help her).
“in, round, under, off… in, round, under, off…”
(she sang repetitively while I showed her the photos Granny took of her)
So, I may not be doing a lot of crafting myself at this particular juncture in my life, but I am very glad that my clever Goose is not missing out. Thanks Granny!
