Weekends for me are all about playing with the kids and planning my creative projects.
I have two sock monkeys to be finished a memory bear all ready for sewing and a couple of dressmaking projects. I have been promising to make some denim dungarees for my best friends little boy for months.
I just need to lay the pieces out and cut them. I always start with copying the pattern pieces on to new pattern paper so I can keep and reuse the original pattern. This actually takes quite a lot of time. I have a blog post planned for this process. Meanwhile job number 1 is the memory bear.
It’s a beautiful brightly coloured set of clothes so it should become a lovely bright bear.
I also need to get my baking note book out and find my gingerbread recipe.
I found this cute gingerbread man lego person. Someone sent me a link on Facebook to reindeer gingerbread heads made from gingerbread man cookie shape so I plan to have a go.
This weekend it’s also remembrance Sunday so we will be going to our local cenotaph to watch the laying of the wreath. I think it’s important to remember all those who have given their lives so we can live ours in peace.
