Holiday stitches!

During the holidays our place is always visited by lots of kids from the neighbourhood.

This is Bridget who is making a very cute book mark for her Mum.

She has drawn the picture herself and is now happily embroidering it.

So simple and so adorable. One book mark ready to take home to Mum.

This is my daughter Jessica's artwork and embroidery. She is only 6 so this has taken a little while and needed a little help but what a great job she has done.

We then decided to make it into a pillow for her bedroom. i cut the pieces out and Jess sewed them together on the machine.

These photos were taken on our holiday at the Blue Mountains. Obviously the kids were keen to use there new Christmas presents everywhere they went.

Very graceful Jess!

Why is everything always a race?

Not sure if they should really be skating n scooting in the beautiful rose park? But sure was fun.

What a great and exhausting holiday the Cooks have had. I think i will spend the first few days of school going back recovering - and cleaning the house. The joys of motherhood.

Till next time. X Elizabeth.
