The lovely Gypsy arrived with freshly made chocolate slice (hmmm don't seem to have a pic of the pieces she left here...) and two very sweet boys who had a lovely time playing all day with my three girls. (very hard to get a pic of all five of them...)
No sewing was done, though a number of future sew-along project days were discussed!
There was only the application of a couple of snaps and the chance to play with the snap press, with a view to, said cohort, getting one for herself.
Truth be told it was a mini-matchmaking exercise, they're never too young for that are they??
And as Bec pointed out after seeing the look on the face of the man-of-the-house in this pic - it would be easier to marry off a few in one go wouldn't it? *
We lunched on this...
Then they selected appropriate cool weather outdoor gear (which of course included a Curlypops Super hero headband, a sparkly cape, fairy wings and a footy jumper!) and we went to visit/terrorise the local ducks.
All-in-all a really lovely way to spend a day.
* (please know that I write this with tongue firmly-planted-in-cheek, marrying off my children is not one of my major life goals for me or them!)
PS - normal sewing chatter will resume shortly - the machine has actually been humming quite a bit!
