My Creative Cohort

I missed joining in "My Creative Space "this week because one of my creative cohorts and her kids came over to 'play'.

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.
Thanks Gypsy.

* (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!

Looks like you all had a great time, just sometimes sewing has to be put on the back-burner...xxx

Now that sounds like a super fabulous day. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all dress up as superheroes and head to the park!
Thanks so much for fixing the snap on my pinny. I really aprreciate it!

Love those costumes! I guess if you're going to terrorise, oops visit, the ducks you have to do it in style.
