sometimes you have to go with what you've got



I'm afraid my le challenge finish for this months theme PRECIOUS is not a sewing project but a result of some crafting with the kids that we did the other day. Yes I fully intended to make something else but I've had no time and with a poorly girl earlier in the month and makes that had to be finished it got pushed aside.

So I admit defeat and offer you some glittery painted pinecones (a la Making Rebecca Lynne) in a jar.




The jar itself is precious because it housed the delicious bramble jelly my nan made and labelled. She always asks for the jars back but I'm secretly squirreling them away because I just love both the jars and her handwriting. This was also some fun precious time spent with the kids. Apologies for not getting my sew on for this one but there may be months not quite as good as others ;)

Go and visit le challenge, link up any precious finishes and see what the other challengers got up to (hope they did a bit better than me!!).

Le Challenge

There will be no challenge for the next month but we'll be back with a new theme (and new look!) on January 15th so please check back then, join in the fun and have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the fat quarter shop!

  2. I bet your nan would be secretly tickled to know that you so value her little jar and label.

  7. As a teacher and a parent I want to tell you to stop apologising for spending time with your kids and making memories with them! What a wonderful activity to carry out - exactly the sort of thing all children should get to do as it adds to their broader experiences. Wonderful...and definitely precious!!

  8. Time spent making things with little ones is very precious and hopefully they will remember and make things themselves later in life.....seems ages off, but it will soon come around!
