at last, the 5 year old turns 6.
It was a long weekend of waiting but luckily we were distracted by a science festival.
I always try to make something for birthdays and call it their birthday card.
This is a birthday card/place mat, used already.
I adapted the ship picture from this patchwork book
Quite impressed myself actually, very quick and easy, I added space for a knife and fork with some free machine outlines so that there is some chance of the 3 year old putting the cutlery in the right place.
The party went well and ended up with very excited 6 year olds trying to soak the 10 year old in a water fight.
I have also had some lovely emails with good wishes on the trip to the Amalfi Coast,
ok, ok, ermm its not actually real trip just in our heads, a bit of an escape!
