Decent photos of the finished articles can be added tomorrow as the light isn’t good enough to take them decently but here is my felted snowman and Fran’s felted present.
Christmas Craft #3 was these cute little kits from Tesco, which would have been too expensive to do en masse, had i not caught them at marked down 2 for 1 moment. Nice and simple and pre punched, so a bit of a cheat but especially great for Josie and visiting Mini-Violet to practise stitching on and the bigs enjoyed them too.
Finished articles are rather nice and will make good stockings for toys, decorations and place settings.
Today’s random topic was mainly brought on by Josie’s somewhat challenging behaviour (!) 🙄 but was to do with figures of speech, namely “glass half full, glass half empty”. We had quite a long conversation about how this was used to refer to a personality type or an outlook on a situation but how equally it might depend on mood or the thing in question.
“The chocolate box is already half empty” 🙁
“The washing sorting basket is already half empty!” 🙂
“We’ll never make it home, the petrol tank is half empty.” 🙁
“We’ll make it home, the petrol tank is still half full!” 🙂
Remarkably interesting – amazing what comes up when you are pootling through something gentle like Christmas Crafting.
