A January round up ....

I love seeing other bloggers monthly reviews so thought I would do the same.

Sewing

Working, and finishing, a quilt for Miss C; cutting some donated fabric samples to be made into a charity quilt; playing with different forms of appliqué to make birds for a childrens workshop.






Hooking



Reading

Whilst I have always been an avid reader joining up to the 26 Books Challenge has inspired me to try different books this month.  Here are January's books - some of which will tick off certain categories.





Creating - in lots of different media




Lego buildings constructed at a Lego Electricity Workshop for our local Home Ed group


Miss M's first quilt finished and in use - only took 5 years to complete!


I picked up this book in a bag of book son Freecycle and it really captured the girls' imagination.  This was Miss M's first attempt and it was then given as a birthday present.


Spontaneous creativity for their toys!


And finally meet Fred!  We didn't get much snow this January but when we had our 'biggest' fall Miss C was straight out there, in the pitch black, making a snowman.  As you can see by the picture he had already started to melt by the time I deemed it sensible to go out!


Home Educating

All our regular groups and clubs started up again after the Christmas holidays and it's been lovely catching up with friends and their families.  On the home front we have joined a great FB group called Passport Around the World Ideas and have started swapping postcards and flat travellers.  I also signed up to Postcrossing and have loved getting postcards through the door.  So far I have sent to Ukraine, Germany, Russia, China, Netherlands, Belarus, Taiwan and USA and received from Germany, Norway, USA, Ukraine, Japan and Germany.  The most wonderful little package arrived from Japan containing two postcards depicting a local temple and festival along with little key chain figurines and some origami figures.  Check out the origami ET below! xx
