Meet Spotty Dotty





 Looking for something 'arty' to do this afternoon, Sienna and I got to work making a new friend (Yep, still dog crazy!). She drew a plan of how she wanted it to look, found the various fabric colors and buttons, and drew on some spots, while I cut the shapes and sewed it. She filled it with white stuffing, chatted happily and practiced using the needle and thread while she waited for me to finish it. In the end she was very pleased with her new toy, and is planning our next creation already.

So clever and Hay you amaze me with your ideas, resourcefulness and creative drive. Love the drawing at the end too (and my Sophie has that same gorgeous dress!) x

Thanks guys :-) Sarah, Sienna is obsessed with dresses, she takes after Madi. Denver and Kyla are more relaxed about their wardrobes :-)

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
