I needed a few coat hangers and remembered that I had crocheted a few and put them aside, so out they came, just quickly sewed them up, no pretty edging, just plain. My funny little granddaughter (all of 4 yrs old) said she wanted to sew some buttons on, so I threaded the needle and started it off for her in the middle of the hanger and left her to it………hehe she is a funny little thing, I got the giggles as it looks like a snake with two eyes and a nose, I have left it like that and will show her in years to come. Actually a pretty good job for one so young and no one has actually shown her how to sew. My son and daughter in law are going to send her to an ‘alternative’ school next year where they teach them sewing etc. gardening, art and music along with the normal reading, writing etc. I am so happy because I feel we have lost our way with so much ‘academic’ learning and not enough learning day to day skills. The school is right next to a children’s farm, so they visit and learn about the animals as well.
I have been out in the garden again today, mum and dad bought up whole lot of geranium and pelargonium cuttings, so hopefully they will all grow and fill the garden with lots of lovely color. Got some more horrid weeds out, so the garden waste bin is chocka again and still a pile to go. I need some big muscles to tackle the last bit, the over grown Agapanthus at the front of the house where the letterbox is, they are encroaching onto the footpath.
Off to have a shower and then to work tonight. I have work again tomorrow at the dance school, they are all having their photo’s taken in their concert costumes. On Sunday I am off to a school concert with my friend, I go every year, it is a school for very special kids who all have a disability from mild to extremely severe, they are gorgeous and put on a fantastic concert, dancing and singing. They do amazing art too and last year I bought this…..
