Aimee is lucky or is that unlucky?, she get's to go to school by taxi and so wasn't affected by the car breakdown.
I don't think they were too unhappy about it, except that Hope was unhappy that she'd be missing out on sewing at school. Once a fortnight she and her classmates travel by bus to Maramarua school to do what we called "manual", but what they call "tech". I have been thoroughly educated today! LOL!
So, because she couldn't go, and because we all know I've been surgically attached to my machine...
Hope made draw-string bags to go with the shortie pyjama's I made her out of some long ones last night! I am loving how much my daughters are taking on frugal and fun crafting... I guess we don't realise just how much we influence our children just by how we live our lives.

Briahna and I worked together to design and make a little outfit for her pumpkin patch bear, Honey...

I'm so proud of how excellent the photographs of Honey are! I know she was working with a really photogenic model, but look at all the angles she took the pictures from, very artistic... I think she may be taking after her parents in the talent stakes! ;) I had absolutely nothing to do with the footage, I just sent Briahna outside with the camera and Honey in hand, and she worked her magic!!!
I am also proud of myself, because after years of being afraid of sewing knit fabric, I finally bit the bullet and sewed the neat little t-shirt Honey is wearing! There were only one or two swear words spoken, too! Simply amazing.
Not sure, if I should make days of school so fun though! I might find it difficult getting them to school tomorrow... hehehe! ;)
