Hello! How have you been? The last weeks have flown away so quickly. Suddenly Summer arrived and so did the last school week, which was full of events out of the ordinary and I could hardly find any time for sewing. Big E left for her first Summer camp yesterday, she will be away from home for five days (eek)! The camp is called I'm creative, she picked it herself (that's my girl)! And while she's away I will be sewing with school kids at two day camps. We'll be making monsters again :) And maybe we can come up with a way to use these Kona cotton scraps I have.
The biggest occasion last week was Big E's birthday party for her classmates, her real birthday is on Midsummer's Day which is a national holiday, that means everyone will be away at their Summer houses so we always celebrate her birthday early before school ends. She doesn't mind getting some of her gifts a month early :)
She ordered a pirate party (Please mum, I don't want any crafting or sewing at my party!) so me and the Dad did our best. I'm pretty proud of the invites we made. While preparing for the party T and I realised we did not know much about pirates and how they party, but we enjoyed saying Yarr-Arr to each other. A lot.
For the nine nine year old girls the pirate-thing seemed to come quite natural, at the table they had spontanious burping, screaming and farting contests... You can't really tell a pirate not to behave like one, can you?
