"Once there was a snowman..."

Last Saturday whilst we were at the library Miss 10 borrowed some Christmas "making/doing" books. And today she did. She used the books as inspiration and made this fellow. He is quite small and very, very cute. My children are inspirational. They just make things. Without lengthy hemming and hawing. Without hesitation. They just start. And, more often than not, shortly thereafter finish successfully. I worry too much about things. And failure. And don't get much done at all. Today I have some Christmas things to get organised and after I finish I'm going to take a leaf out of Melly's book and just sew. For no particular reason or deadline, but just because I want to. Sometimes I think we have to do what we crave in order to remain sane! Here's to sanity.

The snowman looks great! Hurray for the innocence of kids just making what they like. Where did ours go....? Have fun sewing and a very Merry Christmas to you all!
