Wee Wonderfuls stitching

I have traced this Wee Wonderfuls stitchette using the Pilot Frixion pen that Georgia first told me about.  It disappears with a light iron.  It was fabulous to put a quick iron to areas that I felt had not been as neat in the tracing as I would have liked. Magically, the marks disappeared, and I could quickly retrace in an instant.
I bought my Pilot Frixion pen at our local newsagent, the lovely girl needed to look high and low, before asking for assistance from a fellow staff member - who located the container promptly.
 Upon coming home and relaying the find and seek mission at the dinner table, the little 5BN's promptly told me  --  this is what is used with the graduation to a pen licence at school!  A pen licence is deemed appropriate in senior primary school - when the pupils continue to write neatly in blacklead -- they are allowed to use a pen--and this is the choice  - as mistakes can be erased easily.
Making use of the Lightbox

Quiet and Silent reading

Miss 5BN has been stitching this lovely girl onto a pillowcase, as does Georgia with her precision stitching.

During the 20 week ultrasound whilst pregnant with Miss 5BN, the Ultrasonographer stopped and called the Senior Chap in.  Having a little knowledge of the procedure (  a little knowledge can be very very dangerous!) all sorts of wild possibilities went through my mind.  How relieved were we, when we were told;  the ultrosonographer had never seen a baby in the womb, --lying on its tummy, hands up under the chin, and knees tucked up under the belly!    Mr 5BN and I also added that our 2yo 5BN at the time - also loved to watch t.v., play, do jigsaw puzzles and read in this manner.  We all shared a chuckle at this.

I was quietly chuffed, therefore, when Miss 5BN picked the above design to stitch for herself.

Next project is  the quilting bee, maybe will make this into a tote bag for Miss 5BN to carry around her stitching projects - now she is quietly confident.

Heat Packs bagged for the Farmers Market

The sewing machine is away, and the last kernels of wheat vacummed and swept away.
The child labour had their best day yet, selling out of most of their products at the local Farmers Market yesterday. We joke, we are receiving a better price for the wheat sold in this manner - than sold at the silos at harvest time.
Lovely Labels
The new labels were put to use, and I will also use them on other sewing of quilts and garments as well.  I am very pleased with the quick turnaround and communication with this company.
