"good Mummy"

I've done some "good Mummy"-type sewing -
1. I shortened boy 1's school shorts... and he agreed to model them for me!... don't they look just great?
If you're lucky enough to be on my email list you'll see a first day of school photo in a few days... he's so excited.

















And

2. I made him a pencil case which I really like. I fiddled and fiddled to get the zip neatly sandwiched between the outer and the lining, and was pretty happy with the end result. No-one will have the same pencil case - of that I can be absolutely sure!

Poor Boy 2.

Not only will he be abandoned by Boy 1 next week, he also hasn't had anything sewn for him! Luckily I just happen to have some polar fleece material waiting to be sandwiched together for a blanket for him. Not quite the weather for it, but maybe it could be inspiration for more "good Mummy"-type sewing.

Next job????
To label the school bag, hat and various other items due to leave the house on Monday!
I think that could come under the general heading of "good Mummy" too!

Here's to being a good Mummy! Cheers!

or should I say "goodnight!"? Enough goodness for one day - this Mum needs some sleep.
