Mama Made Mondays

I made Rye a flying star.  Its the african flower motifs sewn around a tennis ball and some ribbon added.   Not entirely sure about the tennis ball, it makes it feel very hard, I think it would be better with a bag of lentils or similar - bit of squishy-ness.

I haven't done much on the granny stripe, busy-ness of motherhood, childminding and just life in general.  I do want to get it finished as soon as possible though, before my enthusiasm for it wanes.

Ohhh and Rye has been building train tracks again; he's building more and more complex tracks - I'll keep an eye out for expansions kits etc, this is one toy that I think will be a firm favourite for a long time.

Yay! I thought Mama Made Monday was dying a death. Feel terrible that I set it up and then hardly ever manage a post ;-) Got one planned for next week though.

I love the star. Is there no end to your crocheting skills ;-) Keep meaning to make something similar out of fabric.

Wooden train track - ingenious stuff. Keeps everyone happy regardless of age and gender. Magic!
