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.
