So I decided to buy a building kit from Myriad which would fit in nicely with our work. While I was at it I bought a kit to make a flower fairy for the nature table, thinking I can adapt the kit pattern to make other things, and browsed through the site and saw some silk squares of material. Now I keep reading about these silk squares and how great they are for children to 'use their imaginations' but to be honest thought mine were a bit too old. As you can probably guess I added some to my order.
Our parcel arrived this morning, needle felting went out the window, as we ripped open the box. I waited eagerly for Hettie to pounce on the building stuff, but no ..... it was the squares of silk. She played with 3 squares of material for an hour and a half. I hit the laptop. Every 5 minutes she bounced in the room saying guess what this is?
The sky, the grass & a daffodil
We eventually got round to the building blocks, alright I might have insisted.
So sometimes you just can't win, Isobel came home and played with ..... the silks. In fact she's taken them to bed with her. Now if I'd have known years ago I only needed a few bits of material ....
