The best kind of sewing days are the ones that make little one's smile a little bigger - where the little one chooses from Mummy's fabric selection and wonders what Mummy is going to whip together while she watches.
Learning, dreaming, watching, making, creating something from nothing.
and then I tell her I am making a little something for her dolly, and she looks at me like this and giggles, with wonder in her eyes and a smile that could get her nearly anything (shhh... don't tell her that).
then she gets to help, learning, dreaming, watching, making, stuffing
and just like that, in a space of an hour you can show a four year old that something can always be made from nothing,
and that makes me smile.
Oh - have you noticed, I'm loving taking photos with my phone at the moment they are the images I would never normally take, it's within reach and captures the day just as it is with no frills and whistles. They are not perfect images, sometimes blurry, low quality, taken one handed on the run, nothing like what I adore from my SLR - but it's just everyday life with a bit of crazy thrown in for good measure and the best camera is the one that's in your hands.
Yes, I love that.
