I have started reading Maisie some of my old Little Golden Books and found this one particularly amusing. According to LGB wisdom, a little boy can grow up to become a policeman, a lion tamer, a doctor, a cake icing expert, a fireman, a diver or an astronaut. Our little female tike's career choices are limited to being a damsel in distress awaiting rescue from a brave fireman, marrying a baker, being a policeman's helper, becoming a mermaid who serves ice-cream and tea to those hungry divers or a proud waitress dishing up "Moonburgers" to those hungry astronauts. Then, there is always the option of opening a beauty parlour for animals while pining the return of her lion tamer husband. The future looks bright.
Just thought I'd share this gorgeous quilt with you that Maisie's grandma gave us on Mother's Day. The middle section includes scraps of school uniforms, clothes and other meaningful bits and bobs that were quilted by Maisie's great-grandmother. The card is a treat from creche. I love how the fingers are smeared showing how the impatient little minx was trying to escape from the enforced art project.
Little Maise is coping well with creche and I'm enjoying the return to work, so the week has been really good. And, now that the house inspections are over with I can bring back some of the clutter including the sewing machine! Over the Summer I turned an old pair of my jeans into shorts and saved the cut-off legs for another project. Inspiration struck this week and I turned them into a little pair of homegirl jeans for Maisie. They're a bit baggy, but she seems very happy with them. So simple.
