So a few pictures from the day..
a very happy girl, and a very proud Mamma and Papa
all things she had made and acquired for use with small children..
She sewed that dress, and the vest and hat, also the 'quillow' and the playmat, as well as the 'taggie' and she made the mobile, and the mattresses for the story book, the Princess and the Pea. And, of course, she sewed the quilt draped over the chair, as well.
Interacting with small child, though clearly I cannot show you the small child!
Yes, those white gloves are part of formal uniform...
We also saw, great excitement.... a bubble car!
My daughter had never seen one of these in real life before- so I had to take the photo. Wonderful!
We then spent the weekend with friends and visited Brockhampton, which is a lovely old manor house, in Herefordshire.
my apologies to the folks who accidentally landed in the picture..
A lovely small manor house, with some fabulous gardens, and wonderful coggledy floors.
And then home to the mundane run... Good to be back.
