" Thomas`s Brooch"

Hello Blog friends, Oh! My! Word! only 3 more sleeps.  Hope you are not beginning to panic!!!  You know what they say?  Worry causes premature aging, now we certainly do not want that do we!!!!
Thank you for calling by today. 
I personally feel the time I spend having a wee hop round Blogland is very relaxing.

Quick post today.

Last week when we were at the boys School Christmas Play there were things for sale that the children had made.   Robert class (that`s the 5,6, and 7`s) had made a couple of things each from Candy Canes and Lolly Pop Sticks , Thomas`s class ( 8, 9,10 and 11`s) had made some cakes and three Brooches each.  Of course we had to buy the things "ours" have made.  Thomas`s brooches were all sold, Audrey bought one, I bought one and Elaine bought the other .  We bought up the things Robert had made as well, so both of them were very happy.  Actually there was nothing left by the end of the evening.

These Brooches are so, so clever.  They are actually made from old clothes.  The base is a circle cut from a sweater, the flower is the "Rib" part of another sweater cut in a concentric circle, rolled to make the flower.  He has obviously been watching Granny!!!!   Then the addition of buttons to finish it all off.   The children were all so pleased their things sold.   Everyone was taking about how wonderful the things to buy were. .  The children did all the sewing themselves apart from a few machine sewed bits done by a teacher.

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling in I really do appreciate it
