... we ALL scream for icecream!
Ok, I know I dissed a little on my daughter this week... but you all know I love her, right? And I know she knows it too. But to illustrate it to her further, I sat up last night and made her a little pressie! A lot of love went into this gift, because I am a hopeless sewer for all my grand intentions and you won't be seeing my designs on Etsy any time soon!
My daughter LOVES jewellery. She's been playing with the rings/ necklaces/ bracelets/ earrings of anyone who leans within reaching distance of her almost since the day she was born. So I love to buy her little inexpensive trinkets when I see something I know she'll like. Yesterday was very warm, so my inspiration for making this little necklace is the idea of Summer and memories of sitting outside as a child, licking icecream from the cone as fast as I could, in a losing battle against the sun! I think the pavement ate more icecream than I did!
Fern found the necklace this morning and looked very cute wearing it... Shes also polite enough not to scorn my dreadful hand sewing! Unfortunately I didn't get a pic of her wearing it in time before I popped her and Elliott down for a little morning nigh-nigh.
We're off swimming shortly in Nanny's pool -- its our first swim of the season and I'm a teeny bit nervous about squeezing my post-natal bod into a cozzie... but at least its family and not a beach full of supermodels! Have a lovely weekend, see you next week! x
