Mummy made it

Babess loves the little orange cardigan I made for her (you can see a glimpse of it in the “Baby Pigtails” picture), and whenever someone mentions it she holds out the sides and says very seriously, “Mummy made it”.

Sometimes she then goes on to claim I made her skirt, skivvy and tights, which can render her audience a little skeptical!

Fainjin loves his fire-engine pyjamas, but now also has an over-inflated idea of my sewing skills.  He is wont to ask for a new pair of pyjamas most evenings, all with different designs.  And if he can’t find a t-shirt he likes in the mornings, his answer is “You can make me one, Mummy…”

Pearl has a slightly better idea of what is possible, which is a great improvement since she was three and asked me to knit her a baby sister.  She has a school “disco” coming up in two weeks, and it’s going to be Fancy Dress.  She had some realistic suggestions for a horse costume that I could make… and was willing to consider being a cowgirl instead.  That’s still a possibility, but luckily for me her cousins are dancers and have lots of different costumes for us to check through first.

It’s nice that they all have such unshakable faith in my abilities, though.
