I have finally finished my last sewing project – hurrah!
Last night I quickly sewed up the cape for Vampire Mouse, which I have been trying to work on in secret whilst the boys are around. This is more difficult than it sounds as my studio also has the spare bed in it and the boys like to ‘hang out’ there (it’s and old double brass Victorian thing) and watch tv (it’s the only other room in the house with a telly in it) plus M has made it his convalescence bed whilst resting his shoulder and ribs….I can’t lie I will be very excited to have it back to myself once everyone is back at school and work.
Anyhow here we are, Batman Mouse as requested by C when I refused to give up one of the new Pirate Mice I made for the shop.
and Vampire Mouse for F, both to be stuffed in the top of their stockings. I have explained that I will leave them out for Santa to include in their gifts.
M and I just had a laugh that they will complain straight away that the details are wrong. F is very specific about his ideas and likes to over think things, for instance he demanded dripping blood from the teeth of the vampire prompting a hasty bit of additional embroidery from me and as I was selecting fabric for batman cape there was talk of jet packs and ‘pointy bits on the arms’. They are soooooo excited already, I think we’ll have to start counting down the hours soon 😉
Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas.
