The other day Miss H did some sewing - in between the chaos of everything going on at the moment.
A friend of the Mother's - whom the Mother has been teaching to quilt - gave Miss H the cut-off from the X and O blocks she has been making.
So Miss H sewed them all together. They are a bit tangled Miss H...
Unfortunately, Miss H then burnt herself on the iron. Ow!
She got the angle wrong when she picked it up as both Miss H and the Mother had been using the iron so the angle kept changing.
So she ran her arm under the water for ages while I cried big sheepie tears.
But she slowly kept going with the sewing.
Here are the pieces for one of the two pouches Miss H made.
Later when the Boss came home and heard about Miss H's burn - and that she hadn't run it under the water for 15 minutes - he used some Kiwi ingenuity.
This is Miss H's arm wrapped up in a damp tea towel and held firmly by a ratchet strap that the Boss uses to tie things down in the trailer. It worked perfectly for taking the stinging heat out of the burn.
Here are the completed pouches.
This one now belongs to the Mother.
The Mother quilted both of the pouches. She stitched Snowy and her name into her one.
She wrote Miss H's name, love and joy into Miss H's pouch.
Perfect and very comfortable.
Pop by on Monday to see what Miss H has decided for this year's Christmas theme.
