But our girl definitely knows what she wants, she wanted the party for her friends from school on the same day, but she didn't want a very long party.
The theme had to be princesses, and she had one BIG wish..... a pinata!! Offcourse i could make that, right??
We started the weekend before with paper mache and 2 balloons, that wasn't to hard.
We had great fun that afternoon, my mom came to help. And she made for all the girls a little cape. We decorated our own crowns, and decorated cupcakes!
The weekend was filled with grandparents visiting for the birthday girl. My dad brought some great spindles!! i will show and tell you about them later this week! Oh and i bought my mom and myself a little orchid, we walked by them in the city. They were so cute! And only 2,99 each!
After the birthday a nasty cold got hold off me, couhing, headache and soooo cold. But hey as a mom you can't be sick, so i spend quite some time in a chair knitting. While the girls played around me.
And what i was knitting? Something very easy... just improvising.
At ravelry there's a dutch karma swap group, and in a swap i claimed four skeins of Drops Eskimo in a olive green.
i spend the weekend knitting a bag from it,
put it in the laundry machine, and voila a felted bag.
And now i'm adding little flowers so much funnto do.
I really like these little chamomile flowers.
and now i haven't even told you about my new yarn, the shawl i started with the tosh sock yarn and and... but now it's time to prepare the turnip mashpot for dinner tonight.
