It's all about stars today. These are going to be threaded together to make bunting to go in Mini's room.
They are gorgeous are they not? I love them. The pattern is super easy and super quick and I will tell you where I found it, but not right now as I can't remember. It's scribbled in my notebook which is downstairs and I can't be jiggered to go and find it. I will edit this later though as credit must go to the talented lady who wrote the pattern (edit: here's the pattern). I can't be jiggered because I'm a bit peeky at present. Just a cold but I appear to be going down hill fairly swiftly. Urgggh. As with all bugs the timing isn't great as I have to get all three boys into Bristol before 9am tomorrow as we have a hospital appointment for Big Cuckoo at the children's hospital. To get there at that time of day we need to set off before 8am I wouldn't relish that even when feeling fighting fit but I'm fretting over it because I feel rough as rats. Then I have to take Big Cuckoo to disabled horse riding in the afternoon. Poor Little Cuckoo has to come along too and he doesn't get to go on a horse and he'd love to. Finally at 6.45pm it's parents evening for Big Cuckoo, all five of us will have to go along, so it's going to be a bit of a test tomorrow especially as I have to try to fit in the baby's feeds around it all...I'm sure it'll work out fine but I wish I didn't have to do most of it all by myself. Trying to get the boys to be sensible on the walk from the car park to the hospital is the bit that is plaguing me as they are prone to bolting and the road is so busy.
Little Cuckoo is my shadow when his big brother is at school therefore he decided to get in on the photoshoot.
"Young man, they are not for you to play with!"
"Oh yes they are!"

I think they will look so sweet in Mini Cuckoo's room, they'll go very nicely with the Cath Kidston wall stickers. I've been taking the embroidery threads and a tiny hook everywhere, so when it's not possible to do the WiP no.1 blanket I have done these instead. Very transportable. Very quick, I reckon less than five minutes per star.
Oh look, some hearts! These are fruity hearts that the boys have as a packed lunch treat. I'm rather partial to them myself!
Time for me to try to sleep this cold off. Wretched thing. At least I feel rotten now and not over the Easter holidays. I need my energy to entertain the boys otherwise they'll be little horrors and they'll demolish the house, the garden and each other.
