Vof vof, it’s me Hanna! With Nero we have been waiting for The Packet! While waiting we did many things.
It’s coming from far away and we woked up many mornings watching the sunshine on the Fabric Forest.
Fell a sleep many evenings … watching the same sunshine! One day I had bath and I looked like a wet bear!
Sometimes we got tired to wait. Isn’t it coming yet, Nero?!
We had delicious food! Hb made it and said it’s soufle. I know there was bacon and that’s my favourite!
We had walks and picked little flowers. If you stop to smell the grass and look around you, you can see beautiful tiny things that other wise you wouldn’t notice. I think fairy uses that green thing to comb her hair.
Sometimes you can see bigger things. Nero’s job is to take rubbishes out. Look what he found one day! Is this a treasure or trash? I know I can fix it and it will be my treasure. It’s iron and there is mirror in the middle. That could be changed to something else, like my photo for example! No, now I know! I shall put there photo of me and Nero!
Hmmm, perhaps I shall make picture with Nero, Nelli, Foxy and me. That would be really nice.
We have been sewing a lot. Mostly I like the crown we made for The Honey Pot Bee! I want to give this crown to my hero, Nero! Last Monday he wasn’t well and we were so worried. You know that he is 12,5 years. But fortunately from Tuesday he was well again! What a relief to see him again happy, sitting on his favourite place, playing with ball, ears up and enjoying his small walks. Today I took the trash bag out and Nero said: ‘shouldn’t I go now out with that bag and not you?’ We all get used to our habits! I said to him: ‘Dear Nero, you can go today to the other road to read some new news’.
Can you guess how fun it was to make this crown! When I was walking I was planning how to do it. I thought that darkened silver would be nice and then I could decorate it with lots of gemstones and with some colourful glass pieces. I love those turquoise diamonds! There is also silver thread!
And I show you how I made the fun ribbon for the edge.
I was thinking hard how to add something to the edge and looked my fabric stash. Hmm something with lines … haa, yes chevron is just what I need! I didn’t cut the rest of the piece before marking it on the back side. I drew line where the stitiching should be and then added 1/4″ seam allowance.
My crown became improvised. I mixed up with my notes and those colourful triangles are not the same like in the pattern. Also the silver thread was a mess. It just ran out on its own! Lucky me who didn’t have bigger diamonds! But now I have an idea for a patent. Have to try first and then I tell you.
Hey Nero, I think I see something there on the road! Come to see! Is it our bike coming?
Yes Hanna, it is and he’s carrying something wrapped with brown paper! It must be The Packet!
Jippii! Our packet is finally here! How exciting!
Seriously, Nero, is this all we have been waiting for so many days?! I think I’m a little bit disappointed. It did smell interesting but there were nothing to eat or play! Blaah.
But no worries! I know that you know why this packet was so important. With Nero we can continue to wait; perhaps there will come something else, soon!
You guessed right. This means that the quilt project with puppy and girl will continue.
