As regular readers will know Sophie loves her Arts and Crafts. At the end of last week she brought home a lovely and colourful piece of weaving that she had created at school.
The rows had been really packed together and the final piece was very strong and had been finished really well.
The pleasure and pride that my little girl had on her face was a joy to see and I had one of my Slushy Mummy Moments! This is why Craft and Making skills need more promotion in education (not just the academic stuff) as it gives a glowing sense of achievement in a way that may be some subjects do not.
We are going to add a method of hanging and put it up in her room.
Weaving is a really fun and inexpensive activity which has great results.
I am off to Bristol tomorrow for a course and I am really looking forward to several hours of uninterrupted reading on my Kindle. Bliss!
