Hair clip and yummy stuff!
Yesterday was picture day at my kids' school and my daughter wanted something pretty for her hair. I was too tired to make anything the night before, so at 7.30 in the morning I was busy cutting and stitching before she left at 8. I didn't have time to draw a pretty pattern so I just did it free-style with the scissors! And then I thought it needed a pretty button in the middle but I didn't have one on hand. But I did have a left over cherry I had made from the Cupcakes! You'll notice it's just regular felt and not my nice felted wool a couple of posts back - she wanted certain colors so I just used what I had. My girl loved it and when she came home yesterday, told me that Zach in her class said it looked like she bought it from a store. Yes, the ultimate compliment LOL! And now she has all these ideas of new ones to make like butterflies and hearts. It might be a fun weekend project!
And now onto a completely different subject... I want to share the yummy fruit salad we had on Sunday night. Well not share in the literal sense, though that would be nice wouldn't it?! I even managed to find passionfruit for it - the first time I have seen passionfruit in the US in the 8 years I have been here! I paid through the nose for it though - $1.50 for just ONE! Ouch! Growing up in NZ my Mum always had a passionfruit vine in the backyard which would produce dozens at a time. The price was high but it added that delicious something to the mix.Have a look at the label to see where the passionfruit came from - I didn't notice it until the next day when I went to use it. Could it be a sign?! Of what I wonder?!Anyway, the kids had fun helping me cut up the fruit and couldn't stop laughing when I turned the mango inside out! Oh the joys of being a kid again :)
