A Conversation And A Finish!

Conversation with Mitchell just as we are leaving 
to go out for lunch on Easter Saturday.

Mitchell - "Mum, remember you said you would make
Claire one of those letters for her birthday like the
one you made for Renee for her birthday?"
Renee's hanging
 Me - "Yes, that's right."

Mitchell - Well it's her birthday on Friday"!

Me - "You could have told me sooner. You know I'm going away on Tuesday and have lots to do."

Mitchell - Big grin!
 How could I disappoint the lovely Claire!
Well, in 24 hours I had a little hanging made for her.
One of Claire's favourite colours is purple. I found this pretty fabric in my stash which was perfect.
 
It's amazing what you can do at short notice.
