Ponies, Puppets and Projects

Hannah had a riding lesson this morning, She rode Tilly again who is fast becoming a favourite.

When we got home Hannah wanted to make something on the sewing machine. She decided on a quilt for her Emily Button rag doll. She chose the pieces of fabric and cut the squares, then together we sewed them. Hannah chose the backing and stuffed the quilt and then I made a little pillow to go with it.

 Here is the finished quilt.

The quilt with the pillow,

 and here are Emily and her friends enjoying the quilt.

Hannah is so pleased with the way it turned out.

Also today we used an old drawer to make a puppet theatre. Hannah wanted to make up a winter play using her Folkmanis puppets , so we used the outer drawer frame as the theatre surround and Hannah used wool stuffing for snow. We made some cardboard pine trees and Hannah made up the story.

The puppets are a bear, rabbit, raccoon, moose and an owl

It was such a sweet play, the animals all built a snowman together in the forest.

Finally, still on a wintery theme, Hannah made a Christmas picture!

and that was Friday!
