Hugo's Makings.

Hugo and Archie have a new little cousin who they are very excited about. Archie was away this weekend being a busy boy at an Indiana Jones party (he went as a cub scout which is a very handy costume considering that he really is a cub scout) so Hugo had a bit of one on one time with me. He decided he wanted to make a toy for the new baby and designed the rabbit above. I cut out the fabric (to his specifications) and he decorated it with fabric markers before it was sewn up on the machine. Voila! It even has little velvet legs poking out the bottom.
The message next to it is one of Hugo's love notes and reads (in Hugo language) "I love you Mum so much". I know I have mentioned his notes before but I really am relishing them as it is only a matter of time until other emotions will be explored through writing. I do recall another little boy beginning of this way and then going onto write the odd "Poo poo Mummy" in fits of rage. Is it wrong to admit I even treasure those notes?
Then when sewing was finished, we went onto origami - this is his dog.
And after that, a little bit of garden harvest.
At the moment I am having a little bit of quiet, home time. The boys have gone to their grandparents for the night, a treat we have all been looking forward to for some time. Except, that I have come down with the most inconvenient and noisy cold so instead of going out to dinner and the movies with Jonno, I am nesting on the couch, kept warm by the ocean of tissues surrounding me. Hmmph. At least we have a couple of good d.v.d.'s to watch the moment Jonno comes home from work and Thai takeaways for dinner. Wahoo. I must say that having a son with a peanut allergy, means that whenever he is away for the night, all we feel like doing is eating peanutty dishes.
Have a nice night.
Lots of love,
Kate xxooxx.


  1. What a sweet little to want to make something for someone else.

  2. That's so cute! I'm sure the new baby will be happy with that rabbit. And I love that origami dog!!

  3. Your boys are so loving aren't they? And creative! Sorry you're full of a cold, pet. That's no fun at all! Get well soon. Loads of love, Amanda xxxxx

  4. Cute rabbit, but I also love little notes kiddies leave...so cute, and I too treasure them.
    Hope you are feeling better soon, horrid summer colds.....think you need some chocolate to help it!

  5. You must be one of the nicest friends to have when it comes to gift giving, they're always beautiful, and beautifully wrapped. I laughed out loud at the poo poo mummy note thing! Though I hope it wasn't too hurtful at the time. My 3.5 year old Nephew arrived home from a sleepover the other day, and announced to my sister that she wasn't his best friend any more. I think my Mum was more upset at that story, than my sister was in the receiving of the news. Bloomin colds, they really are the pits, hope you recover soon. Vanessa xxx
