Archie's Crochet Cactus.

 Here it is, Archie's first crochet project.... his very own cactus. As you can imagine, I am indescribably proud. Also thrilled to see how much pleasure he had in working on a project and chatting with those around him. It is such a sociable thing to do, especially when camping. I stitched it up (he wanted me to as he has been a bit busy with school camps and so on) but the rest was absolutely him. We put rice in the base which helps it to stand and somehow makes it more tactile. He is a happy boy.
 And speaking of happy boys, here is a photo of Archie for the weekend all dolled up for a fairy and pirate party. He was very taken with having a silver tooth. As for the mark on the neck (long story and not as bad as it looks), well lets just say that he looked like a pirate that escaped with his life.
 Don't you hate it when your teeth keep falling out.
 Hugo kept himself busy over the weekend. Poor smurfs. Actually we have a beautifully decorated verandah.
This one is a cheeky one to be sure. 
Lots and lots of love,
Kate xxooxx.
