No, no, not me! Our Poppet turned three last week, and what does a sewing Auntie (and non-sewing Uncle) give to their 3 year old niece?Why, a sewing box of course! (Get ’em in early, I say!)with a hand knitted beanie (which, regrettably was too small, but has since grown) and some fat 1/16th rolls, which Poppet was fascinated by and called Treasure Maps (they’re having a pirate theme at Day Care at the moment)!Nanna (Ma Kettle), Uncle Golfer, and Auntie MJ (yours truly) had to visit Poppet’s room to see her fairy stickersand admire her fairy dresses, one of which was to be worn the next day at her Fairy PartyThis first one was the favourite, but her Mummy and I like this second one which comes complete with rosette band for her hair and fairy wings. Just gorgeous!Then we had to see her perform on the new trampoline. Auntie MJ couldn’t resist and despite the tight fit getting between the netting into the trampoline (not a pretty sight!) I had a ball!! Can’t remember the last time I jumped on a trampoline – and thankfully there’s no photographic evidence.
Our Poppet is quite the artist too, with her artworks displayed on the wallsand these ones she painted with her Mummy Then Nanna had to do some reading with Poppet, and these are her Daddy’s books from when he was little. Still in vogue.Oh, the joys of being a fairyand three!Meredithe x
