School holidays

The granddaughters broke up from school on Friday for the Easter holiday. Easter being so late this year they get the two weeks break before Easter instead of after it which seems a bit strange.
They are staying with us Monday to Thursday of this week and then we all go off to Scotland for a week.

Needless to say I have planned things for us all to do, and we started after their arrival with playing in my Happy Room, and the project for this visit is to make clocks.

They started by drawing  the outline shape and then took it in turns to Machine Embroider the numbers 12, 3, 6 and 9 in coloured threads they had choosen. Next they chose flower shape buttons and sewed them by hand for the missing numbers.

We are now awaiting the delivery [ due today] of the frames for the clocks and will then be able to complete the clocks.
