"And now, cried Max, let the wild rompus start..." Maurice Sendak, in Where the Wild Things Are.
It's been a while since I have posted, due to our school holiday fun and then some internet downtime. Fortunately I am back online now and also back into routine with school having recommenced for Ess yesterday. Along with my Kindermusik classes! I am now teaching Semester 2 of Kindermusik for the Young Child to my dear 5 year old students and am really loving it. They were all so motivated yesterday to learn and sing, play and explore their beautiful glockenspiels. I was feeling refreshed after a lovely relaxing holiday break with comparatively large amounts of downtime and more time than usual to create things.
For neverending inspiration regarding things to create, follow me to visit Melissa Goodsell who has recently edited a new magazine entitled Australian Homesewn. There are many inspiring projects made from delightful fabrics you have no doubt seen if you've been exploring Etsy along with me. Melissa has her own store there as well.
We were in need of a little gift for a friend this month. So in keeping with my commitment to give handmade gifts, I decided to make a little monster for our little monster friend. We hope he continues to like it, apparently he carried it all around the shopping centre after first receiving it. So thanks Mel, for your delightful pattern! It can be found in Mel's magazine.
Zet was inspired by the monsters featured in the book Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. Here he is receiving a little love from Eee before giving him away.
There are more things we created together from the magazine and Mel's inspiration so I'll see you back here again with more of those...and some others of our own.
