Valentines day

Well its another year ... and its Valentines day once again .. can you believe it?!?!

Miguel wanted to make a gift for his new teacher Mrs Duff and the teachers assistant Mrs Zungu.

So we decided on little felt hearts that we would attach to little owls that he would help me make ... well once he started into the hearts the owls were forgotten. (you can see forgotten Burt in the foreground) he insisted on attaching the owls wings onto the hearts and Viola!!!

Look at the concentration ...
SO I bought some broach backs and stitched them on and there we go ... what do you think of his sewing . I think that he did a awesome job!!!

I quickly drew up some little valentines cards with Miguel on them (yes I know the likeness is astonishing!!) to attach the hearts. I was hoping to have 2 more don't for my sister and mom but i have been man down for two days with the flu ... I feel battered and bruised!!

Today they also had to wear Valentines civvies to school .. the requirement in order to participate was to bring a tin of food for a charity ... which is one of the things that I love about his new school, they are extremely community orientated and are always getting the children involved in charitable projects - even the little ones. They had to wear something red and white, preferably with a heart on it. Now if any of you have little boys, you know that that is asking the impossible ... Whilst trolling through Flickr my most favourite site in the entire world .. I can across this very talented embroider ?!?!? (is there such a word? What is a person who embroiders called?) She goes by the name of torrance and i thought to myself .. now that is a awesome idea!!!! SO here it is ..

Hope you all have a awesome weekend!! And happy Valentines day to you all!!!!!!
