I have actually put head down and concentrated (for a change), and all the pouches are made for Helen's teachers. Phew! All I have to do is buy some chocolates now, and put some in each pouch. Job done!
Meanwhile, the girls came home with the trebuchets they made at school. Being a politically correct, safety conscience mother I refused to allow them to use them.
Yeah right! They went to war and I only got upset when they started hitting the window with stones instead of each other.
Do the goggles have a purpose? Or is this the latest fashion trend?ReplyDelete
The pouches look great and your girls are adorable in their goggles (kinda Steampunk-ish) =)ReplyDelete
Is Laura too young to remember what happened to PJ in Byker grove? ;-)ReplyDelete
Love those pouches!
My kids did trebuchets, too, flinging all kinds of stuff all over. I was glad the trebuchets were small other wise they'd be trying to duplicate the video they saw of a flying and then gloriously smashing piano! Love those little pouches. Do you have a favorite tutorial you follow,or do you just wing it?ReplyDelete
Pouches look gorgeous and love the H&S goggles on the girls!ReplyDelete
Ah! Your pouches are lovely....so pretty to see them together! What clever girls you have!ReplyDelete
I love the safety goggles, but it is time to get them proper construction/carpentry safety goggles as I see much building in their futures. Maybe a much larger model. And you are rocking the zipper pouches!ReplyDelete
Ha ha - you wait to see what I've been making today!!!ReplyDelete
Great minds think alike! Although yours look significantly neater and more prettily finished than mine.ReplyDelete
They look like fun!!! Watch out, they'll be building one that'll fling you over the roof next!ReplyDelete
P.S. Love the pouches!Delete
Blimey that's loads!! They look great! How to heck do you get those zip ends so neat, I try and try but have given up completely!!ReplyDelete
The goggles are so brilliant and their trebuchets look like great fun! (and I'm spending way too much time on the computer because I actually just typed googles - dear god!!!) x
I see you've been taking pouch lessons from me;-)ReplyDelete
That was quick Susan! We saw big trebuchets at Warwick yesterday! Gad to see the girls having safe fun but I really think it should be mud rather than stones - much more satisfying when you get a hit though not so authentic!ReplyDelete
Eee! Look at those pouches! What lucky teachers your girls have!ReplyDelete
They're hilarious with their safety goggles. That's fantastic!
Fantastic pouches, Susan, it always amazes me how everyone else whizzes these things up in about a tenth of the time it would take me! :-)ReplyDelete
Fabulous pouches :). And didn't the girls,do weel, I love the improvised PPE !ReplyDelete
Trebuchets?! Cor, lucky, lucky girls......I wasn't even to RUN @ my school :-( lucky, lucky teachers too! + chocolate? Wowsers :-)ReplyDelete
Wow! You have been incredibly prolific, lucky teachers.ReplyDelete
Love all the fabric you purchased.
OMG - I am just here from Hadley's, so many zippies in one day!!ReplyDelete
Beaut zippys. More lucky teachers! Nice makes S. Di xReplyDelete
It is all wonderful!ReplyDelete
They need to watch some "Pumpkin Chunkin'"!
hehe lol, I think all the teachers pressies this year were pouches :) I love the purple one are they watering cans or funky coffee pots ???ReplyDelete
ha ha, great picture of the girls! Love the pouches, there will be some happy teachers and T.a's tomorrowReplyDelete
Love the pouches and your girls look like they are having lots of fun there!ReplyDelete
Wow how cool are those for teacher pressies! Love the safety goggles for trebucheting!ReplyDelete
Ha ha love the catapults and goggles! The pouches are fab. Loving the Melody Miller!ReplyDelete
Brilliant photo!! Good for you for letting them too :-) would have been round to take your temperature if you'd not let them ;-)ReplyDelete
Lucky teachers, the pouches look great, and filled with chocolate -perfect.ReplyDelete
Love the girls in their goggles, what fun, flinging stuff at your sibling!
i'll be a teacher for chocolateReplyDelete
Brilliant pouches, I seem to be doing similar, must get round to blogging about all my zippy pouch teacher gifts xReplyDelete
Good to see the girls using safety goggles. Way to go on the improvisation there Mum.ReplyDelete
The pouches look fantastic. Im starting to think you're a bit of an over achiever. I don't think Miss P's teachers ever got a gift.
hahah - we had to use a trebuchet (firing ping pong balls a certain distance) at the end of a long training course (6 Sigma black belt course)and do a presentation backed up with 6 Sigma principles of statistical certainty - omg - what a laugh - let's just say i ended up juggling the ping pong balls because it had gone so badly!ReplyDelete
love the pouches - very posh!
The pouches look great all stacked up, how will you part with them? They must have been very good teachers! A little knowledge of battle tactics isn't a bad thing.ReplyDelete
Ahh, all good, clean fun. Goggles though? The HSE would be proud ;o)ReplyDelete
Your pouches are fabulous Susan - a great idea for teachers pressies, especially if they have chocolate inside them!ReplyDelete
Lovin the girls strutting that goggle look. They are such stars and still young enough to not mind the photos. Your pouches are great, lucky teachers!ReplyDelete
Oh my you have been busy! they look great!ReplyDelete
Seriously desirable pouches! Are those Brits still into mediaeval warhorses????ReplyDelete
How fun! I would love to get an awesome gifts like that from my students!ReplyDelete
What great gifts for your teachers...and I love the new look on the girls. They can start a new fashion statementReplyDelete
