a flowering tree for Kindy...

Joy and I speak on the phone a lot! Most of the time we manage to simultaneously do other things - sewing up some vintage cards, ironing, watching tv or maybe cooking dinner. Last week, every time I spoke to Joy last week she was also frantically sewing stuffed fabric flowers. I couldn't quite imagine what she was making until she sent through these photos.

Apparently, the Kindy that her two children attend has a separate room in which the kids all take their nap after lunch. The room desperately needed a bit of decoration, so Joy and a couple of other Mums volunteered to create a display on one of the walls. They started off by getting the children to make leaves in all different ways - painted, dyed, collaged, crayon relief etc - and have been gradually adding them to hessian stuffed branches. Joy's padded flowers add just a dash of pretty colour and some extra dimension.

Don't you think they have done a great job?
