Amelia didn't seem to mind what they looked like.
Grace ate some in between jumping on the bed and doing some Grease Lightning dancing.

The girls had their appointment with the speech therapist on Friday. I had been dreading it a bit, but everything seems to be ok. They were referred about 5 months ago as they were not talking that much and it took this long to get an appointment. I think they were worried that they were talking a lot to each other and they were understanding each other, therefore they really didn't have to speak a lot of English. It seems to be all right though, they have really improved in that time, they still talk in their own way to each other, but their English has improved.
Mum is out in the garden and the girls and Chris have gone to get ice-cream so I have an hour to finish some sewing.
Here are some echidnas, wombats, a giraffe and pigs I have finished in the last week or two.

Here is a peak at what is in the bag. Embossed Leaves Sock from Interweave Knits in Koigu. I really hope I have enough wool. I've crossed my fingers.

Here are some fabulous images from a great 70s embroidery book/leaflet called Cushions for all Seasons by Coats Sewing.
I am so glad I managed to get some of these fantatstic cards from Tiel!

Amelia insisted on wearing all her new hair clips and Grace's too, the first time she has ever kept them in. Grace excelled at present openeing by the end of the day.
It is hard to believe that two years ago they were this tiny.

Now I need to go and clean the rest of the house and somehow organise a birthday party for the girls for tomorrow. I can't believe they will be two!

A new echidna, this time in pillow form. Managed to finish it yesterday while the girls were napping.

I thought I'd also share a great project with you. My friend Emma has recently started a project trying to make 1000 fairy ducks to send to Africa. Check it out here.

A couple of finished things from this week, another alien/giraffe.
A bag from some very cool canvas I found at Spotlight last week.

I think both my sewing machines need a service. I managed to fix the tension on one yesterday after reading this article. I know though it will be so much better once it has a proper clean out. I know that they will be gone for a couple of weeks so that is why I have two machines, one can go now and one can go when the other comes back.

I did discover another good thing about twins though. If you are carrying one screaming child around people just look at you like you are a horrible parent and have a horrible child, but if there is two of you carrying identical screaming children people smile at you and say "aren't they cute".
So here are some lovely pictures
Sock yarn from The Knittery.
Roving from Ewe Give Me the Knits. Both in Australia. Yeh!!

Luckily the zinnias have flowered which made me smile.
There has not been much crafting this week. I have spent a bit of time downloading music for my Dad for his birthday - way easier than teaching him to use itunes as this would involve teaching him how to use a computer. So then I had to find some music for me which ended up being a lot of dodgy 80s stuff. I really needed some more Neko Case and Sufjan Stevens, but don't think I'll admit to the rest of it. I did finish this little bag though for a 2 year olds birthday. Hopefully there will be some sewing time over the long weekend.
