What would you wish for?

Hi all,

I'm so glad it is Friday. I've been so sleepy today. No idea why, but I will be pleased to get some sleep soon. Martha had her last visit to her new nursery today before she starts properly next Monday. I wanted to get her settled in nursery before I think about going back to work in September (I am hoping to do some supply teaching a couple of days a week) as she really didn't like her day a week in nursery in Sydney. It gave Daisy and I a couple of hours to do things that Daisy wanted to do. It was nice to spend a bit of time just the two of us, although I did miss Martha.

This week, stamp Fairy have a Teddy bear's picnic recipe - a bear image, 3 flowers, 2 ribbons (one ribbon is hiding under the sentiment and flowers) and one sentiment. I decided to make a ribbon flower, but spent ages trying to find a needle. Most of my sewing stuff is still on the boat somewhere on its way here. I have used a sweet Fairy Linda image - I love her (well, I love all of these images). I have used a sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday, which I will be using again I think.
