A fast week

Sometimes a week has gone by before you know! This is one of those weeks. I planned to do a lot of sewing on my matroushka's but it didn't work out!
There were long day's at school, the art-exhibition (about African art)....

Here you see a few things the younger kids made.
The whole school has been working on this project and it's too much to show, but it was a great succes!

.... helping with homework and I had to help my 11 year old doughter a little, she made her own carnival costume this week! (Madame the Pompadour)

The front, with the make-up on looks much better, but she didn't want her face on the blog.

But somehow I did manage to get started with these fabrics,

And made these...

Wel I'm going to fetch my kids from school, they have their carnival feast this afternoon. I hope they had a lot of fun being Madame the pompadour and a soldier.
Have a good weekend every one!!

Het is eigenlijk om jaloers op te worden, het natuurlijke talent van kinderen, het is toch prachtig allemaal! En dan het kostuum, en vooral het kapsel, van je dochter is ook geweldig! En toch nog wat tijd voor je popjes, heerlijk toch!

Some weeks are just like that -- though your daughter's costume is wonderful!

I love children's art work. Thanks for sharing.

Your daughters costume is great but especially the wig. You really captured the hair.

Via doorklikken op weblogs kwam ik op je weblog terecht. Wat een prachtig werk van je leerlingen en wat een leuk thema. Vervelend dat je jongste de griep had maar je hebt wel een mooie voorraad poppetjes kunnen maken die er allemaal erg leuk en kleurrijk uitzien. Je blog staat bij mijn favorieten!

Hoi Heleen,
het is hier elke keer weer genieten!
Daarom heb ik je 'getagged',... Kijk maar bij mij hoe en wat en of het je iets lijkt,...

BTW ik heb je anderhalve week geleden een mailtje gestuurd met een bestelling, maar soms doet m'n andere hotmailadres vervelend, dus ik ga er nog één sturen, op een normaler tijdstip,....
;o)

Hi Heleen! I love the start of your matroushka quilt. They are going to be so adorable. I hope your kids had a fun time dressing up for carnival. How did you daughter come up with the idea to be Madame Pompadour?

The African art exhibit looks like it turned out really wonderful. The drawings of the African lady made me smile. Love the hair!

Groetjes ~
Heidi
