WIP Wednesday

A cold front has made its way up to Johannesburg and it is really freezing here tonight! We have got two fires going to try and warm up our home. Today is WIP Wednesday and this is what we have been busy with this week. Erin and Jenna have both finished their Middle Ages Blocks and so I thought this beautiful castle would be a fun paper craft for them to build. It really has turned out amazing and they loved constructing it together. I bought it from Book Depository with free shipping. There are even jousting knights, tents and people that can be placed anywhere on the castle grounds. It arrives in a book and the castle pieces are cut out, folded and glued together.

I am now onto the 4th round of the yoke of my Shalom, welcome to all the new people who have joined in the Shalom KAL, it is not too late if you would like to join:) You can just leave a comment and I will add you to the list here.

I have also been working on a custom order for a unicorn, I just need to add her horn and then she is ready to ship tomorrow. I have knitted her in the softest mohair, plied with a magical silver thread…

Our two sweet dogs snuggling up together to keep warm, wishing you all a wonderful day…

    What a cozy day. I used to buy Usborn for my kids, too. The paper quality is so high, and the printing the best. The sun is actually out today, and I wore short sleeves when I put the horses off the grass this morning. Still a chill, but there’s hope. I love it when my dogs spoon like this, also.

    Your soft baby is lovely. And she’s listening to the world around her so alertly. I have put away all my felt and buttons and floss and picked up my needles again. Now – to finish my own horse pattern, and then to try my hand at yours and your lion and so many other things –

    Wow cold there. I love the dogs curled up together, too. The castle promises many hours of imaginative activity for the whole family. Just a lovely post; thanks.

    When I saw the tiny picture of your girls’ castle in my blogroll I thought it was made from paper mache…I am relieved to find that it it more of a three dimensional puzzle…otherwise you woudl all just be too clever for me to cope with! Looks great, as does your warm knitting.

    That castle looks like a rainy day project my Mr. C would love. He really likes puzzles.

    I on the other hand, wouldn’t mind snuggling up with the dogs with a good book. 😀

    I really want to join your KAL. But I’m so lost. I’ve looked at the modifications listed on your Rav group thread and.. gah! So confused! I need to find a way to make it (much) bigger. I bought two skeins of Cascade Eco Wool (the only bulky yarn I could afford!) but one needs to be dyed (all they had left was one white and one beautiful rusty redish orange).

    Right. I’m babbling at you. Sorry. (:
