Here are the presents that most of us made for Arwen's 1st birthday. I will share her actual birthday later this week.Rogan made the white cat and Vellvin and Rogan made the elephant, mostly Vellvin I think.
A birthday bag of course. Only (true confessions) I made it on the day. You can't see but there are tiny beads in three colours glued in small bunches around her name over the bag. The ribbon is sewn on at the back.
I was going to make these BUT time again so Rogan and Autumn made the little people for the train below.
Stephen and Saxon made this train out of Blackwood off our property. A huge limb had fallen and so enabled us to use this much sought after wood.
This cool boat was made by: Saxon made the timber bottom, Vellvin and Rogan sanded and Eden sewed the sail. Rogan glued it together.
Morna, Myffwyn and Corbyn had to have a present too. So they caught Arwen some Bumble Bee's, regular Bee's, butterfly's and a cricket. I don't think I left anything out. They also gave their insects some flowers to feel like home.
Of course we let them go at the end of the day. The children are very good at doing this, much better than our older children were at remembering to let the insects go.
I have for many years wanted a special birthday plate for the birthday person. I first read about this in Let's make a Memory -over 16 years ago. This I imagine is the new updated version.
Of course now you can get them from any Waldorf supplier, but being the do it your self type I painted one finally. I have had the paint to do it for over a year now but just didn't get around to it.
This one is for girls and I will do a boy coloured one for our guys.
People in the train.
Stephen's Mother made and Smocked this beautiful dress. It also has smocking on the back.
Autumn made this doll/baby hammock and a little hand stitched blanket for her dolls.
My extremely fat bunny rabbit. Please do not look at him, I am so unhappy with him.
Eden sewed a lovely little skirt for Arwen with a butterfly on the side. Unfortunately Arwen got chocolate (from her party bag that her siblings were giving her) on her skirt before I had a chance to take a photo. So when it is through the washing process I will share Eden's present as well.
