so this is my first attempt at sharing my recent sewing.
As winter approaches (actually the first day greats us in the morning here) our younger girls were in need of some new winter nightwear. Quite a few years ago, in fact when Autumn and Eden were 5 and 3 I made them winter plaid nighties, my first attempt at them.
However as it grew colder Vellvin kept saying to me 'Lets make the nighties and winter skirts for the little girls." So I sorted through my patterns and finally decided on this Simplicity 9942 that I have had in anticipation of making new nighties. I did not do the large ruffle around the bottom as it requires so much more fabric.
We had some red flannel left over from last year and so we began to cut and stitch.
We actually did not have enough red flannel for Vellvin and Arwen as well and so we purchased some pink with a pattern on it for them. This will be my next task to make them!
I also have been reading Disconnected Kids: The Groundbreaking Brain Balance Program for Children with Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, and Other Neurological Disorders.
This has been a real eye opener and I recommend it for anyone who has had a child with one of these labels or even 'Developmental Delay.'
It talks about retraining the brain to overcome these issues and gives the exercises to do this at home.
From my research it is very similar if not identical to the Arrowsmith School practices which I cannot find any 'at home programme' for.
Well I will be off to check out the other great sewing and reading links at Elizabeth's blog this week. Hope to see you there.
Blessings to you and your homes,
