We might not be experiencing the extreme cold we are used to this time of the year, but we were still housebound today because of freezing rain and high winds. Nearly a month has passed since I last mentioned the weather, (I know this, because I've been trying really hard not to go on about it!) but the winter here is usually pretty extreme. The thing is about those -20C days (of which we've had none so far) is that they are generally gorgeous days, not a cloud in the sky, wonderfully sunny and a crisp, clean feeling in the air. Granted, you may only want to be outside briefly on days such as these, but personally I prefer the cold and sunny combination to a warm and miserable grey one any time.
Anyway the upshot of this is that the weather (and no Daddy around) was making us a little glum. So obviously a bit of kiddywink craft was in order. We made some heart garlands, first by melting wax crayon shavings in between wax paper and then by cutting out hearts and sewing them together using this technique. I've never sewed paper before, but this was pretty straightforward.
And look, you can tell from the pictures, we eventually had a bit of sun!
