Yesterday was April showers – Today snow! It looked like January outside this morning when we got up. Daddy and Em decided to get out quick before it all disappeared to made a little snowman …

… & with the rain non-stop yesterday I decided to make some Pom Poms with Em. It took a while to get going but here is the end result. She didn’t want me to trim the edges as she said she liked it all ‘sticky out’!

I then added the beads to the centre and a felt flower and brooch pin on the back, so that Em can give it to Nana :o)

So it's currently sitting on my 'half finished projects' pile.

Useful links – If you make a lot of Pom Poms get yourself one of these Pom Pom makers (http://www.sewandso.co.uk/cgi-bin/find/db.cgi?db=zoom&uid=&Prod_Code=45163&ww=on&do=search_results). They’re great and do it twice as fast.
