The child immunisation schedule has just changed, which means less needles for him! Yesterday he had one needle which immunised him against 4 different nasties (the next one isn't until he's 4). The check-up was very fun. As soon as he entered the room, he started reading the eye chart - thought it was great! He chatted to his doctor and found things very funny. All 3 adults (his mum, dad and doc) worked very hard to entertain him while she she checked his ears, eyes, breathing, heart, throat, etc. He thought we were all a bit silly. We ended up settling for an approximate height measurement as he was quite adamant about not standing where and how he needed to for that, measuring his weight was looking like having a similar outcome until he noticed the numbers on the display, which captured his attention long enough to get a reading! It was all a total hoot until the inevitable, sharp, sad ending, but he perked up quickly.

I started weaving with recycled fabrics and plastic needles a little while ago. My first creation started as a basket but evolved into a ball, which was immediately loved and appreciated! I've started another one, which may or may not end up being a basket.
