Babysitting

 
You would think I would know by now not to leave things out when a grandchild comes to visit but in fact this time I am not quite guilty. I had actually put this up and hidden the yellow felt pen from a certain two year old's view. I think they are making two year olds much more clever than they used to.
 
 
Thankfully it isn't as bad as it could have been - she worked on the back and because I had the backing on for stitching it protected the front from most of it. There is only one blob which came through to the front and it isn't on the stitched part. I am relieved that I don't have to start again.
 
It looks like we will have her visit regualrly on Wednesdays from now on so I guess I have to adjust. It is amazing how quickly you forget. It is only 8 years since I had my own 2 year old but I am not used to it now.
 
I have only two days to finish this one for the Stitch a long, I'm still planning on getting there although we are going out tonight to a concert with Neil Finn and Paul Kelly. I wonder what they would think if I sat stitching during that.

Oh darn. Your bag will hold loving memories of Z. wont it. It is good that the front is not too coloured.

Yes some 2 year olds are a lot cleverer these days...well obviously my great niece Lucy and your Z are! lol Glad there wasn't too much 'damage'. Love those felts in your banner...did you make them?

mmm we live & learn - everyday! Good luck finishing - I see Chookyblue is warming up the whip already!

I guess you will have that memory every time you use the bag, at least she didn't find the scissors. Enjoy the concert, even without your stitching. X

So pleased the colour isn't on the stitching.
Good luck n getting your bag finished.

Ah, they probably would not mind, but your portable ott light might distract those sitting around you.

I sure hope that was a washable marker.

Oh Lynda what a relief that your stitching is not ruined. Yes little children are much cleverer these days, but you find a way to outsmart!
I hope you enjoy making the rest of the bag x
