Now we are six

Our gorgeous Tall Small turned six this week. She had a lovely day full of presents and laughing, two hours in the swimming pool after school, and fish & chips and Malteser cake for her birthday tea:


Miss Tiny Small chose a lurid plastic Polly Pocket pool set to give to her big sister (we all know who *really* wanted it!) while I was thrown into a flat spin by her casual bedtime mention that "I will have a birthday badge to wear to school, won't I Mummy?" Now, that's a challenge I couldn't resist. I knew there was a reason I bought those needle felting supplies ...


And for the birthday party next week, I HAVE to make these!


Happy Birthday to my funny, clever, cuddly, cheeky bookloving monkey!

  11. Rather envious of the malteser cake, choice of first course and her lovely '6' star badge. Top felting there! That smiley cake is fantastic too.

    Sounds as though she had a magical day

  13. A very happy birthday Miss Tall Small - six sounds very grown up!
    Love that cake and the badge - it reminds me I made Sam a birthday badge when he was in the middle of his GCSEs that said "It's my birthday and I'll fail if I want to!"

  15. Happy Birthday Tall Small:)
    I love the '6' Brooch/Badge, it is just as lovely as the one that you sent me which is worn very often and has lots of lovely comments made about it, you should sell these.

  21. Isn't needle-felting the BEST? Addictive but hazardous (those little needles are mighty sharp)! Happiest of birthdays, Miss Tall Small!
