Wonderful weekend

I spend the weekend with my sisters :-)
Absolutely wonderful! The best time ever. I love my sisters so much!

So I was away, no time to write anything. Not that that would be a noticeable difference... I'm really bad blogger :-D

But, September...
Mabon countdown calender.
Make a grape cluster, a couple of big leaves to decorate the hook carrying all the little grape baggies holding the goodies, and a  bunch of little grape baggies.
You can do the baggies like this: Lined drawstring bag
or like this: play mat (though obviously a lot smaller - and it is OK to just sew in the drawstring, not even put it in a... what it's called... channel?

Anyway, it's really easy. You can also choose to make the grapes of paper, and then simply sew two oval pieces of paper together, or glue them together.

What to put in as surprises?
Mabon is the Feast of Fruit - put in fruit related items. If you can't think of anything, use candy. Grape and apples are the best choice, but any fruit is good.
Generally, you can use any "stocking stuffer" list to come up with ideas.

But, here's a couple
1) grape smelling playdough
2) grape smelling bath bomb
3) coloring pages with Mabon theme
4) dot-to-dot puzzle pages with Mabon theme
5) little notebook with color design in Mabon theme
6) purple pen
7) leopard plushie or amigurumi
8) grape juice powder
9) autumn colored gloves
