A day of disasters

Yesterday was one of those days, you know the sort. Daddy-ebi decided to take Ebi-kun out in the morning for a couple of hours so I could get some stuff done. I wanted to make some rabbits, my plan was to make 2 for presents and to make 2 more for the shop. I had made a pattern for an idea that had been in my sketch book for quite some time. Half way through, I get a call from Daddy-ebi to say little one had thrown up everywhere in the car, should he bring him home? Apparently Ebi-kun was feeling OK and wanted to play, so off they went. Back at the sewing machine, I sewed up the first bunny and stuffed it and taa-daa I had an alien, looked nothing  like a rabbit. Grrrrr.
So, I decided to try something else, I had the Scottie dog pattern in my folder, downloaded from Allsorts so I thought I would try that. The first one I used the actual pattern size and it was a right fiddle to sew on the machine, many a swear word was muttered, just as well little one wasn't around.
The sickie boys arrived home, the car stank, all his clothes stank - luckily daddy had been prepared and taken a change of clothes with him. We had lunch and did the shopping then when daddy sorted out the stinky sickie car, Ebi-kun had a nose bleed, blood everywhere! wahhhh.

Anyway, it all calmed down, Ebi-kun is OK and I gave the dog pattern another go but enlarged the pattern which was much easier to work with. I also made a matching bib to go with the little dog but it's not quite finished. At least I had something at the end of the day. 

I would like to say it got better but Ebi-kun had another nose bleed in the night and then ended up in our bed! Let's hope today is better.....
