Amelia wearing her new Blue Belt

We are very proud of Amelia, who received her new Blue Belt on Tuesday evening, after her grading last Saturday.  She has shown great discipline in learning her patterns and moves (Taekwondo).


She didn’t even seem to be particularly stressed by the panel of 6 judges, and the crowd of about 150 people watching as she went through her paces with the other kids in her group, (that’s her on the right).

Blue was certainly on her mind this week.

A pile of blue fabric

This is the little scene that I found on my cutting table the other day.  You can be sure that there is a whole story that goes along with this set up – probably involving a broken arm for teddy, if the bandage is any indication.  Amelia makes good use of my fabric scraps and all the little creatures that I have made – especially my two Monster Chefs – to create little stories.  It amuses her for whole hours at a time.  I am so in awe of her imagination, I hope she never grows out of it.
