Letter of the week: T

T in latvian TĒTIS (father)
Tree, Trust, Tea, Tease, Tangled, Triceratops :D

Around the time we changed the staircase in our home, there where a loooooot of interest in hammering so I took the advantage of that and put my little man to work :) I put few spots on piece of wood and Oli hammered nails and after that I let them colour in with those small rubber bands usually used for bracelets .. (i really wanted to "colour" in with string as anyone who loves pinterest would have noticed all around there and everywhere else)
Btw, I had thought the hammering part would be the most fun for the kids but as it turned out, they loved the "colouring" way more!


after all of that I decided that it is time for me to write up pattern for T :)
so here it comes ->


& this one is pretty much as simple as first one I showed you -> I ;)

I remember first time I ever tried peanutbutter I thought: Why would anyone ever eat such a stupid thing ... I was teenager at the moment - not to mention - hooked on anything chocolately :D
now I will choose peanutbutter&jelly sandwich 9 out of 10 times I eat a sandwich and that one other time nutella :P not much has changed - sweet tooth has won the game! :D
