Snippets: Spring Holidays

The blog has been somewhat neglected this week due to it being the school holidays (I owe you a Sewing Bee post, which hasn't been forgotten) so I thought I'd show you a few of the things that have been keeping us busy between spending time with different friends. 

:: Woodland walks with a dog that's impossible to photograph
New life is popping up everywhere, and the longer days mean that we are getting a chance to enjoy it a lot more. D had some time off and enjoyed playing silly games like 'hoodies in the woodies' with the kids ... 
... but cleaning up afterwards is never as much fun!

:: Marvelling at the fleeting beauty of Spring
Spring. Blossom.

:: The beach at low tide
I managed to take some snaps of the new design I've been working on -  it's called 'Seafoam' and is a one-skein convertible shawl/shrug. It was freshly off the needles when it got shoved into my bag so it's not blocked or properly finished, but here's a peek...

Little Miss has been crafting too - with my mum's help, she's made her first garment - a skirt. She's wearing it in the picture below and is very pleased with it.
At the beach
I can't promise next week will be much better as school is off until 23rd April, but we are enjoying plenty of fresh air and fun - I hope you are too!


  1. Gorgeous pics of the outdoors and your lovely family. Congratulations to Little Miss making her first skirt. What a talented family you are. Have another lovely week with your little ones, time flies and blogging will wait, growing up doesn't. I will wait patiently for your sewing bee post. Have a lovely weekend.

  2. I like that pic of the ohana boots! That would be a cute picture for your foyer or if it was done in wood or something with your last name underneath.
