With Easter and the first week of the school holidays under our belt things have been busy. Not frantic, just family life, running around here and there with the kids. The first week went quickly so I'm going to saviour this week a little more.
Here are some nice things from the past week.......
Craving colour at the moment so new cushions have been bought.
And a new rug.
Feijoas (Pineapple Guava) season in full swing. My nephew dropped of another box, just when I had nearly gotten to the bottom of the last one! This week I have been making Feijoa crumble and sponge cake. More jam is on the cards I think.
A parcel from overseas and a friend. Sewing goodies galore. I just love the little wicker basket.
I have finished sew school now and will update you next week of my progress. I have a few projects on the go that I'm hoping to finish soon. I've been spending a lot of time in the garden lately and enjoying books and movies in the evenings. I don't know if it's the change of season and recent bugs but I've been feeling so tired in the evenings.
A very sweet pin cushion - love the chicken print.
More washi tape.......
And new to me fabric tape. I've bought it for gifts before but have never used it before.....any ideas?
Pins for my quilting.
Hazy afternoons and leaves disappearing from the vines. I love the sight of washing hung on the line.
We have been moving furniture off the grass and back onto the gravel for the colder months. Clearing and weeding gardens and lots of tidying up around the house.
Just love these three. Bell turned fourteen this week, can you believe it?
I'll back tomorrow with the 52 project although from now on it will be a little different.
I'll just be photographing the boys. I have noticed a shift with Bell lately. She has been wanting more independence and with that she spends less and less time hanging out with us. It has become more noticeable in the past month or so. A letting go has been needed on both sides. She is craving more freedom so with that I won't be including her in the portrait project anymore a decision that was decided between us both. My girl is growing up.
Have a wonderful weekend xo
