This weekend was one of the best I've had for a long time. Saturday we had friends round in the afternoon for a BBQ. Thankfully the sun kept shining and we spent the whole afternoon laughing, eating and playing :) It was bliss! Then in the evening after I'd put 3 exhausted girls to bed, we had a fire in the garden. The hubby and I sat around, drinking cider and chatting. As we live next door to a pub, we got to listen to the band they had playing too - and I did some late night hula-hooping! I had taken a load of photos, but somehow when I went to upload them the next morning, they'd vanished off my camera :/
Sunday we were all still tired, and it was raining really heavy. So, we had one of those lovely lazy Sunday's. I made some playdoh for the little ones in the morning, which kept them occupied for a while. In the afternoon we watched a movie (Alpha & Omega) and had (what the girls call) a 'picky-dinner' - basically I put finger foods out on the table, they help themselves to a plate full of food and we sit on the floor to eat - indoor picnic style :)
I managed to do a bit more work on the patchwork blanket I am making out of old baby clothes. It only needs a bit more work and then I can finish it off!
I managed to sneak in some painting time over the weekend too, and finished this one off:
Then yesterday I made a start on a new one - this was is the first layer of paint on the canvas, mapping out the feature. I don't tend to sketch an outline first. I'm excited to see how she will turn out!
I'll be back in a bit with this month's sponsor giveaway :)
