Spring projects

The things we do!

It's school holidays, so I've taken some time off work to look after and spend some quality time with number3. 
Day one was yesterday and we had the morning out, drinks at our favourite, Cafe Bliss, then movies it was to watch Diary of a Wimpy Kid. (wasn't  my choice but so glad we went...FUNNY!!!)  We then picked up number2 from work for lunch, and then it was home and time for craft.

We had chosen a special project just for the holidays where number3 could use my sewing machine for the first time.  We had gone to spotlight last Saturday and picked out the fabric.

Oooooh, will stop there, will share more when project is finished.

Day two (today), and it's a beautiful Spring day. 

I had hoped to have been able to tackle this spot at some stage while I'm off, so today was the day.
(what's the saying...'Make hay while the sun shines'!)

I really didn't know what to do, so into town I went to find some inspiration...

and look what I found at the local hardware store...Perfect!

Off I went to buy some blocks, timber and paint...

and this is what I came up with...

What do you think?

Now day three???
Oh yeah, more sewing with number2 and that special project.
