A bit of everything!

It's been a fun long weekend over here - even the sun came out to play!!!!!

Friday night saw me home alone so I made a start on my Aeroplane Bag, which I'm planning on taking to Retreat with me in July. Being me I can't resist making a few changes so it's taking a little longer than it should but hopefully it will all work out okay...!


Saturday and Sunday my Mum and Dad visited for a couple of days which involved lots of chatting, leisurely meals and some gentle walking: lots of fun!

Today we finally ventured in to the Forest of Dean. We've not really had much chance to explore since we moved down so it was really lovely to get out and about and see some of the beautiful scenery. It kind of felt like we were on Holiday!

We were headed towards the Sculpture Trail, specifically to see the Giants Chair. It was really big (as you'd expect!) with great texture and I really enjoyed how the chair 'framed' different pictures depending on where you stood. We're planning on going back again to explore a bit more of the trail sometime soon (Littlest Boy wasn't too keen on the steep hills, so we need to build up his stamina!)


So I'm feeling quite relaxed and ready for half-term week and lots of sewing! I hope you managed a weekend of fun? See you soon with a new bag!

Sounds a lovely weekend Sonia! Looking forward very much to seeing your aeroplane bag - it will be fab, I know it! Forest of Dean looks gorgeous and it's always nice to discover places like this not too far from home. Enjoy half term with your littlies - hope the sun stays out to play - here he sadly seems to have gone home again! E x

I clicked on the Areoplane Bag link, and ooo!, it's lovely! In fact, there are a few bags on that site that I like, and I have been thinking of making a shopping bag recently. Good luck with your bag. The photos of the forest are great, I hope there weren't too many midgies!
