Who's that?

Who's that in my olive tree?

Oh! Look!

No Ana, she is mine. Give her to me!

Hannah, You bought me the most beautiful sewing book. Not only that, but it's also called Sew Easy and as the title implies it should be easy. And yet I've managed to make a mess of my little project. On page 143 there's the cutest Big Canvas Beach Bag. I thought, yeah, I can make that. I bought metres and metres of nice beachy canvas but then when I got home I thought... what am I doing? I've never made anything apart from a bib and a very simple bunny (all with your help) so I panicked and decided to do a small prototype version. So here it is... Oh! By the Way, I started it about two months ago.

Compare my rubbish version with the one in the book. Ans yes, I know mine has no handles but by that stage I had messed it up. Sorry Hannah, I'll try harder next time, but I know now I'm not born with the sewing gene. I love looking at the book over and over, though!

Frame for Camilla

I have now bought a frame for my lovely Camilla Engman. It should be hanging in Ana's room but I love to look at it so much that for the moment it is staying in the living room. Unfortunately, you can see me in the background which is totally unintended.

And tomorrow... something I've made, but don't get too excited.

Picnic with Cath Kidston

We are now the proud owners of the cutest Cath Kidston Sun tent. I think it's called something else but that's what i call it. It's so gorgeous I want to live in it. Today, to fulfil daddy's wishes, we had another picnic and I felt I had to improve on last week's spread:

So for father's day I bit more of an effort:

And for dessert...

Ana loves the tent!

At last!

Look what I got through the post. I've been waiting for days and at last it arrived yesterday.

I love it. It's such a beautiful thing. It got a big creased because we have a very grumpy postman and he likes to force big letters through the letterbox.

Thanks Camilla!

Heading north

We went up north for the weekend and I was so bored after hours driving I had to make this. Can you see what it is?

And now?

She loves the view
