How we spent our weekend:
relaxing scary kind of ways

Its almost over, but we have had a top weekend. We are trying to make it a new rule in our house to visit the beach each weekend, and so far all of us are loving it. We're not big on swimming at this time of the year, but we are loving the fresh, salty air and warmth of the sun. Grace is the only one happy to brave it and get wet. Yes, sadly we are the indoors, sheltered types who really really need to venture away from the home comforts (computers/sewing machine/guitars/books) and get a good dose of Vitamin D.
I was lecturing Luke the other day about how he spends 95% of his day indoors, to which I was quickly corrected to 100%. Its kind of sad (but funny at the same time) because we realised that he gets in the car (which is undercover) to go to work at the office (which has undercover parking) and then reverses the process to come home at night. A big fat "0" for sunshine. Hence, the new rule to visit the beach on weekends.

I have been sewing this weekend too (surprise, surprise). The work in progress is a jacket for Grace, made from fabric I found at the Salvos last year. Photos to come.
Crafty Mamas is running a competition this month for a project that utilizes vintage/recycled materials, so I am thinking of entering.
Speaking of competitions, the amazing Bloesem Kids is having a giveaway contest. Check them out and let me know if you join in on the challenge!
