So, onto the weekend, it has been fun packed and hectic and of course involves some craft. First up was our local veg and craft show on Saturday.
|My entry into the limerick competition.|
Yes, you have seen it correctly, it is a poodle made out of cauliflower! She came second and was thrilled.
We won lots of certificates and the whole family entered a range of competitions.
As soon as the prize giving was over and we had collected our exhibits at 6pm we dumped the stuff at home and raced to the cabin at the farm. We didn't want to miss sleeping over this weekend with all the mild dry weather we have been having.
We celebrated our day with Bloke's second prize apple wine and the children had a fizzy 'wine' too.
Then we had to eat Bloke's second prize courgette cake.
While waiting for the fire to heat up the girls and I opened our prize money. Didn't I mention prize money? £1 for a win, 50p for 2nd and 30p for third prize. Whoooo! They thought they were rich with £2.50 each.
Sometimes you get toasted marshmallows just right...
I reminded them not to burn their lips on the hot marshmallows and as I turned around I saw them cooling them down like this - it amused me.
I left my new bookmark at the cabin as I enjoyed reading Big Sis's nature journal. She records all the wildlife she has seen every time we go to our cabin, she looks them up in the reference books we keep there. We bought her the journal for her birthday. She wanted me to cover up her picture of a frog - I loved it but she didn't.
So a little bit of everything: crochet, wine making, baking, learning and ultimately on Sunday afternoon after a long walk with lovely friends, some relaxing in a deck chair.
Hope you had a great weekend whatever you got up to.
