This week...

What a stunning day we had here today! We decided to head to the beach for the afternoon. As soon as we got there the boys headed straight for the water. Even though the water was a little cold they just couldn't help themselves. Madi on the other hand was quite happy sitting up on the sand digging with her little spade and making sandcastles with Mummy. It was great to squeeze in another beach day before winter sets in.The boys both had a fun week back at school and kindy but I think Madi was missing them a little. She loved having them both home to play with over the holidays. Paul is flat out at work as always... don't know how he's keeping up with everything!?

I got busy with my sewing machine making a few more dolls this week. They're a little addictive! LOL! They're so cute and so easy to make. Mel came over for a sewing night Thursday night... it was much more fun sewing them together! I managed to get a couple done that night and finished off the other 2 the next day. Mel made great progress on a couple for her girls and I'm looking forward to seeing hers all finished. Here are my latest four....
Tonight I thought I'd give the April Sketch Comp a go over at Anna's Craft Cupboard. I don't often get around to entering these things.... but this time I got scrapping! Here's my take on the sketch....

(The left side got sliced off a little in the scan... sorry about that!) I just love these pics of Madi... especially the larger one! Just about everything on this one is American Crafts, except for the Jillibean journalling spot, the Pink Paislee letter stickers and Sandylion butterfly stamps.

We don't have too much planned for the rest of the weekend...but might think about doing some Mother's Day shopping tomorrow. It'd be nice to be I think I'd much prefer to shop than do housework... ewww!

Well... hope you're having a great weekend. Take care!

    How nice to still be going to the beach. An early winter has hit Melbourne this weekend, so it's very cold, windy but sadly still not a lot of rain.
