Weekending!

This weekend I got to participate in a real live craft swap (so far they’ve only been online). I made several “tea for two” sets that included a hand embroidered spring sheep mug rug, two hand stamped linen napkins and of course some tea in a little paper pouch. I received some lovely goodies in return too.

It was nice getting together with some crafty ladies, eating yummy homemade food and chatting about babies and birth and of course, crafts.

The rest of the weekend was a slow one. We stayed close to home because Jeff was feeling under the weather. We spent Sunday afternoon enjoying the beachy weather. And I got to finish a dress for myself and a little spring top for Ellie.

I’m finding children’s clothes are far more forgiving than busty adult women clothes. But, even if I may look like I’m five months pregnant (which I am definitely NOT), I’m still loving wearing clothes that I made for myself. And I’m hoping that if I keep at it, my skills will get better and they will fit me a little better. In the mean time, I’ll enjoy my creations for what they are, comfortable and, I think, pretty darn cute.

Ellie was quite the wild child on the beach. I think daylight savings and last week’s full moon was getting to her. She was like Max and Peter Pan’s Lost Boys all rolled into one. Oh my wild beachy child!

It was such a nice weekend. We lazed about on Saturday. Ellie and I had spent the night at my Mom’s house because my Dad was out-of-town visiting relatives in Florida. So, we rose early, drank tea played some more with Gramma and headed home. Chores were done. Home grown sprouts were eaten on everything! It was warm and windy all weekend, so we headed to the beach on Sunday and to the sea center we regularly frequent. We ended the weekend with a late evening park date and a gorgeous sunset. It really was a nice weekend. How was yours? How are my east coasters doing? As much as I love being able to wear t-shirts and flip-flops till late evening, I’m wishing for some real winter weather. I don’t think we will get much of it here though.
