The second week of the Easter break, and we had a visit from my aunty for a couple of days, and then our friend Peter came over from Holland. The weather wasn't in our favour most of the time but we still managed to get out and about.
This weeks new makes included a couple of these nautical print skater skirts - teamed up with a striped boatneck, perfect for the Summer (when it gets here)
Also made the new ladies tops in a linen look pale blue cotton.
and a chambray denim.
With the new term looming, the girls are going back in Spring uniform. I've made them both the new skirts with braces in red and white gingham.
and these up cycled Toy Story fabric dresses were very popular.
This weeks excursions included taking the dinosaur mad Mabel to Dinosaur World in Torquay
A new addition to our seafront is the Carlton Pavilion Theatre complex which includes cafes/bars and auditorium/cinema with a great terrace over looking the sea. We've been enjoying a glass of wine before taking a stroll along the beach early evening.
Love this pattern left by the sea at low tide
Another lovely end of the day stroll.
On Friday night the girls went over to stay with my Mum for a sleepover, while we went out for a meal and a few drinks with friends. All back to ours, and we ended up going to bed at 3am. We still kept our promise to the girls the next day to take them fossil hunting on Charmouth beach. The long walk and fresh air was just what we needed.
Unfortunately we didn't get back to the car before this enormous rain and hail storm storm drenched us to the skin.
