Circles in the sand...

So our weekend was a little more than a couple of days, we had so much fun we thought we would stretch it out a little...
 This visit to the beach was yet another success, we had a couple of days of great weather and a couple of days of rain...as you would expect with our British summer.  Lots of playing got done, both by this Mommy and the children...The silk socks got finished... 
...and the boys spent lots of time rolling around in the open air...
A small amount of sewing has been accomplished, I am so missing my sewing time, I know however once the summer is over I will be back to it so I comfort myself with a small projects just to keep that addiction fed! So another block for my latest quilt is complete...

The weather was set to change so we thought we would head home, we spent the morning on the beach and then hit the road...
As I drove the rain came down and what should have been a couple of hours in the car went on to be nearly five hours, driving through torrential rain and at one stage I was unable to see the markings on the road...scary...I arrived home and went straight out to my knitting night...It was good to be back home and  immediately slipping back  into the the rhythm of home life...when I returned, I popped a pizza in the oven and caught a glimpse of myself in the oven (we have a mirrored oven) due to the stressful drive I had huge panda eyes, as I had rubbed my eyes whilst driving to try and relieve the stress of all the concentration needed to NOT crash the car...I ran in and then out again and had not looked at myself...So I should now rename the blog...PANDA SEWS, KNITS, CRAFTS AND MOTHERS!!!

Hi Suzie. Have just sat for about half an hour and read a load of your old posts. I've only just discovered you have a camper and now I am in total envy :o).
I so want a camper. All the mini holidays you can have. I'm working on my OH about it as he's a diver so we'd be able to lug all his gear around too.
Glad you had such a fab time. We are off to Cornwall tomorrow. Just hope the weather improves a bit.

That first picture is beautiful. I really love the faded colors of it.

Lovely pictures. Sounds like a nice day. Lol about the panda eyes - I have done that before too!

Sounds like you've had another lovely weekend, despite the rain at the end.
Love your socks, such vibrant colours, beautiful.

Sounds like summer over here in Portland and our beach! Some sun and some rain.

Love the new blog name!:)

I totally need to learn how to knit socks!

Love the beach hut, very cute. Glad you didn't crash the car, panda eyes are a small price to pay and what a kind knitting group not to mention them to you. I take it it's not your usual look for a knitting night? Hope the rain clears up.

I love the effect of that center square in your quilt block. Great idea.

Love the middle piece of your quilt block especially - did you make it yourself?
