Weekend Wonders

We were treated to some absolutely glorious weather this last weekend gone. The perfect time to start catching up on chores in the garden.I managed to get the lawns cut and some of the weeding done, there is still a long way to go but things out there are looking a lot better already. After some hard work I was lazing around on the lawn and Molly came to join me. I was trying to take her picture but she was more interested in rubbing up against the camera than posing for it!Eventually she settled for rubbing herself in the grass rather than against the camera!Also at the weekend we had the pleasure of looking after my friends two girls for a while. We managed to pack in lots of fun while we were with them including some sewing, as they both like making things. So I'd like to introduce you to the sock gang we made.We had a fun trip in to town to find some cheap socks to buy, sods law dictated we all wanted socks from different packs so I think we came away with 9 pairs in the end, enough to make 18 sock bunnies!This here is Sparkle, she was made by Elli who is the youngest of the girls, she's 9. She did all the stitching herself.Elli also helped Dave with his sock creature too. He got bored after stitching up the ears so Elli did all the stuffing and the face on this one too. It's called Delli - Dave and ElliThis is Lucy Cooper. Amber made this one. She is a girl after my own heart, she picked out these cute skull and heart socks, which I love! And I also love the tongue hanging out of Lucy's mouth.Finally this is numbskull. This one is mine. He's called numbskull as he has a great big green skull on the back of his head.

We had such a brilliant weekend, made going back to work on Monday so much harder, lol!
