The picnic quilt that I made last week was put to good use at the weekend when we went up the Brockhole Country Park on Lake Windermere..
Gorgeous weather meant that paddling was in order..
And lots of relaxing..
Another of the little sundresses I have been making, note to self ; make one dress to start with to check on sizes, instead of cutting out three and realising you should have made a size bigger !, never mind its o.k. over little leggings..
When was the last time you received a hand written letter ?
ElizabethD over at French Village Life is organising a hand written letter swap, I know my older two children 9 and 10 years were hoping to take part, but I'm not sure that there were any other children of their age, so if anyone has any children/grandchildren of a similar age who would like to write letters to my two please do pop over to French Village Life and sign up..
Did you know that 1 in 5 children in the UK have never received a handwritten letter ?
That statistic amazed me, and made me really think, My children always write letters to say thank you for birthday/Christmas gifts etc, but never really receive a letter in return. I hope that receiving a letter will not be a pleasure that my children miss out on..
