School Holiday Fun...

On Monday we met up with some friends at our local park for a catch up. We ended up bringing my girlfriends two kids home with us for a play (not sure if your kids are the same, but whenever we get together with friends, they never want the play date to come to an end). I was more than happy to have my friends two over as they kept mine amused. The boys spent most of their time either playing Lego or kicking the footy across the road at the park. While they were all amused, I quickly made another table mat for our coffee table in the living room. I used some Amy Butler fabric together with a really heavy linen look fabric that I picked up at the op shop a little while ago. I found a huge piece of this linen that is an ugly darkish brown on the right side, but on the back is this perfect linen colour...so I use the back of it.


I set the girls up out the front with some embroidery. They look so sweet out there stitching away. (Mental note...must make some more cushion covers for the faded cushions out the front)!!!


Look at their sweet designs and very neat stitching.

The girls did a brilliant job on their embroidery! Love the table mat - the linen look fabric was a great find.

What a perfect holiday activity! I cant wait until my wee ones will sit still long enough for some stitching fun.
