Creative weekend

This weekend my 3 DD's and myself treated ourselves to a creative retreat as my DH was off on a boys w/e at an RSPB reserve.

The girls all had lovely ideas for things to make and had been looking forward to the w/e for several weeks.

My DD1 wanted to make an advent calendar like the one I made for them when they were young, and this is the gorgeous result she came up with.

I know her children will just love it tomorrow.

My DD3 decided that it was time her little son had something more than a feather duster to ride around the house on after he'd been watching the horses pass by their window every day.

I think he'll be one happy little chap on Christmas day, don't you? He's also got some lovely bunting and bags for his new bedroom.

My DD2 decided to take a well earned break from fabrics and join her Mum and Grandmother in our passion for knitting.

We were all ready for a lovely feast on Saturday evening and started the meal with this baked camembert.

My DD's work extremely hard juggling work commitments with caring for their families and it was lovely to be able to spoil them a little bit over the w/e and see their wonderful creative talents blossom.
Thanks for making it sooo..... special, can't wait for the next one.
