Ready for the hols?

Oh my!  The frantic wheels of life turning round for the last week of term.  Haven't got very much crafting done at all as I had 200 pages of The Woman in White to finish in a day for my Pretty Nostalgic bookclub meeting, and do you know what, I did it!  If you haven't read it, I'd recommend it, for even though it's over 600 pages long, it's an easy read.

It's the 6 year olds birthday next week, so we had an impromptu party last weekend for her great auntie visiting, and then another this weekend for the grandparents coming over! 

Hurridly made cake for last weekend!

We will be doing it all over again on Wednesday when she officially turns 7 and apparently a visit to Chester Zoo is in order to see the giant insect exhibition - photos of that to come! 

The 4 year old had her ballet show last weekend which was lovely, with all of the dancers showing what they can do.  At the end, they all got certificates and then awards were given out for Achievement in ballet and street dance.  We didn't expect anyone from the baby ballet group to even be considered, so imagine our delight, when out of every ballet dancer, our littleist won the award!  To say we are very proud is an understatement!

Craftwise, I've just picked up this beauty from the library, in the hope that I may be able to make something this holiday!  We shall see!!!

Aren't these the cutest egg cosies?!

I've also signed up to Crochet Camp care of this blog  Our first project is a pot holder which I've yet to find time to start though!  If you're a beginner at crochet, or wanting to start, I'd recommend a look.  You can also find it on facebook.

Hope it's not too hot where you are!
