Such a contrast!

Last weekend I was away at Sunny Stones for our 2nd annual Crafty Mamas Sewing retreat. We had such a wonderful time. The retreat was perfect for us, the food delicious and the hosts Kate, Matt and family very welcoming. We lucked out and had dreadful weather- which meant we had the prime excuse to stay in doors with our two fires and craft! Rhonni from Hot Rocks boutique coffee helped keep us crafting into the wee hours of the donating a heap of her yummy boutique coffee beans for us to grind and brew.

It was so wonderful to catch up with every one again, we can't wait to return!

And this weekend? Stuck indoors, pouring rain, three kids with temperatures and sore throats. Ah, such is life. But I did get a little bit of quick sewing in ...

RIVIERA leggins is from the book Sewing Clothes Kids Love, by Nancy Langdon and Sabine Polehn. You can get a copy in the CM shop.
 IMKE is also in the book, I just remembered! I used my old pattern, which is also in the Cm Shop. IMKE  has several variations, this is the plain wider version. Blue STELLA and Polka dot Flap Happy knit.  Velour iron on is a Farb fave from the Cm Shop.

And a bit of Kitchen craft too..two loaves of bread. It's that kind of day. And when a sick son asks for curry pumpkin soup and bread..who can say no?

Sounds like heaven followed by a slap of reality!
