Slow Weekend...

It was Labour Weekend here in New Zealand,
and oh my a three day weekend is so lovely.
Time to sit down and chat over dinners that aren't rushed.

Enjoying each other's company and to laugh together.

A time to sit a while, be inspired and plan for some future projects,
oh I love that part, don't you.

I'm definitely going to make this quilt from Jane Brocket's new book.
I love all of Jane's books, sometime I should review all the books I have of hers.

On Saturday it was glorious sunshine and I planted our vege garden
and some flowers. And David and Reuben did lots of tidying outside.
Sunday was nice too, and we had a family dinner at my mum's place.
Then yesterday it poured with rain, absolutely bucketed down
and we all got to have a nice quiet day.

I got lots of study done too while David was a round to referree the kiddos
which was great.

Playhuts in the living room are a real sign of a relaxed day aren't they?

Ah it was a great weekend. I loved it.
