Little surfer girls

Happy New Year - 2009 - wow!

We've been enjoying some sun and surf and have discovered that since last summer our sand-bunny has turned into a mad surfer girl.

Subsequently I can't get that Beach Boys song "Little surfer girl" out of my head - it's probably stuck in yours too now.

We've been picnicing with family,

learning to toast marshmallows on the fire,

driving off into the distance in a sand car,

playing on the beach with dad

and of course tackling the waves.

I took a break from the sewing machine for a good ten days (possibly a record except when giving birth), and am now deciding what to tackle next.

A bundle of new Oliver + S and Indygo Junction patterns from here has got my mind ticking over again.

I'll be back with a list of things to try/do for the year to come - hopefully you'll join me on a few.

Here's hoping 2009 is a good one for you all.

The sand car looks like fun. My father once made me a sand helicopter. I was stoked.

Awww looks like you had an amazing time away (jealous!!) Your girls are all growing up so quickly... My Miss C used to have the same top that your little surfer girl is wearing!

I stumbled across your blog and have enjoyed looking at all your creations. I'm a fellow crafty mummy with three kids under three- a 2 year old boy and 5 month old twin girls. It's great to find someone in a similar situation enjoying sewing and craft. I look forward to following your crafty pursuits this year.
