Vintage Christmas 3

 
What a rather busy Bank Holiday weekend!!
I shouldn't complain really, the weather was fantastic (I can't say that anymore, it's raining & cold now)
 
We went for a lovely meal at a local pub called The Grazing Cow, which specialised in Rotisserie!
Yummy! Check out the welcoming steel artwork!
This cow has the most incredible eyelashes ever :D
 
 
We also spent a looong day in sunny Windsor at Legoland!
Yep, we are crazy about these little plastic bricks :)
(Especially hubby!)
 
 
We drove past the Windsor Castle & the Queen must have been in residence as the flag was out!
 
I also found time to make some rhubarb jam and bake some cupcakes with my son
You're guessing correctly, they were yummy & they are all gone!
 
Despite this busy weekend, I also found time to stitch a bit of course!
 
Here is my latest progress on Vintage Christmas from CCN
Apologies, I didn't press my fabric before the photo shoot session...
 
Happy Stitching!

Quel weekend!
Je n'ai pas vu passé ce jour férié
Petites sorties restau & Legoland
Session cuisine ou j'ai fais de la confiture de rhubarbe & des cupcakes avec mon petit monstre!
J'ai aussi trouvé le temps de broder quelques petites croix sur Vintage Christmas de CCN
Un vrai régal, les couleurs sont toutes douces!
 
A tout à l'heure...

    1. My other half is what we call an AFOL (adult fan of lego)!!! The nearest lego shop for us is Milton Keynes or Manchester... There used to be one in Birmingham but hubby must have not spend enough money there as it is now closed :( I love Bluewater, it's HUGE!!! We plan on going in August!!! Daddy Mii is now hook on these bricks too (thanks to my hubby) and regularly pop to the Lille shop to stock up (as you know, we have family living near Lille). We are so jealous, Lille is such a beautiful part of France (anything in the North for me really). So of course, we took my family to Legoland... Daddy Mii was like a kid in a sweet shop!! :D Thanks for your comment on the stitching too! x
