The week before we went on holiday Jared laid turf in our back garden and planted an apple tree. After a year of it being an unusable muddy clay pit, it was incredibly exciting to see turf going down. When we get back from our travels it should be ready for us to play on, so I made sure I finished the clothesline playhouse I started a few months ago and made a picnic blanket. I love any excuse to eat outside – it makes the world an even happier place.
Both the playhouse and the picnic blanket are taken from my favourite craft book ‘Homemade Home for Children‘. I never tire of looking at the projects in there. For the playhouse,Winston chose all the fabric colours and decided what number went on the door. Two of the windows are pockets to store snacks and cuddly toys in.
The picnic blanket is stenciled with animal foot prints in different colours – bears, birds and boars. They’re all going different places, some with friends and some not. I’m going to back it with clear oilcloth so it is wipe clean. To celebrate the all things crafty and the launch of the Samsung Galaxy edge (with its unique curved screen and incredible camera), I have an amazing giveaway for a £35 Hobbycraft voucher and a £15 app voucher.
