A family weekend

No sewing to share as we had a big weekend with family.  
John and I spent Saturday playing with our darling little Henry at Hay's Paddock, a really wonderful playground in Kew.  Well worth visiting if you have little kids in your life and you are visiting Melbourne.
On Sunday we tried a fabulous (new to us) breakfast spot.  The Kallista Tearooms.

At Sunday lunch a lot of the Daly family got together as John's sister was over from Perth.  Meant I got to spend some time with my niece Sarah's sweet little girl, Olivia. Such a little sweetie-pie.

This was a big weekend for me so I arrived home and fell asleep, not waking up till 11.00 Monday morning. Oh how I love sleeping in.
I have a lovely collection of china, much of it collected before the boys were born.  Some of it is out on plate racks so needs regularly washing for dust.
When it's down off the rack, it is a good chance to play and rearrange so that's exactly what I've been doing this afternoon.
A great free design from Barbara Brackman HERE.  Just scroll down the Feb 1st 2013 post on her wonderful blog, Material Culture.
Hope you are having a wonderful day
