At the weekend we had two of our fairy god children here for a sleepover. It was the first time they’d ever been away from home on their own so it was big deal for all involved. We had so much fun together visiting Puzzlewood, a friends farm, playing in the garden and in the studio.  Here are a few photos of our time together.

Such a great weekend. Can’t wait to do it again.

Until next time…
