sweetie blocks

I have been working on my sweetie blocks this week to add to the fabulous blocks made by the We Bee Modern Too ladies. I have a lot of orange and pink ones but really need to add some more green ones.




I seem to have a bit of a thing for pink at the moment, not pale pink but knock your socks off fuchsia. I even bought myself a jacket that colour (honestly it is better than it sounds). Anyway, I digress, but it seems I am being pulled by the pinks and am really struggling with green!

On another subject entirely, we went to the Helsinki Zoo at the weekend. Now, the last time we went it was winter (what were we thinking) and I can honestly say it was the coldest I have ever been in my entire life. To be fair I should have been prepared we were going to see an ice sculpture competition. Well this time it was warm and not only that they were running a sand sculpture competition. I thought you might like to see this.




Who knew you could make such great castles with sand!

  6. Love that block. The sand sculpture is nice. Every year they have huge sand sculptures at The Neptune Festival here at the beach. It's amazing how talented people are and what they can do with sand and water.
