What happened to summer?

I know, I know - it's been much longer than a week since I updated. Summer used to be endless hours at the pool or at home just hanging out and relaxing - this summer though it seems I'm never home! Feels like I spend all day dropping off and picking up the kids from one activity or another. I guess it's just the age they are at - they seem to be enjoying it though. My mum is here for a visit and I don't think she's enjoying it quite so much. It's been a few years since she's had this much activity in her house.
I have managed to get a few things done. Made some more present pillows for a birthday party for twins (with my DH as the reluctant prop guy)

Pillows for twins

and also another bag made to order

bag in pink

I never would have chosen these fabrics to go together but it came together surprisingly well - a little brighter than I would have picked, but she loved it and that's what counts.

For Father's Day we went up the mountains to our favorite picnic spot. I love how every time we go there is something new to discover and this time was no different.

In all the years we have been going there I can't ever remember seeing so many mushrooms!!
They were in every color and shape and size and the more you look the more you found
So my oldest DD and I went on a mushroom hunt - hoping to catch a glimpse of a fairy or two along the way. We never did see a fairy but I'm sure they were just to fast for us :o)
