Last weekend the entire Bella Bobbin Brigade took a trip away to West Wittering for a long weekend camping. We had a brilliant time, truly blessed with some lovely weather and 4 children who thoroughly enjoyed the freedom of running around like lunatics! 

West Wittering beach is a glorious patch of sand (patch is abit of an understatement - it stretches for miles!) with 156 lovely beach-huts running along the back by the sand dunes. Parking charges were slightly eyebrow raising (Mr Bobbin, a bean counter by trade, spent most of the day mumbling about daylight robbery!).

Here are some snaps from our weekend:

Camp Bella Bobbin!

Feeding time at the Zoo!

All the gang together! Except me, who is behind the camera!
The Bella Bobbin Sandcastle - it was a team affair!
Beautiful Blue Skies - and a Very Happy Bella!

Quite sad to be home now, though we do have lots of lovely new creations to show you inspired by our time away!

We are still here!

It's been a while - I know!! School holidays are keeping both myself and Sarah very busy (and not at all close to loosing the plot!?*!) 

We are all off Camping together in Sussex tomorrow, I shall take my trusty camera with me and share the snaps when I return. I am hoping that I can sneak some bunting up onto the tent this time (Mr Bobbin put his foot down last time - but I'm not going to let a minor thing like that get in my way!!) 

Crafting has had to take a bit of a back-seat the last few months for me, the girls are growing fast and I'm concious of making the most of the time they will be a home with me. My eldest is starting school in September - can't believe how quickly the time has flown! Any tips for keeping it together on the 1st day of school?!? 

Sarah on the other hand has been super organised and has been busy crafting away, making some lovely items that I hope to be able to show to you soon. 

Bella Bobbin is still ticking along, albeit in a slightly lower gear at the moment, we are even on the Folksy Featured Page today - it's all about 'Shrooms! (and subsequently I now want to purchase every featured item on the page!!):

Hope you all enjoy the weekend!
