Dressmaking, cake making and celebrating

What an action packed few days we've had. Here's a quick round up.

We attended a workshop called 'Top Shop Toy Shop' in which we snipped and sewed to make delightful dresses for our teddies. Hermione sat ever so patiently sewing for well over an hour. She completed the outfits with very little assistance.

We climbed to the top of the Baltic and admired the view up the Tyne.

It's a long while since we had been to the Baltic and it's changed. There's now a very child friendly area dedicated to learning. Lovely backdrop to sit and play.

Hermione made a huge cake.

We bemoaned the fact that having eaten our picnic in the car, we then discovered a picnicopolis of all things. Timing is everything huh?

We celebrated the life and works of Beatrix Potter with china tea, tales of Peter Rabbit, Two Bad Mice, and a couple of crafts.

Lots of fun and laughter!
