Fit for a princess (or two)!

Hi all,
I hope you are having a lovely weekend, or long weekend if that applies to you!  It's been lovely having hubby around for four days and the girls won't know what to do tomorrow when he is back at work and it is just them and me.  Daisy is on half term, so we will have to find things to do in the day.  Our weekend was wonderful, and the girls had fun at the show in Corbridge on Monday.  Martha had her first go on some fair rides and loved them all.  Unfortunately I had to go on with her and I'm not so keen on the spinning tea cups!  Today, we just chilled at home as both girls were shattered.
As I said yesterday, the girls made crowns at a crown workshop held in the village on Saturday.  Daisy chose to make the most difficult - but impressive - one.  The frame is made from willow, bent and taped down.  We had to leave for a party before she had finished, so we took all the materials home to finish later. Daisy decided that she didn't want to use the blue and yellow material that she was given, so had a rummage through my fabric boxes and chose pink and silver.  The ball is polystyrene, covered in some of my pink and silver glitter, and Daisy wanted a blue heart for the top.  Here is her crown:
 Martha also made a crown, but chose a more simple one, from blue foam and stuck sequins on:

A few weeks ago, Daisy's school had a bunting making day, where the parents were asked to come along to.  Martha and I went and saw Daisy creating a music themed piece.  Martha was also given a piece to decorate.  At the celebrations on Sunday, the bunting was hanging in the food tent, so I had to find the girls' ones and took a picture.  Here they are:
I will see you later this week.
