Friday 3 May 2013


It's been a glorious week full of sunshine and sweet little moments. I can't believe that I have spent a week thinking about what I'm going to make next. It hasn't really bothered me which has surprised me as I like to have something waiting in the wings with my yarny projects. Instead, its been great to work on one of my granny square crochet blankets I'm making for a special friend.

Lots of fun birthday cards and wonderful wishes from family and friends and you dear readers,thank you so much. 

I've eventually got round to ironing and preparing my vintage sheet and new fabrics for making my Spring patchwork duvet cover for Alice. I hope to get cracking on with this this bank holiday weekend some time in-between the sun rays :o)

Alice has been making "how to look after a bunny" notes since a little bun bun might just very well be hopping into our lives very soon!

We've been doing some planning and thinking about what we might just be going to at the Charleston Festival this May.

Last, but not least finding a sweet flower on my wind screen wipers put there by my gorgeous girl on my birthday on her way to catch her early morning bus to school. She is such a sweet thing.

Hope you all have a relaxing weekend sweeties
See you all soon
