I've had such a fun day making another commission for my shop - I'm loving making up the letters, cos I get to play with my Cath Kidston fabric. Yay! I've also had a rather nice addition to my patchwork squares today - you may remember that almost a year ago I signed up to receive 10 patches a month from my local patchwork shop. Just look at what arrived this morning.
Lovely, 1930s inspired prints.
And last month were these, which I also adore. I'll have to get busy with thinking what I can usefully do with them.
I've had a couple of bad months with the patches, but for the most part they've been brill, and I love the mystery of it when the little envelope drops onto the mat.
Speaking of nice prints, at the car boot on Sunday, I picked up this beautiful silk Gap skirt - I'd been wanting a retro silk skirt, and there it was. I'm so pleased with it.
Now, I have to go shove a lasagne in the oven - bit of a puzzle for you, if you've gotten this far (thank you, if so!). Why does my littleun love bolognaise, shepherd's pie, pasta and bolognaise bake, homemade meatballs, etc, etc... and hate lasagne? I just don't get it. So every so often, I try making one again... cos we all love it. He'll be moaning tonight, I know already. Sigh. Can't please everybody, I guess.
Thank you so much for dropping by. And thank you for my awards - thank you to Melanie for this one
I'm supposed to pass it on to 10 blogs... but everywhere I've visited recently has this award... I'd love to give it especially to:
Painting New Memories
Thank you all for having lovely blogs that really do make my heart smile when I visit.
I was also the lucky recipient of this one...
This is the Bella award, meant for blogs that are really lovely and new to you. I think it's really pretty. It was given to me by Tracey, who had very rightfully got it herself because her blog is scrummy. Take a look. I need to pass it on to blogs I've recently found, so I need to have a think about that.
Thank you both for my awards.
