What a lovely weekend and fabric bunting
I hope you've all had a good Bank Holiday. I've been having lots of fun, though it was colder than I'd thought, and as we went away, I had to put up with my thin choice of clothes. We visited a really pretty village, and had a stunning walk through a local bluebell wood which is privately owned, but opened for one day a year by the amazing 81 year old owner, who we were lucky enough to meet. Wow, is all I can say, but I'm afraid I haven't photos at the moment. Sorry.
I've also been busy planning things for the shop, as I want to update it frequently. I've finished a commission this week for some letter bunting, hence the A and E dotted into this post, and got that posted off. I've done more bunting for the shop, and will drip it in this week when I get the time. My list gets longer and my time gets shorter at the moment. Anyone else familiar with that problem?!
And just to prove I'm not only obsessed with Cath Kidston... here's a sneaky look at a Laura Ashley bag I'm going to pop into the shop later this week.
I popped to a car boot on Sunday morning very early, and was lucky enough to get three things on my car boot wish list since last October: an overlocker, a pie maker, and a slow cooker. I can't wait to use all three. Though perhaps not simultaneously. I have not a clue how to use any of them, but I'm hoping the instructions will be idiot proof. I also picked up some balls of wool for just 20 pence each... not bad, eh.
Now, off to look at my overlocker, finish some more fabric bunting, and have some cocoa. Thanks so much for stopping by - and thank you for your terrific and supportive comments on my last couple of posts.
