Freshly found today, in fact I'm still on a bit of a high about this sweet little print of a Blue Tit on Cherryblossom, but I didn't just find 1, no no no, there were a few, so I thought of my bloggy chums and bought them all! I have popped a few over here if you'd like to take a peek!

Wonderful thrifted fabrics too! My lovely friend Karen found them for me!

Have a sweet day!

New Note Tags

Made these today, as I ran out of notecards for my Etsy orders! Just a simple card tag and a rose motif cut from a paper napkin. And of course, you can't beat a bit of bakers twine!

I really want to improve my photography this year. I took our camera on a country walk today, this was the hedgerow

Hope you are having a lovely Sunday!

Vintage curtains to bags

Every now and again I buy curtains from the charity shop or car boot if I like the print. I've had these 2 sets of curtains hanging around and generally taking up too much space! So on Wednesday I decided to have a bit of a bag making session!

I haven't lined them as the fabric is quite thick, but I have finished the seams with zigzag stitch.

I was going to add corsages to finish but then I remembered the cute bobble trim.

I followed this tutorial which was quick and easy!

I have made 2 for myself and a few for my stall.

My son is making Brownies and they are nearly done, must away to pop the kettle on!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

just a few things ....

I wanted to share with you!

A pretty brooch found on one of my little jaunts,

The fat quarters I took to Oxford sold really well last week, so I have been cutting lots more! This pretty vintage candystripe sheet goes on forever!

I love this 1950's fabric too, in fact anything with roses on I seem to be attracted to!
I have popped a few of these Here too!

I love this pretty Colclough china I found at the CS, but I am torn as whether to keep it for myself or pop it on my stall

The cute Westie dog is a little gift for my niece!

These little Scottie brooches have sold well at Oxford too, I love to stitch them, so relaxing.

I hope you are all having a lovely Easter holidays and are making the most of the sunshine, tis gorgeous here!

Well I have to say after a lovely start to the day ( previous post) the day continued to be pretty special! There was a knock at the door about 10.30am, a delivery of a Cream Tea! From my gorgeous girl in Brighton.She sent a Sainsburys delivery of scones, Bonne Maman jam, clotted cream, strawberries, Twinings afternoon tea and The Observer!It always brings a little tear to my eye when special things like that happen! It was a wonderful treat and I thoroughly enjoyed all my special attention! Thanks kids, love ya loads!

My son was very attentive all day with lots of cups of tea bless him! He set out the cream tea on a cake plate too!

We did get soaking wet in the afternoon, shower and hail whilst we walked Wilson and we got caught out but hey ho I just put my PJ's on at 4pm and read a book! Haven't done that for a while!

Just wanted to say Hello! to all the new followers and commenters on my blog too! Welcome to my little bit if the world!

I REALLY do appreciate ALL of your comments and the fact that you popped by!

Have a wonderful week

Happy Mothers Day!

To all mothers, wishing you a Happy Mothers Day.

My son has made me egg on toast for breakfast, I REALLY appreciate this gesture as he doesn't usually appear until 11.30 am!(he's nearly 17)
