Greetings lovely friends & readers
It has been another busy week filling Orders that have come in recently ....
I bagged up 10 bags each of Cottage Garden & Citrus/Clove potpourri's & sent over to The Farm Shop at Gordonton as they had completely sold out.
|(Not sure why my picture is showing the pinky colour at the bottom)|
Kerrin emailed me to ask if I could please make her another 6 handy kitchen hanging towels ... I had made her some several years ago & she loved them & used them every day.
Her request was for No bright colours please so I kept to a fairly pastel colour palette. I knew she absolutely loved anything paisley so I was able to find enough paisley fabrics in my stash to make up 6 different ones.
My friend Vicky's son & partner are having their first child & are not going to find out the babies sex beforehand. They have done up the nursery beautifully using natural caneware & complimented with greys/mustards & a hint of turquoise. Vicky asked me to make a bunting in these colours so she can give to them at their baby shower.
I had the natural linen in my stash & my friend Gail gave me some grey linen to go with it. I purchased the cute novelty print fabric from my local Patchwork Shop & was able to fussy cut out the letters making sure I got the little animals in. I found a nice light mustard fabric in my stash so used this to make the binding.
Vicky was delighted when I delivered the bunting yesterday.
In the middle of the week a surprise parcel arrived from my friend Joy of The Joy Within . Joy decoupages these sweet wooden hearts & had been sending out a few to friends for Valentine's Day. I just adored the one she had made for me 💗
As my sewing room had undergone a long-overdue tidy up this week I decided to hang my heart right above my sewing table where I could see & enjoy it while I worked.
This photo above is looking up at our house from the back part of our property. I was walking up from the pond last week & noticed how pretty my hanging baskets of geraniums were looking at present.
(& look at that blue, blue sky 💙)
I first grew the one above left from a cutting from my Mum & once it was established I started two more cuttings off last summer. You can see the other two baskets in the photo's above right. They seem to do well here despite the wind that can whip through this area.
I love this photo above though it wasn't always like this & he was a bit overwhelmed & frightened at first but once he settled down, he really enjoyed it - as did his Granny 😉
I thought it was really well set up & enjoyed looking at the models & reading the information about each one.
Sid's favorite dinosaur is a Carnotaurus which is in the photo below left.
I liked the fact that there were lots of interactive activities there ... Sid got to dig for fossils above
He got to climb up high inside a dinosaur Bouncy Castle ... & to color in Dinosaur pictures.He got his face painted with Dinosaur horns & his Daddy stuck his hand in a dinosaur's mouth (!!) 😉 It was such a fun & enjoyable Sunday outing.
Thank You all So Much for your visits here today dear friends
Enjoy the rest of your week & remember to be kind to yourselves & to each other,
With much love & friendship to you all,
Julie & the furry ones x0x0x
