Whoops - Another month has gone!! New Makes!

Hello, sorry I've been so lazy with my blog over the summer. I have been experimenting with 100 Flowers to
Knit and crotchet, hence the bluebell brooch,

and this rose brooch. I am trying a poppy next.

Also it has been my Mother in Laws Birthday and I made her a patriotic cushion to go with the Emma Bridgewater Union Jack teapot we got her on our hols in Derbyshire.


Next, I kept driving past a little antiques shop in my local town and this cheerful little face kept smiling at me and I was smitten..........

Eventually I gave in and sent hubby to negotiate a price - I thought it was an ornament but it is actually a vase, she makes me smile :-)

And a great piece of luck - A friend told me about a furniture warehouse clearance this weekend and the fact that they sell end rolls of upholstery fabric (at a fiver each!) - well it would have been rude not to get any!!! Even hubby was impressed with my bargains!

Let's hope the weather cheers up this week - we were all on hold last week, which was wet and windy, the washing machine broke, but had good times at Southwold Maize Maze and Africa Alive.
