Home again, home again, jiggety jig....
After all the partying and general birthday shenanigans, back to the normality of everyday life - well, as normal as you can get in this household.....
I got back from my hols, checked the calendar and realised I'd better get my act together if I'm to present a half-decent craft stall at the NCT fair on the 12th! So, I've been cutting out like crazy, smoke pouring off my scissors - now all I've got to do is join 'em all together.... :)
There's the makings of another drawstring bag, an apron/tote/doorstop in the doggy fabric, a little baby sunhat at the back and one of the little pillowcase dresses in the strawberry material. Ready, steady...GO....!!
Here's a closer shot of the strawberry material, some greeny spots and a red dotty material that I couldn't resist in Doughty's Fabric shop in Hereford (a few little scraps of fabric just happened to fall my way and I couldn't just leave them there...at least, that's what I told my OH!!)
While I was trying not to let my lovely OH see what I was buying *grin* he was busy taking some artistic close-ups of the baskets of fat quarters displayed around the shop.
Aren't they fab?? Love the abstract-ness of it all - in fact, I'd just like the whole basket in my house so I could glorify in the colours - think it would make one heck of a jigsaw!!
Just before I go, here are a couple of shots as a reminder of a great week away. Here's Julia pouring out some sparkly fizz - she didn't spill a drop - what a steady hand that girl's got :D
And this was how we sat for a couple of nights - feet up on the wall, glass of fizz, watching the sunset - it doesn't get much better than that.
Mates together, sitting under the Indian Parasol that the Dunnits gave me - it's so pretty!!
Finally (thank goodness, I hear you cry...!)
