Just thought I'd pop in to say hello and wish a "happy birthday" to anyone lucky enough to be celebrating, my daughter has a friend who is officially "8" today!!
I got some lovely fragranced daffs for £1 to go in my new jar/vase it's about 8" high and has "Gartons of Birmingham" on the side and it has a flat glass lid I don't know what was in it, maybe a sauce?
My friend Evelyn gave me some moss from her garden so I got a cheery pink primula to go in an oversized cup and put the moss around it, a bit of spring indoors, mind it's been beautiful outdoors today, Rachel and I went to do a bit of shopping this morning she's just moved house and the worktops in the kitchen are dark blue so until she can get them changed she bought a red microwave, a lime green toaster, a purple kettle and a yellow bread bin and it's realy brightened the kitchen up and also a little shopping trip with mam cheered her up a bit as it's the first time she's been out since her op.
I've been sewing again, this time a shopping bag, made from my lovely wooly blanket stash, and lined with some left over CK print,
I embroidered "rabbit" on the front and added a couple of red buttons and I'm nearly finished my "Lucey Rabbit" to pin on but in the meantime I "borrowed" Rachel rabbit so you could see it finished.
It's not a shopping bag for the "milk and bread" type of shopping more the" ball of wool and yard of pretty ribbon" type of shopping, just right for a vintage fair I'm going to on Sunday where I hope I come home with my shopping bag full to bursting!!
I'm off to catch the last of the sunshine before I go to the slimming club where I'll be the only one not to loose anything, I knew I shouldn't have had that large slice of chocolate fudge cake with oooodles of fresh cream on this morning, it was utterly delicious though!!
