Baking on the last day of term

I love baking and don’t do enough of it as my daughter tends to do the most of it and she is really good. I started to teach my children to bake and cook from a very young age, when they were still toddlers, as it was a way of entertaining them and spending quality…

Fun at the beach

Yesterday evening the teens and I went for a walk along the beach and it was such a gorgeous evening. We played hot potato ( good for the biceps so I discovered ) and I photographed my new tea towels and then we strolled home as the sunset. Tea towels galore now in my Etsy…

Bees and pom poms

This week has been yet another hectic week but I did finally have a spare couple of hours to sew a cushion cover which has been on my to do list for sometime now. I had this lovely piece of bee fabric left over from an apron I made ( remember it Cathy ) and…

Weekend fun

It certainly has been a hot one down here on the South Coast (UK) . We have been having breakfast in the garden, lunch in doors as it’s cooler in rather than out, back in the garden for dinner and then outside for the evening. The garden is looking pretty in pink at the moment…

Sun and Sea

Feeling thankful for the little things …….. Yesterday evening the teens and I went to the beach and it was so beautiful my youngest enjoying an evening swim selfie time with my son before he went of for a swim. Quiet days in the garden listening to the birds sing their little hearts out whilst…

Pom pom scarfs

I like wearing scarfs and wear them most of the year, knitted and chunky in Winter, an infinity scarf in the Autumn and in the Spring and cooler Summer days, a much lighter scarf made from soft cottons and an element of fun. I have never made myself a scarf Β and to be honest, it…

Something for myself

I share on here lots of my makes for my shop and I forget to share what I make for myself. So today I will share what I made yesterday. I wanted to make some fabric bracelets inspired by some I had seen in a book I was given for my Birthday, Lotta Jansdotter Everyday…

What a week ….

It’s been a bit of a funny old week, I had so much planned and it all started well but has gone down hill since ! Monday was spent sewing and packing orders and making bread, by Tuesday I started to feel a little yucky, and had to cancel my plans but still managed to…

All things blue

I think I have said before, I love the colour blue. I wear it daily, its my go to choice of colour when choosing fabric, I adore bluebells and forget-me-not’s ( my garden is covered in them ), bright blue skies, pottery and more. So today I went for a walk in my favourite woods…

Japanese style apron and something new.

I have for ages been meaning to make myself a Japanese style apron for when I am working at home sewing or crafting, but getting around to making something just for me takes a long while ! So this morning I set out on a mission to sew myself the apron using this lovely soft…

The Simple Things

Sometimes we just have to remind ourselves of whats important to us as it is so easy to get caught up in this rat race of life. Want is a horrible thing and a horrible word, but so many of us want what we can’t have but once we accept what we do have and…

The Colour Yellow

I seem to be drawn to the colour yellow at the moment. I am finding that it is a colour that makes me happy and dream of warmer days and because of this Β I have been adding the colour in some way or another to most of the rooms in my house and because of…
