Well eldest daughter has gone home again so it's back to just me and Mr T
although not for long as I will have all three children in Norfolk in 3 weeks.
We have had a great time together but I have got out of the habit of taking my camera everywhere with me so not many photos I'm afraid
( or thank goodness depending on how you feel about my photography).
Now the sun has arrived we have been able to use our new
garden furniture and have lunch outside.
Do you like my mini bunting?
I made it last year to use for decorating presents
and in the usual way put it somewhere safe until Christmas.
I found it a couple of weeks ago while looking for something else,
which of course I still haven't found.
Please tell me I'm not the only one his happens too.
Yesterday we went fruit picking so I now have a freezer full of Raspberries
and a fridge full of Strawberries- with cream, ice-cream
or just sugar.
Which is your favourite?
Coming from good
West Country stock it has to be cream for me.
Also this week I have had a couple of Swaps on the go.
It was my turn for the
Travelling Craft Box, organised by the wonderful
Linda at Hookin' with LaaLaa.
I didn't take any photo's of it so It doesn't spoil the surprise for the next person
but it was great fun. It arrived at 7am (thank you Mr postman) so I made a coffee
and took it back to bed to savour opening it.
If you are on the list but haven't received it yet you are in for a treat.
The box came to me from Gill at the Vintage Gardener and
this lovely lady put a few surprises in the box especially for me
which I had to open first.
she makes these fabulous labels from lovely vintage garden ephemera
and I was lucky enough to get a pack of these,
along with the pretty blue fabrics in the background and
a notebook covered with flowers and this pretty
charm as the page maker.
Thank you Gill they are lovely.
The box has been sent on to the Wendy at the crafters Apprentice
and I hope she enjoys it as much as I did.
The other swap that arrived this week was the jar swap
this one organised by Katie at
I was paired with first time swapper
Eileen at In My Playroom who appears to have got the hang of it very quickly
as my jar was packed with all sorts of wonderful things.
Lots of buttons and threads, pins and feathers
but my favourite is these Dorset buttons in
a pretty baby blue.
Thank you Eileen.
Well the olympics starts tomorrow and I'm one of the lucky people
to have got tickets so I'll let you know how it all goes.
Must remember my camera.
