Too tired to talk.  Here’s some pics of the new letter bunting - orders now being taken….

Wowzers!!!  What an utterly amaaaaaaaaazing day we had today at River Cottage!  It was just beautiful weather all day too.  We got there at 7am when all was very peaceful and still.  The light was amazing and a lovely haze hung in the valley.  The flowers seemed so vibrant.  My stall looked amazing and my *NEW* letter bunting was a best-seller to put it mildly!  I almost ran out of tape!  I should be asleep by now but it was all so exciting I’ve had to make some more stock for tomorrow.  There couldn’t be a worse weekend (sleep-wise) to lose an hour overnight, but Hooray for British Summer Time…

….ooooh – and when it was all over, you get a lift back up the hill in the back of a tractor.  That’s the husband sitting in a trailer being towed behind a tractor in the evening sun with my 100 year old sewing machine being taken home for a little over-night maintenance.  The sewing machine that is , not the husband.  Although he needs a little maintenance too I think…

I’m ever so ever so busy this week making lovely things to sell this weekend at the River Cottage Get Growing in Spring fair.  I’m supposed to be making bunting, embroidering cushions, ironing quilts and putting cards in little packets.  But I came home this afternoon and this was the sight that greeted me….

…the most inviting looking nap-inducing bed in the world.  I just wanted to climb right in and snuggle up with a book and have a little doze.  But I managed to resist it and am now knee-deep in acres of bunting….not sure I made the right choice.

We’re having a lovely relaxing sunday afternoon here knitting, sewing, doing the crossword and reading the papers.  I’m wondering what’s next for this fab little family of cotton dollies.  I love the daddy’s funky moustache especially….

I literally could not be having more fun designing and creating different textile designs.  I’ve worked this one in a range of colourways…. which is your favourite?

I promised photos of a wonderful colourful laughter-filled weekend and here they are….

It was a seven hour drive from Dorset up to Lincolnshire but well worth it – lots of fun, food, laughter, music, games and love….

I’ve just come back form a wonderful weekend away in Lincolnshire.  I’ll put lots of photos up as soon as I’ve recovered from the seven hour drive but for now, I was excited to come back and find I’ve been featured on the Rosie and The Boys blog with a little interview!!!

Hopefully by this time in a fortnight my amazing new fabric will have arrived.  I’ve become completely addicted to designing fabric!  What’s more fun than making lovely things from lovely fabric?  Making lovely things from lovely fabric you’ve designed yourself!  The letters are going to be for making letter bunting.  I literally can not wait…
