Its My Island....You mean Ireland... Yeah its mine !!!!

Oh my we had the mother of all summer showers today, quite a down pour, as we often say here at home " it most definitely was a day for ducks" :) Here have a peek


It was like this until maybe 4.30 then "viola"  beautiful sunshine that nipped in quickly, dried up all the rain, so thank God my garden doesn't look like a swampland, unbelievable this weather, " T I I ", this is ireland, still i do love it :)
BUT i do hope it improves later in the week as we are off on a trip to cork, we are going to " hopefully " get to visit some beaches, foto wildlife park, ballymalloe house, Kinsale, Oh lots of beautiful irish sights, i am sooooooo looking forward to the break. Apart from the usual neccessities, husband, kids, clothes, food, beach chairs, tennis rackets, deck of cards, bedding, towels, swimsuits, camera,  bucket & spade for Ella...........
the only thing i will be bringing is my new crochet bag stuffed with yarn, needles & half finished blanket, which by the way i fully intend to make the most of. I am so looking forward to lots of R & R in the company of an extremely attractive man (my husband) & my hookey project..........Bliss!!!!
Hark, the rain has just started again grrrrrrrr.........

Anyhoo on a brighter note some stuff to show you this week... pressies for friends..............
First a nice little crochet bag for Ella's best chum Isolde, she turned eleven so we bought her a little bottle of perfume as well, i think all little girls get to a stage where they love all that, & she did, smiles all round.
Oh here's the bag, idea courtesy of  The Royal Sisters,  great blog. one of my absolute favorites.


Its such an easy pattern & oh soooooo cute for lil girls  :)
Also wanted to show you some baby quilts for special friends in Mexico, I always love to give some thing special & homemade to people you love.........



Really love the fabrics in this one, very girlie & very sweet.

I love fabric & would really love to try my hand at designing some of my own. I know there's a site online called Spoonflower that gives you the opportunity to do just that, so maybe after summer hols i just might give it a go....................!  Lots of ideas already swimming round in my head for this one.
Its funny my daughters had nagged me forever about this blog, you know getting it started, just because they knew i really wanted to.... the other thing they constantly say to me is " sooooo when are you going to design that fabric eh", also just because they know i want to!!! How lucky am I ?????  I have a constant source of encouragement right here at home every day, God is good, He sure knew what He was doing when i got these four....................................

Thats my girls xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I so so so so so love them xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
I know you all know that feeling when it comes to your children :) They are the best !!!
So its time for some "feet up on the sofa" time, I think it'll be Deep Space Nine this evening..... I know, I know I'm such a geek, but sure it could be worse  :)
Yaw'll have a good evening now, thank you kindly fer dropping by!!!
Lots of love, hugs & kisses

What an amazing photo of the rain!!
What a gorgeous quilt - and yes, you should start designing your own fabrics- you certainly know what looks good.
Also, you make such lovely things ... I would love it if you could post some tutorials (in your spare time, obviously!)
Love your stuff as always,
