I've been browsing some lovely blogs this week & you guys are getting beautiful blue skies, sunny gardens & days at the beach, whats going on???? Here in Ireland apart from the odd glimpse of blue the sky has been grey, cloudy & rain has been our lot now for weeks. I should emigrate, but i'm such a home bird, so pray for us poor smooo's over here that the sun will smile on us soon :)
,Any way i stayed busy indoors, had picked some elderflower & made up some cordial
Got two & a half bottles, which will NOT last long, love the stuff, will be making this as long as the flowers are on the trees, its just so refreshing.
Made a new cushion for Bethany, she was feeling under appreciated so some cheering up was needed. When she saw it she said "hey mom, you're just soooo cheesey" but i swear i saw a smile :)
It looks good with her quilt so i got to photograph some of her sketchs in return, i love her drawings, i think she's got real talent
What do you think, i got a fair exchange!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also made a long awaited for bag for Ella, as soon as she spotted this fabric she was hooked, so a new bag was requested...............................................
for which i got millions of hugs & kisses, they love to do that at eight. I thought the japanese flower was a nice finishing touch & ellie loves it :) smiles all round, despite the grey sky.
Crochet hardly left my hands this week, i really wanted to finish the bunting, we're at blocking stage
so almost there. Can't wait to hang it, hopefully in my garden :), we'll see!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm refusing to look at the forecasts, i'm just going to have a happy out look, the sun is there we just need those clouds out of the way, easy:)
These roses are not from my garden but i can pretend eh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They are lovely , arent they? I do love to have flowers around the house, its definitely worth a few euro every week :)
Well "The Waltons " beckons, famliy night, popcorn, maltesers & relaxation.
