My space is also a bit scattered and chaotic this week. What's new, I hear you ask?
Lots of projects on the go as usual. I'm attempting to make a vintage linen quilt, so I have been looking in the oppies for special pieces. The above photo is a shocker but I'm blaming that on autumn/winter light, or lack of it...
I was so excited this week to recieve a lovely tea cup from Jess and, from Kate, the dearest little bear (made by Jess!) Thanks so much to both of you.
As you can see Moby has taken to living in the cup, I wonder if I will ever be allowed to use it for tea...? He is so beautifully made & adorable, isn't Jess clever?
And now for the not so clever.... it seems it will be a wet and rainy couple of days as we plant our garlic so I had the brainwave to make us some water proof pants. I found a couple of yellow plastic poncho's in the cupboard and ...
traced around a pair of jeans, so far so good.
Here is me modelling the finished pants (I like to think of it as my Dottie Angel pose, minus the caravan & extremely beautifully arranged background......and no, I am not naked underneath..)...just before I bent over to pick up a pin off the floor and... RIP!!!.....we're talking major tear action. Yep, it appears that plastic footy poncho's are made from the thinnest, most easily torn material, it wasn't pretty. So, I'll just have to take a few pairs of spare clothes instead. Shame really as they did look so fetching..
A big chunk of my week has been taken up with preparations for garlic planting. So I've been peeling and popping the bulbs like crazy so that they are all ready for today when Michelle and I head up to Callawadda. I'm looking forward to planting but I have that funny anxious feeling I usually get about leaving the kids. Silly really but I guess it's because we are together such a lot. I'm sure I'll be fine once we hit the road.
Before I go thankyou again to everyone who left comments on my Celebration Giveaway post. It really blew me away and made a happy day even more fantastic. If you haven't entered yet then feel free, the giveaway will be open until Monday when I will draw out three winners!! Hope your space isn't too scattered today, lets go and see what else is happening over at Kirstys, see you soon xo
