Floral happiness!

 Lot's has been going on in our house in the last week,firstly another little Cath Kidston tapestry make can you guess what it's going to be when it's finished?
We broke up from school just a little over a week ago and this beautiful cake was a gift from a pupil,it was almost too good to eat!But I can assure you it really did taste as good as it looked . . . .Mmmm!And it was just soo pretty I wanted to share it with you.
And on Thursday it was our wedding anniversary and Alice wanted to pick me some flower's from our very pretty little garden.Now that the rain has finally stopped and the sun is out the garden look's just amazing in full bloom.I may have to share some picture's with you again this summer.More on my Cath Kidston union jack cushion later this week,it may even be a Ta-Dah moment.The theme for this week appear's to be a floral one!I'm wondering how you've all spent the first week of the holiday's?

A little treat & some progress!

 I needed a new hook for the kids book bags as Hamish starts big school in September & I found this just adorable brightly coloured owl hook.I just love it!
 In between showers this weekend I've actually managed to get in the garden where the weeds are nearly 6ft high,I have to say I haven't finished it's an on going job.I did pick some of the lovely flowers we've got growing :-)
And despite the interruptions from Alice and Hamish about going for walks and bike rides,and the weeding and house hold chores i.e washing,dusting,hoovering,etc,etc . . . . . . . .You get the idea?I have actually managed to make quite impressive progress on my CK union jack cushion,even if I do say so myself (vbg).I have a list a mile long of WIP that I hope to finish when we break up for the summer holidays . . . . . .more on that to follow.
P.S I also have a little list of all the things I'd like to try making too,time permitting of course.
