Happy mail n gardening

very pleased to be featured in the spring issue of Haute Handbags 100 favourites

dont you just love this quote..I was being a rebel at the weekend though and had coffee surrounded by trendy student types..think I was the oldest there at leaf bar off bold st, Liverpool

here is my ikea hack..I bought a few of these white holders but never really used them so decided to drill holes for drainage and screw them on to this trellis to cover a boring fence that was in shade so hardly anything grew there..going to fill the bottom troughs with different types of ferns I think.

Happy Tea or Coffee Tuesday

Sunny sewing

First day of the vernal equinox today so hoping for a bit more warmer weather.  Decided to use some colourful material to make this star window panel..will finish it later on today. I always like to support a little old lady who sells material at a local market so bought some more material off her and made this scarf to go with my jacket. At the weekend I made this delicious banana cake and yesterday at craft group we made these bling eggs and decorated a little box using pistachio shells!

Happy Tea Tuesday

Spring here soon

The weather is gradually warming up and Spring will soon be here which definitely makes everyone happier.  Yesterday at craft group we did some glass painting which I think looks lovely on my windowsill. Today I went to knit and natter at a cafe in the local park..its lovely to walk through the park looking at all the emerging crocus bulbs and of course while I was there we all had a nice cuppa with our knitting or crochet in my case..lovely group of women and we have poetry readings too. I also wanted to make some easter type tags so played around with some rabbit stamps and papers.
