I have been in my sewing room a LOT lately
and here's what I've been up to .....
Do you remember a while back
when I showed a sneaky peek of a commission I had been asked to make?
It was for a lovely lady
who wanted two advent calendars for two different families
each family have four children
so the pockets had to be big enough to fit four little treats in
..... now that's a lot of treats!
I liked it so much that I decided to make some smaller ones for my shop
I used my favourite Tilda fabrics
this one is in the 'Winter house' collection
and this pretty teal one is in the 'Winterbird' collection
You may recognise that name from my last post
my little Winterbirds, friends of Percy Pecker no less
they can be found here
We have had some cute visitors in the garden
they are helping us with the pruning
in fact they have managed to 'prune' every single leaf
off of every single rose plant
The photo is not brilliant as I took it through a window
I tapped on the glass and they looked up as if to say
"yeah ..... what?"
look at their little powder puff tails ..... sweet
Today I have been to my pilates class
and got through my list of housework chores
I plan to get all of my jobs done before tomorrow afternoon
because ..... guess what?
Sweet B is coming home for the weekend
I am SO over-excited
I have missed her so much
She has chosen her tea for tomorrow
Eastern spiced chicken
for pud I am making sticky pineapple pudding with coconut custard
and for the weekend munchies ~ Millionaires's shortbread
It's a jolly good job I've burnt lots of calories today!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend
P.S All bulbs have now been planted ..... YAY .... and no blisters this time
