hello Friday .....

..... I'm so glad to see you

We are planning a chilled out weekend
the last few have been full on
I have already scooted around the house
chores are done
feels good.

I intend to spend the rest of today sewing

..... and the weekend .....

just pootling about
a little gardening
a little walking in the bluebell woods
a little knitting
a little lot of eating

A lot of thinking about my Sweet B
I hope her poor little head doesn't explode with all the revision
exams very soon

My little orchard is looking magical at the moment
blossom and narcissi
what a perfect combination

This is the last of my narcissi to bloom
pretty huh?
this one is Narcissi 'Felindre'

Apple blossom ..... you are my favourite flower in the world
(I think)

and cherry blossom, you're pretty fabulous too

Love Love Love spring time
it's just so

Thank you for so many wonderful comments on my last post
they were all very touching
and the birthday boy was thrilled with all your kind wishes

Wishing you a wonderful weekend

Back soon 
(with a Ta Da)

BIG love

  1. Gorgeous applique apples, so cheerful and neat!
    Lovely blossom and flower photos, it all looks so much lovelier in the sun against a blue sky doesnt it?
    Have a lovely weekend chilling

  2. Those stitched apples look deeeelicious, Jooles! I wonder what they are for?? I'd like one anyhow! Your orchard sounds so beautiful, what a lovely combination of bulbs and blossom at the same time....your narcissus is such a pretty one and the apple blossom pictures are just delightful!
    Good luck to Sweet B with all her revision and for her exams too.
    Wishing you a happy weekend.

  3. The narcissi are so sweet! Hope you have a lovely and relaxing weekend- hoping for a little sunshine too.xx

  4. Dear Jooles
    Lovely photos. All that hard work of bulb planting last Autumn was definitely worth the pain! It looks beautiful.
    Best wishes and enjoy the weekend you have planned.

  5. Enjoy your weekend, xxxx Ale

  6. Your apple blossom is absolutely gorgeous. We get less and less on ours each year, it's a bit depressing. I fear out apple tree may be poorly.

    Enjoy your chilled weekend, it sounds lovely. x

  7. Hello sweet Jooles, So glad you have your housework done and can enjoy sewing today and over the weekend! Yay! I have my housecleaning to do today and my sweet hubby is going to help me. I finished my little bear, so I will begin another one. I love the apples you are making! You sew beautifully my friend! I always enjoy seeing what you are working on. Will the knitting be for your sweet Violetta? :) I hope you enjoy every moment of crafting, gardening and eating! It sounds perfect dear friend! Bless sweet B's heart! I know that is so much work! She will do an excellent job! Your orchard is beautiful and so are your photos! I love the narcissus, apple blossoms and cherry blossoms! They are all so gorgeous! I love spring too! It makes you feel so good and alive! Have a wonderful weekend sweetie! Love you bunches, Paula xo

    1. hello sweetie :o)
      I hope you get all that housework done in no time and then you can have some fun.
      I will be knitting for Violetta yes, but also i am knitting a bunny, the pattern is by the amazing Julie ~ little cotton rabbits blog .... so i am spoilt for choice, don't where to start!

  10. Your apples are so pretty Jooles! (I'm wondering what you're going to do with them too?) Beautiful flowers in your garden...the little narcissi is a treasure. I hope your lovely boy had a fabulous birthday and good luck to Sweet B and her girls are doing the same but it also means summer will soon be here and they will be home!
