Around the house this week








Mother's Day gifts, Easter plans, birthday bunting, sunshine and flowers, we have a new sofa Harry has a new bed and hopefully some free time during all of that to have a sit down with coffee and one of those cookies.  Hope you have a lovely weekend and the sun is shining where you are x

  7. Harry looks very comfy and I'm sure he's saying thank you! Did you free-motion- stitch the quilt on your machine? It's very beautiful!
    I love all your little friends on the tree - such lovely gifts, and your fabrics and trimmings, as well as your gorgeous flowers, fruit and cookies. I do hope you had that relaxing cuppa and really enjoyed it - along with cookies of course!!!
    Happy Days to you Julie, Joy xo

    1. I'm afraid to say I bought the quilt Joy! It's something that I really would like to do, but as I am busy sewing for my business I really don't have the time, so I treated myself... I love your quilts and am very envious! Julie xx

  11. I just ordered myself a box of fancy chocolates for Mother's Day as my husband is away so I'm home alone with my boys....I'm hoping to bribe the with xbox so I might get to sleep past 6am - ha ha. Like the keyrings, they look very nice clustered in the twig and that duck is rather cute as well!

    1. At least you'll get yourself something you really want. Hope you get a lie in. If it's any consolation now my boys are teenagers they sleep for England and Harry wakes up at 6! x
