Oh no it's nearly Monday...........





Just had to stop for cake. It is meringue that  kind of collapsed, but still very tasty and gooey. 


Made some printed bags this week
The patchwork is made from vintage fabrics, and I hand printed them too.

My 'new' Vintage petticoat about to be washed, no not the stripy cloth the peachy pretty thing!, and can you see my picture of St Ives in the background, I wished I was there now deep sigh.....

We have both been off work this week..Easter hols...and I know I am bad to be like this......and I know I do love my job, I do I really do....but I really don't want to go back tomorrow (sad girl).My  days have been filled with sewing and reading and running and playing music and walking and making cakes how on earth am I going to find the time to work this week, never mind get up at 5.45 am......  What time!! 
Us women we are so wonderful we really are  ha ha...
Have a fabulous week, and thank you so very very much for all of your lovely comments to welcome me back, I will be popping round just as soon as I can

Hi,
I love your photos of your cleaning and other lovely bits and pieces! The enamel bucket is perfect to make things more enjoyable!

I was thinking of you just this morning as I went through my reading list, and wishing you would be back soon. It seems wishes can come true.

LYNN, I CAN'T TELL YOU ENOUGH HOW MUCH I LOVE YOUR STYLE! IT IS SOOO UNIQUE AND SWEET! I THINK YOU SHOULD WRITE A BOOK WITH MOSTLY PICTURES OF THE THINGS THAT YOU CREATE. I KNOW I WOULD BUY AT LEAST A DOZEN! ONE FOR MYSELF AND THE REST FOR GIFT GIVING.

I FEEL BAD FOR YOU HAVING TO GO BACK TO WORK AFTER HAVING SUCH A LOVELY HOLIDAY AT HOME, DOING JUST WHAT YOU LOVE TO DO.

I AM AN AMERICAN GIRL WHO SPENDS MOST OF MY HOLIDAY TIME IN SHROPSHIRE. I JUST LOVE IT AND I TAKE LITTLE DAY TRIPS TO OTHER PARTS OF YOUR BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY. IF YOU ARE EVER IN MUCH WENLOCK, I THINK YOU WOULD ENJOY THE YARN/ART GALLERY CALLED "IPPICAN". IT'S A GREAT LITTLE SHOP THAT OFFERS A LOT OF INSPIRATION AND FIBER GOODS.

HUGS, JUDY

Wonderful spring cleaning to wash away those winter cobwebs. Lovely bags and I'm sure your petticoat will be gorgeous once it is all freshly washed and smelling divine!

A perfect start to the week with Lynn's beautiful photos. I adore the printed/applique'd bag :-)
I hope you've had a good day back at work today and that you are still full of the joys of homemaking and Springtime when you finally get back to the nest this evening.
