A couple of weekends ago I took Holly to her first concert, and it was also the first time we had been to wembley stadium. Its was an amazing day, with 6 and a half hours of great acts, including my favourite (pitbull) and Holly's favourite (The Wanted). Definitely a day to remember.
last weekend we went to visit my mum and dad. Although the weather was far from summery we had a wonderful time and did make it to the beach. We might not have been in our swimming costumes but we did manage a long walk and lunch on the rocks. We also went on a steam train and visited an otter sanctuary, this one loved swimming about under the water!
Last minute cakes for the jubilee picnic at school were the order of the day when we got home last night, and we went a bit crazy with the red, white and blue icing. They certainly went down a treat though, even if they didn't look particularly neat and tidy!
On a different note, have you taken a look at the pinterest board for the umbrella prints competition? Repins count towards a peoples choice winner being chosen, so whether you vote for my entry or another, or more than one, it is definitely worth a look at all the lovely things that have been created.
My entry is finished!!
After looking at the collection of trimmings I was sent for a l-o-n-g time, and then spending more time thinking and pondering, I decided to go with something a bit different. When I ordered my trimmings pack I had assumed that I would sew something. But as I read through the rules and information one line stuck in my head – ‘we never said you had to sew anything x”
So I didn’t! I got out my waterslide decal paper and scanned all my trimmings into the computer to create a set of decals. One plain white cake stand and mug later, these are my results.
This is the set of trimmings I used, with their special competition label.
The competition deadline is 31 may, I can’t wait to see what everyone else came up with
It's been a bit of a tough week this week, so tonight I spent a little while looking at some of my newest fabric and tried to decide what to make next. I think the first is destined to become a top, (it's hard to photograph but the pattern is a little bit iridescent) and the second a summery dress, I think I will be pondering for a little while longer yet...
Well hopefully it is just around the corner, or some sunshine at least! But if not, you can have a little bit of summer on your bag or holding your keys, with this next new colour-way of leaf keyring/bag charm. Find it here
