and the tray,

And the tea towel,and the travel mug- but I dropped it,
 AND the shopping bag,

and two sorts of bunting,
and the face paint????
and a big shopping bag that I forgot to photograph,
and actual union jack paper chains[I had to look for them]

And the car flags and the big flags and the kids have the tee shirts,
and the hair bobbles and sunglasses, I even had union jack MnMS yesterday
Mr shed man has the royal underpants and did I mention
five, yes five different union jack  sofa cushions,
The next village up the road is having a best jubilee decorated house competition, why didn't we think of this?
OOH YES, I am definitely ready......
Anyway, I had a good day today,I went to town to buy a watering can- hose pipe ban etc...blah blah
, and saw a basket of threads in the window of the charity shop,they had to come home with  me
,also three rather fine necklaces, gorgeous beads....

And a great hat with a good open weave, guess what I will do to it?

Sewing? oh yes sewing,
I am really excited about my new project, but you will need to visit my other blog to see it,
night night......Tina.

All present and correct

well, here it is, done and dusted
This little book is a birthday  present for Frankie,

I hope she likes it
I certainly enjoyed making it.

I love the way the pocket is also the hinge.

I found this little motto in a bag of fabrics she gave me for the kids, so added that as well.

Oh, I love these little books

I felt like a very proud mother last night, because, when I turned up at my local quilt group, several ladies had made their own version of the little book of pockets ,didn't have my camera with me so I cant show you, but ooh, I do feel proud.

Last Saturday, I was at the unique cottage studios- for sheep day, all the artists were demonstrating their techniques based on wool.
Angela was in her studio demonstrating dyeing wool,I was stitching a little picture ,made of dyed woollen blankets, and Wendy was demonstrating  needle weaving on the little copper wire frames- it was completely engrossing and we were all very absorbed in stitching these tiny little thingies.

Isnt it sweet....

I am starting a new project,dont know how it will work out, but its entertaining me,its a little meander book, keep watching to see how it goes

I found this scrap of a william wordsworth poem and it just set me off.........
  And then my heart with pleasure fills,and dances with the daffodils.

And if your wondering what this is, visit my other blog here.,

night night.
