Nursery preparations

Mr. Margie made a cute shelf for the Nursery (and some corner shelves), Mel found pretty hooks in Laura Ashley for the shelf that fit in well with the vintage theme. The bags are packed and ready for the great event.

Mel has all the linens, shelves, accessories, mirror,blankets, quilts, clothes, toys unpacked ( i even tried my hand at making bunting), waiting for the vintage style Mamas and Papas Nursery furniture to arrive next week.

I am knitting and sewing in between work and gardening. We have had some really lovely sunshine in the last few days and the garden is thriving.

I hope wherever you are in the world that you are having a good day.

Big hugs,

Its Pimms time

The Anya Hindmarch shop has relocated in Kildare Village I went along for the official opening last Thursday evening and partook of a glass of pimms, filled with summer loveliness. Nothing says summer is here quite like a pimms brimming with strawberries, cucumber and mint. The bags looked splendid in their new home as did the staff who were very helpful and welcoming. The shop is now located next to Molton Brown whose staff were also present offering visitors a hand massage.

Big hugs,

More Baby Crafts

I have been busy creating a cot quilt, bumper and pram quilt, bunting and dolls in ready for the arrival of baby. I love this work and have a wish to do it full time.

I based all the designs on the heart favors I made last year for Mel and Chris's wedding.
Leiny and Rommeij baked 100's of cupcakes and these tiny little cakes for our Easter party.

I am in Henley on Thames helping to get the Nursery ready this week, so more news soon.
Big Hugs,
