Weekend Loveliness

 What a glorious weekend!  We decided to take the weekend OFF and spent Saturday wandering around Bridport antiques market & the Food Festival (after a rather delicate start because of Friday Night's Beer festival!)
Then today we drove down to Plymouth and spent the day with my Mum & Dad
A very lovely weekend indeed
(oh and I also made some flower drawing pins)

Jungle Baby

It's  not often that 'baby' themed craft products come in such a modern colourway  -  I love this set of buttons!

The Legs are explained at the end!

 There's always room for one more shelf unit
John needs all the credit for squeezing this into position yesterday....and I'll take some credit for filling it up already ;-)
the 'legs' are from my old shop keeping job in a gentleman's outfitters - these were being thrown in the skip and I thought they may come in handy one day.....6 and a half years later and they haven't *yet* been useful....but I like them, and they used to look good in the window displays I used to make, plus I like that they now look like they are holding the barn's roof up

My BIG scrappy cushion

 I had the urge to sew some of my fabric scraps into something....
 ....a great BIG squishy cushion :-)
 It's not stitching perfection BUT it does look bright & cheerful

How do you work?

 When I start a new task at work I like to knuckle down and finish it in one hit - but when it comes to sewing I find it suits me more to do little bits of sewing as often as I can - I'm currently making a BIG batch of samples - new design ideas, new colour combinations....basically I'm playing with my patterns/designs until I get them just right.  And that takes time.  Mistakes take time (and patience!)
 But I'm slowly turning little piles of felt pieces into little piles of finished work....it's great fun!

2 year time hop

Our Facebook cover photo of our Barn was taken in January 2015 and it doesn't really look the same anymore!
Here's the old photo:
[click to enlarge - there are 3 photos in each strip]
and here's the new photo:
The furniture is all in roughly the same place but the amount of stock had certainly swelled ;-)
I like it more now it's all full up !!
