Lets Catch Up!

I’m sorry I’ve been absent from the blog recently. With the Easter holidays  and Mabel being off the last 3 weeks from Pre-school it inevitably lead to me falling behind on things like the blog!

Flower Power Pillow

Despite being able to sew I’ve been pretty rubbish at furnishing our home, and have made do with buying all our cushions and curtains. I’ve always begrudged doing this but time and feeling a little short on inspiration I’ve made do with buying. So I was flicking through the new issue of Love Patchwork and…… Continue reading Flower Power Pillow
