Country-Living Spring Fair …

I did have a lovely day yesterday at the C-L Fair!
So much to see – and buy! We had lots of treats and maybe the best of all was being able to share the day with my all-grown-up daughter. Apart from strolling around and enjoying the stalls together, we had coffees, amazing raspberry & white chocolate muffins, lunch at The Hilton and she waited patiently, surrounded by our shopping bags, whilst I had one more look around Loop in Islington on our way home!
We visited Camden Stables market which was memorable – most of all for the statues of the horses which were superb! It was such a good idea to take the bus back to Waterloo – so much to see, so many famous addresses en route. Altogether a brilliant day out.
“Thank You – Sunflower!”
I’ve returned home brimming with ideas and today I’ve been busy …
Suffolk Puff patchwork is so much fun. I saw some yesterday and couldn’t wait to get home and have a go. It’s been years since I made anything with these adorable puffs. Oh – look at the chair I picked up this morning too …
How totally Country-Living is this combo? A retro chair, a vintage knitted blanket and a soft, scrummy patchwork cushion! I’m also working on recovering a beautiful round basket – just the job for a sewing basket and …
This is a Hollywood Themed wedding cushion for M & R who are getting hitched later in the year. They specified diamonte, black & white – very glam! The lace is actually sparkly too and in the sunshine it positively glimmers. Fingers crossed for a sunny day for the happy couple.
Talking of sunshine – today has been brilliant too. Buzzards soaring overhead here at home, the first cut of the grass and sitting outside to do some sewing (suffolk punching)! I also enjoyed a Pimms – made from tea! We tasted this great idea yesterday at the fair and treated ourselves to some tea from The Lawn. This afternoon I enjoyed Rhubarb Patch Tea, topped up with fruit & lemonade – just perfect for a sunny afternoon!
And now there’s another hour to enjoy the garden and still some evening time to enjoy rippling time before bed!
OOOoooo I do love Springtime!
