Recently I’ve been

Making a little patchwork hexagon flower for my Mum's birthday card using the kit from a recent Mollie Makes. It's the first time I've tried patchwork and am now tempted to do some more, I've always thought I lack the patience to make a big quilt but now I can see why people get hooked!


Working on plans for a redesign of floral and feather with the wonderful Magic Feather Designs - watch this space!

Loving these new lampshades from Wilko, it was the copper that convinced me and I brought two, one for our hallway and one for the landing. The star shape casts great shadows when lit in the evening - super cozy.


Photographing the sunshine yellow blossom in our garden. It's our first spring in the new house and I know nothing about plants/gardening so the blossom was a brilliant surprise. My mum reliably informs me that it is a forsythia and I've committed this to memory by naming our one Bruce because I'm terrible at plant remembering proper plant names.


What have you been up to?

    1. Make sure to get them from the website, in store they were an extra £8 each for some reason! x
