Busy Busy Busy.....

Saturday morning, it is fair to say was not good, it should have been, Andy came home.  The children having hardly seen him for 3 weeks, due to night shifts, airshows, golf, detachments argued constantly trying to grab his attention.  I was caught up dealing with a work issue that needed my immediate attention, tempers were fraying, it was hot, there were tears...you get the picture!!  A change of scenery was required and in the afternoon, we headed out in to the fields, it's amazing how just getting outside can change things.  The children ran and ran, laughed, enjoyed each others company and held hands...... all was well again.

On a stitching note, I finished this little piece which I sketched last weekend.  At the moment I haven't quite decided what to stitch along the bottom, something pretty and sentimental, I think.

I've also been working on a commision for 'You are my Sunshine' .

Some gorgeous new Tilda fabrics arrived for Pretty Fabrics and Trims, are they not just the prettiest.  I'm imaging Poppy wearing a dress in this one already!

Finally, I wanted to share this picture.  I gathered the petals off the back lawn from the wild rose that grows in the hedgerow at the bottom of the garden.  I never cease to find it amazing how nature can provide the most wonderful inspiration.......

    1. Hello Natalie, thank you so much for popping over to visit and your very kind words!
